Books into Movies: Hunger Games - Catching Fire (Amanda Plummer Cast as Wiress)

catchingfire - square

There are many new tributes to be cast in Catching Fire. Finnick and Johanna are of course the favorites of the new bunch. But if you've read the books then you know there are a few other memorable tributes, including Wiress. Lionsgate announced that Amanda Plummer has been cast as the veteran (and slightly crazy) District 3 tribute!

Plummer seems like the perfect choice. Her roles in previous films like Pulp Fiction are a bit nuts, so I think that she can really bring Wiress to life! In addition to Plummer, Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been cast as Plutarch, and Jena Malone has been offered the role for Johanna.  

What do you think? Does Plummer look like how you pictured Wiress? Excited for the movie? Thoughts below!


  1. Thanks for posting all these Hunger Games casting updates :D It's so much easier to keep up to date with them because I already visit your blog daily. I'm really excited for this casting. I've never heard of this actress before but I like that she's not uber-mainstream.

    1. Thanks for visiting daily!!! YOU ROCK!! I also LOVE that they're getting less mainstream people. She is definitely awesome.
