Actress Amanda Plummer has been cast in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in the role of Wiress after Lionsgate made the announcement on Tuesday.
In Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games and second film in the franchise, the eccentricity of Wiress earns her the nickname “Nuts” from fellow tributes, and though she doesn’t communicate traditionally, her observations and contributions prove invaluable in the Quarter Quell.
Best known to film going audiences from her memorable and award nominated roles in Pulp Fiction and The Fisher King, Amanda Plummer is a Tony Award winning stage actress on and off Broadway. She can next be seen as the title character in the upcoming film Abigail Harms.
