Two more actors have joined the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 and 2. Lionsgate announced Friday that Mahershala Ali has been cast in the role of Boggs, and earlier this week the studio revealed that Patina Miller would play Commander Paylor.
Ali has appeared in a number of TV series with recurring roles, including HBO’s “Treme,” “The 4400,” and “House of Cards.” His film credits include The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Predators. Miller is best-known for various stage roles, but also appeared on the soap opera “All My Children.”
Mockingjay is already in pre-production, and is set to begin filming any day now. The two-part finale to The Hunger Games franchise will be filmed simultaneously under the direction of Francis Lawrence, who also helmed Catching Fire following the departure of director Gary Ross.
