It's official! Please welcome @Robert_Knepper as Antonius to the cast of @TheHungerGames: Mockingjay Parts 1&2. pic.twitter.com/LWSCS5AuApOf course, speculation as who Antonius could be has already begun. Many diehard readers have noted that most of Capitol's figureheads -- such as Stanley Tucci's Caesar Flickerman and Donald Sutherland's Coriolanus Snow -- have Roman names, suggesting that Knepper's character may be working for the president.
