Casting Roundup: Natalie Dormer Plays The Hunger Games, Angelina Jolie Enlists Some Soldiers

dormer Linda Ge writes for Bleeding Cool.

If there’s any other casting news that matters aside from Marvel in negotiations with the two newest members of the MCU family, you will find it below.

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer is the first official new cast member of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. She’ll play Cressida opposite Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. I read and loved those books, but really could not tell you who Cressida is. [Lionsgate Publicity]

Angelina Jolie’s adaptation of Unbroken has cast two actors you’ve never heard of in addition to Jack O’Connell, that other actor you’ve never heard of, in the lead role. Anna Karenina’s Domhnall Gleeson and soap opera star Finn Wittrock will play O’Connell’s character’s fellow stranded soldiers in the WWII true life story. [The Wrap]

Tye Sheridan will play John Travolta’s son in heist thriller The Forger. Travolta will play a jailed petty thief who buys his way out to spend time with his sick son, but is roped into doing one last job for some bad guys. [Deadline]

David Fincher’s Gone Girl, not to be outdone by rival Gillian Flynn adaptation Dark Places, has cast David Clennon to play leading lady Rosamund Pike’s father. She disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary to Ben Affleck, and dad, along with everyone else, begins to suspect the husband. [Deadline]

• Former The West Wing staffer Richard Schiff is joining Jeremy Renner-led biopic Kill the Messenger. Schiff will play the newspaper editor who discredits Renner’s Gary Webb’s work on CIA drug smuggling charges, ultimately leading to his disgrace and eventual suicide. [Deadline]

• Syfy’s pilot High Moon has cast Jonathan Tucker, who was a really promising and talented actor back in the Black Donnellys days. Haven’t heard much from him recently, glad he might be back. [Deadline]

• British actor Henry Lloyd-Hughes has landed the male lead and will play husband to Mia Wasikowska’s Madame Bovary in a new adaptation of the Flaubert classic. Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifan and Ezra Miller also star. [Deadline]
