The Hunger Games: Catching Fire finds its Mags in Lynn Cohen

Lionsgate and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE have announced that Lynn Cohen has been cast in the role of Mags in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel Catching Fire. A former mentor to Finnick Odair, Mags is an eighty year old Hunger Games victor from District 4.

Cohen is best known for her roles in MUNICH, "Sex and the City," and "Law & Order."

Meanwhile, Deadline is reporting that Sam Claflin (SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN) is looking like the man to fill the highly sought after shoes of Finnick Odair, as was rumored a few weeks ago. It hasn't been formally announced yet, but he's been the favorite for the role and his schedule will now allow him to take it on.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE on November 22, 2013.
