Mockingjay Part 1

Cast:
Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen - A seventeen year old from District 12 and victor of the 74th Hunger Games, she becomes a reluctant hero and symbol of hope for the nation after escaping the third Quarter Quell in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. On her character, Lawrence said, "She's in a different world. She wakes up in District 13 and she has to adjust to a completely new life."

Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark - Joint victor of the 74th Hunger Games, he is captured at the end of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and that "he loses his mind" after being tortured. Hutcherson says that he's "always thought that the arc that Peeta takes is really incredible throughout the whole series" and that Peeta's character arc, "from the beginning he’s such a vulnerable young lad, and into the literally tortured, inflicted kind of PTSD-suffering person that he becomes in Mockingjay is kind of incredible."

Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne - Katniss's best friend from District 12 and now a soldier in District 13. He is one of the few hundred survivors after the bombings of his district. Hemsworth said on Gale's role in comparison to the previous films, “I mean Gale has the majority of his stuff is (sic) in the third book and it’s when you get to see him standing up to it all. You see bits and pieces of it through the first two [books], of how passionate he is about it, and he gets to sink his teeth in in the third one. Gale is a big part of the uprising"

Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy - A paunchy, middle-aged man and alcoholic, he is one of the only three victors from District 12. Now under the command of District 13, he is forced to go under detox as they do not permit the consumption of alcohol. He is no longer trusted by Katniss after he breaks his promise of saving Peeta before her.

Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket - Previously the Capitol-born chaperone and publicity representative for District 12 tributes during the Hunger Games, she is now a Capitol-born rebel in District 13. While her character does not make an appearance in the novel until the end, director Francis Lawrence reveals that he has expanded her role in the films, "She’s back! In the book, Fulvia basically replaces her. But how can anybody replace Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket in these movies? When [author] Suzanne Collins saw Catching Fire, she called and one of the first things she said was, 'There’s no way Effie Trinket cannot be in the Mockingjay films.' Effie brings such warmth and fun and levity to these dark stories. She’s the fish out of water in this one and fans will love how she has adapted to the world of District 13."

Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee - One of the leaders of the rebellion residing in District 13, he managed to pull the strings for the rebellion behind the scenes in the Capitol during the 75th Hunger Games by pretending to work for President Snow as the Head Gamemaker and helps Katniss and a few other tributes escape the arena. Hoffman says that, "his job becomes very different. The story becomes very different and everyone will see what happens.”

Julianne Moore as President Alma Coin - The president of District 13 and the leader of the rebellion. Moore was a big fan of the book series and has "read all the books all the way through and I'm like, 'I want to be in this movie.' Clearly [Coin] was the only part I could play." Describing her character in the books, she says "Coin is very sparingly drawn because you don't know who she is because she's only spoken about through Katniss' point of view. And Katniss immediately mistrusts her in the way sometimes a young person will mistrust an older person who is not familiar to them or in position of authority."

Donald Sutherland as President Coriolanus Snow - He is the tyrannical President of Panem and has an affinity for white roses. Sutherland compares Snow's dangerous battle with Katniss to a love affair, "because love affairs often start with people hating each other — the attraction is so deep and profound," he says. "This is going to go on until it all ends. Snow only gets better." Director Francis Lawrence says that "everything that happens in this story is driven by the antagonist, which is why President Snow is so vital, it gets very personal with these characters."

Natalie Dormer as Cressida - Resident director from the Capitol, she flees alongside her camera crew and assistant, Messalla, to District 13 to join the rebellion in hopes of ending President Snow's control of Panem. Dormer shaved half her head for the role, but originally intended to shave her entire head. She said she discussed it [with Francis Lawrence] and I took the job on the premise that I would possibly shave my whole head. I’m actually really pleased that we went halfway because I think it’s more the Capitol… and that’s where Cressida comes from. She comes from the Capitol, so she’s got a stylized thing going on and now she’s turned rebel. I think it’s right for the character."

Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair - Trident wielding victor of the 65th Hunger Games, he escapes from the third Quarter Quell alongside Katniss and other tributes and seeks refuge in District 13. He is distressed, unhinged and is unable to focus on anything other than his girlfriend Annie Cresta, who was captured by the Capitol during the escape. Claflin said that Finnick since the last film has "been left in a very, very sad and upsetting place. He's lost his wife and he doesn't know on where she is. It starts in a very distressing place for him, in the beginning of Mockingjay. He just goes on a hellish journey."

Robert Knepper as Antonius - President Snow's minister. His character does not appear in the books and is an addition to the adaptation. Knepper says during his audition he read for, but he knows that what he got is not what he'll end up doing, adding that "they [Lionsgate] are so secretive about this."
