Prison Break star Robert Knepper has been announced today as the newest cast member to the Hunger Games franchise. It said he will be playing a character names Antonius. Only thing is.. there is never an Antonius mentioned in the series.
We did a little googling and did find this info from Hypable (a fan site)
After searching our copy of Mockingjay and doing a search on Google, we are hard pressed to find a character named Antonius in Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games trilogy. In fact, the only mention we found was in a piece of fan fiction in which an Antonius is a doctor from District 12. We do not consider this his role in the movie.
Antonius could be an entirely new character in Mockingjay written to expand the world of The Hunger Games. Having two films for one book is affording producers the opportunity to add more to the story. For example, producer Nina Jacobsen said last month that President Coin’s role will be larger. Our guess is Antonius will appear with a role in District 13.
UPDATE: Lionsgate’s official response about the character is “no comment.” According toDeadline, Antonius is “President Snow’s minister.” No other information is available at this time.
While searching for some stuff on youtube I came across these videos and thought I’d share. These are in no specific order. Some of these you might remember as we’ve posted them before some of these are brand new as they were recently released. Either way I think they are amazing.

With us being just a little under a year away from Hunger Games: MockingJay part 1 and only a few weeks after the release of Catching Fire. We are already getting the option to pre-order the Catching Fire DVD/BluRays!
Amazon U.K. has listed a Catching Fire DVD and Blu-ray “Deluxe Edition” set which includes 130 minutes of bonus material plus 45 minutes of bonus content exclusive to the deluxe version.
This unique edition features both Hunger Games films on DVD/Blu-ray as well as Catching Fire’s soundtrack and eight “art cards.”
At this time there are no details about what bonus footage is included in the roughly three hours of material, but we’d suspect behind-the-scenes looks and deleted scenes are likely possibilities.
The Hunger Games hit DVD/Blu-ray five months after its theatrical release, so you should expect Catching Fire to follow a similar release pattern by dropping around late-April 2014.
If special edition sets aren’t your style, a standard release for Catching Fireincludes the film in DVD/Blu-ray, Ultraviolet, and still includes the 130 minutes of bonus footage.
Do keep in mind that these are all U.K. versions of the DVD/Blu-ray, so those in America and other countries should wait for more details before pre-ordering any set. Given the popularity of the franchise, some outlets may have special versions of their own with a variety of exclusive material and physical goods.( source)
