OFFICIAL: Omid Abtahi Cast as Homes in ‘Mockingjay’ Part 2
Looks like we’re going to be rounding up the Star Squad this week! The official Hunger Games Twitter has just announced that Iranian-born actor Omid Abtahi has been cast as Homes in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.
For those of you who have a hard time placing who Homes is, he’s a member of District 13′s Squad 451 (also known as the “Star Squad”), which is the squad of sharpshooters which Katniss, Gale and Peeta are a part of when they go to the Capitol in Mockingjay. There’s no detailed physical description for Homes, he’s only described along with fellow squad member, Mitchell:
Two older guys, Mitchell and Homes, never say much but can shoot the dust off your boots at fifty yards.
You may recognize Omid from several TV shows and movies such as 24, Revolution, NCIS, Homeland, and 2013 Academy Award best picture winner, Argo. You can see his IMDb profile here.
