When Robert Knepper was cast as “Antonius” in the adaptations of the final book in The Hunger Games series, we were all a little puzzled. Antonius is a character that was added to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and Part 2, he was not found in the books. When asked by MTV, he revealed that even he doesn’t know who this mysterious character is.
“I don’t even know yet!” Knepper said laughing. “I know what I read for. I read, this was last summer… This is a huge movie. This is a huge two movies, and I know that what I got is not what I’ll end up doing, they’re so secretive about this. You’re going to find out when I find out,” Knepper continued. “Well, I’ll find out a little bit sooner than you, but I still haven’t found out for sure!”
An article over on MTV from December lists Antonius as “President Snow’s minister,” which makes us think he’s probably a bad guy (his body of work would hint that as well). However, with this new tidbit from the actor himself, we’re thinking he could be someone entirely different. Maybe the person who tortures Peeta? Ah, I don’t even want to think about it!
