The Margaery Tyrell depicter is cast as Cressida in the two final films, which will see the return of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is not out yet, but the production team of its two follow-ups is already working hard on getting new names involved. From the announcement Lionsgate posted on Twitter, it is revealed that "Game of Thrones" star Natalie Dormer is up for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" and the future sequel.
English beauty Dormer is tapped to star as Cressida. The 31-year-old actress, also known for her portrayal of Anne Boleyn on Showtime's "The Tudors", is the first name in the "Mockingjay" cast ensemble that does not have either "The Hunger Games" or the upcoming "Catching Fire" in her acting credits.
Julianne Moore is expected to follow in Dormer's footsteps. The "Don Jon" actress has reportedly been in talks to jump aboard the first and second part of "Mockingjay" as District 13 leader Alma Coin, but her inclusion is not officially confirmed yet.
Both "Mockingjay" films will be directed by Francis Lawrence again. Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence will reprise her iconic role as Katniss Everdeen, an anti-tyrannical Capitol regime rebel.
The "Mockingjay" movies will bow out in 2014 and 2015, while "Catching Fire" is set to storm theaters on November 20.
