'90210' Star to Play Messalla in 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay'


Evan Ross


Evan Ross will be featured as the assistant to Natalie Dormer's character, Cressida, in the two final films.

Director Francis Lawrence keeps building supporting cast for his next two projects, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" and its follow-up. Just a day after Australian actress Stef Dawson was cast as Annie Cresta, a District 4 victor and Finnick's love interest, a "90210" actor is introduced as a new addition to the ensemble.

"Evan Ross cast as Messalla in @TheHungerGames: Mockingjay Parts 1&2," Lionsgate announces on Twitter. The said character is the assistant to Cressida, a part of the TV crew that follows Katniss Everdeen and shoots short propaganda films. "Game of Thrones" darling Natalie Dormer has joined earlier to portray Cressida.

As new names keep on coming aboard the two final films in the series, Julianne Moore has not finalized a deal yet. In June, the Oscar-nominated actress was reported entering talks to play District 13 leader Alma Coin, a manipulative politician who clashes with Katniss as her methods and motivations draw suspicion.

Jennifer Lawrence will reprise her role as the heroine along with Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth, who stars as Gale Hawthorne. Set to return from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is Philip Seymour Hoffman, who will make his first appearance in the second installment as Plutarch Heavensbee.

The first "Mockingjay" film will open on November 21, 2014, with the future sequel set for November 20, 2015. "Catching Fire" will hit theaters on November 22.
