Amanda Plummer has been cast in the second Hunger Games movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The actress will play the tribute Wiress in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins's bestseller, producers Lionsgate confirmed.

"The character's eccentricity earns her the nickname 'Nuts' from fellow tributes, and though she doesn't communicate traditionally, her observations and contributions prove invaluable in the Quarter Quell," they explained.

Plummer is a Tony Award-winning stage actress who is also known for her movie roles in The Fisher King and Pulp Fiction.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is released on November 22, 2013.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was recently confirmed to play Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee, who succeeds Wes Bentley's Seneca Crane.

It was announced last week that the third and final book of the Hunger Games trilogy Mockingbird will be split into two parts for its film adaptation.
