We finally have some more casting news with Lionsgate putting out the word today that Lynn Cohen will play Mags in Catching Fire.
I’m sure none of you need reminding, but just in case, Mags is the 80-year-old tribute from District 4, who goes into Quarter Quell with her fellow district tribute Finnick Odair. Mags is one of the great characters in Catching Fire that makes the ultimate sacrifice for Finnick.
Some of Lynn Cohen’s previous work includes Munich, Sex & the City, Eagle Eye, and Across the Universe. She’s also been seen in many roles and recurring spots on a number of TV shows, including ”Law & Order.”
Catching Fire is due to start filming in September in Atlanta and Hawaii and will be release November next year.
So what do you think of Lynn Cohen as Mags? I think it’s a brilliant choice. Now we just have to sit tight until we hear who will be playing the amazing Finnick Odair
