On this day when we celebrate the birth of Katniss Everdeen, we got some hints about the Mockingjay Part 2 reshoots thanks to casting call announcements slated for filming June 6-8 in Atlanta. Looks like they need to film a 6-9 month old baby, a brunette aged 35-50, and Boggs and Plutarch doubles?
What??? Why Boggs and Plutarch? Feel free to disagree and give your thoughts on these guys, but here’s the casting call for those two:
Seeking African American Male
Dark Skinned and MUST be Bald
6’2 and 215 lbs
Subject: BALD DOUBLE
Caucasian Male / Blonde Hair
5’10” / 48 Jacket / Waist 46
Doesn’t need to be exact but closest match
Subject: BLONDE DOUBLE
Our speculation is that the Boggs double is needed for a quick reshoot of something they missed when filming his scenes last year, so it’s unrelated to the epilogue. The blond male I speculated as Plutarch because of the 46″ waist. That’s a bit of a mystery too, but again they might need a body double to add in to some shots due to the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. Or it could be Haymitch has put on a little more weight as he gets older. Or it’s just a random guy walking around town.
The other stuff though, clearly says EPILOGUE TIME. And it’s nice to have a date to speculate around. We knew it was coming, but now we know when!
It’s Katniss’s birthday, and we got some presents of hope.
