Adding to the cast of strong supporting actresses who will eat Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games (we haven’t read the books), Lily Rabe has joined other recent additions Natalie Dormer and Julianne Moore in the franchise’s Mockingjay two-parter. Rabe, who most recently lorded over the mossy bank in her second season of American Horror Story, will take charge of the even more treacherous territory of District 2 by playing Commander Lyme, a past Hunger Games victor who helps lead the rebellion. According to the novel’s character descriptions on the Internet, Commander Lyme is meant to be middle-aged, over 6-feet-tall, and muscular—but what, were they supposed to hire Zap from American Gladiators? Well, I'm sorry you feel that way. Perhaps you should finally accept that Zap just isn't right for everything.
