Man, they are continuing to kill it with these Catching Fire casting decisions. Snapping up one of the film’s adult roles alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman, Pulp Fiction actress Amanda Plummer will be portraying District 3 tribute and former Hunger Games victor Wiress in the upcoming sequel. According to Lionsgate’s press release, “[t]he 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.” Personally, there’s no other woman we’d rather see mutely ride on a chariot wearing an outfit covered in lightbulbs. It just feels right.
Why is are we so sure Amanda Plummer will kill it as the unhinged tribute? Because, just like PSH, she has been honing her “unstable and/or vaguely dangeous’ shtick her entire career. We picked two of our favorite offbeat Plummer roles below as proof. The only question? Who will play her nervous companion Beetee? Only time will tell. Tick tock, ya’ll!

Honey Bunny, Pulp Fiction (1993)
NSFW for language, since it’s, you know, Pulp Fiction. Despite all the swears, the most unnerving moment comes when Plummer’s character says, “Pretty smart.” Spine-tingling.
Rose Michaels, So I Married An Axe Murderer ( 1994)
We know this movie came out in in 1994, but just in case *spoiler alert!* Plummer plays the titular murderer, and she is epically craaaaaaaay. This time around she’s jus going to try to kill it, not Mike Myers. We said spoiler alert!
