Robert Knepper joins fans on ‘The Hunger Games Mockingjay’ role: ‘I don’t know’ who Antonius is

When Robert Knepper was cast in The Hunger Games two-part finale Mockingjay, readers didn’t recognize the name of his character.

Now it’s confirmed that the actor doesn’t even know who his character is.

“I don’t even know yet!” Knepper said to MTV “I know what I read for. I read, this was last summer… This is a huge movie. This is a huge two movies, and I know that what I got is not what I’ll end up doing, they’re so secretive about this.”

Knepper will play a character named Antonius in Mockingjay, which is currently filming both installments under the direction of Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence.

“You’re going to find out when I find out,” Knepper promised. “Well, I’ll find out a little bit sooner than you, but I still haven’t found out for sure!”

Knepper is most famous for his role as T-bag on Prison Break, but has appeared in several film: Transporter 3, Hitman and RIPD. Most recently, Knepper played Sid Rothman in Frank Darabont’s Mob City and the TV show Cult.

You can see Knepper on The CW in Arrow as the Clock King.
