Miller will be tackling the role of Commander Paylor, the leader of District 8 and described as a woman in her early 30s, who looks too young to be a commander but who has an authoritative tone in her voice and a commanding presence despite her young age.
Miller is best known from Broadway, and won the Tony Award for Best Actress last year for her work in Pippin. She's also appeared in All My Children.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will be in theaters on November 21, 2014, and Part 2 will follow suit a year later on November 20, 2015.
