Biography

Danny Strong fait ses études secondaires à la Mira Costa High School de Manhattan Beach. Alors qu'il est adolescent, il loue ses vidéos à Video Archives, magasin où travaille alors Quentin Tarantino, et a de longues conversations avec lui sur le cinéma. Il étudie ensuite le cinéma et le théâtre à l'Université de Californie du Sud. Il sort major de sa promotion et, à l'âge de 22 ans, donne des cours de théâtre à l'USC pendant la session d'été, devenant la plus jeune personne à assurer cette fonction.

Ses premières années en tant qu'acteur, à partir de 1994, se résument à quelques apparitions dans des séries télévisées et à des rôles dans des films indépendants. Il devient célèbre en interprétant le rôle récurrent de Jonathan Levinson dans la série télévisée Buffy contre les vampires, apparaissant dans 28 épisodes de 1997 à 2003. Il se fait ensuite remarquer pour son rôle récurrent dans la série télévisée Gilmore Girls de 2003 à 2007 et apparaît en 2010 dans quelques épisodes de la série Mad Men.

À partir de la deuxième moitié des années 2000, il se tourne essentiellement vers l'écriture de scénarios. Son premier script est celui du téléfilm Recount (2008) pour lequel il est nommé au Primetime Emmy Award du meilleur scénario pour une mini-série ou un téléfilm. Il remporte l'Emmy Award dans la même catégorie pour son scénario du téléfilm Game Change (2012). Il écrit ensuite le scénario des films Le Majordome (2013) et Hunger Games : La Révolte (2014 et 2015).

LouAnne (Michelle Pfeiffer), a discharged U.S. Marine, applies for a teaching job in High School, and is surprised and pleased to be offered the position with immediate effect. Showing up the next day to begin teaching, however, she finds herself confronted with a classroom of tough, sullen teenagers, all from lower-class and underprivileged backgrounds, involved in gang warfare and drug pushing, flatly refusing to engage with anything. They immediately coin the nickname "White Bread" for LouAnne, due to her race and apparent lack of authority, to which LouAnne responds by returning the next day in a leather jacket and teaching them karate. The students show some interest in such activities, but immediately revert to their former behavior when LouAnne tries to teach the curriculum.

With the nation of Panem in a full-scale revolutionary war, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), Cressida, (Natalie Dormer) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the District 13 unit as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. Although rebels - including fellow victors, Johanna (Jena Malone), Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), and Beetee (Jeffrey Wright)- now control most of Panem, the girl on fire must still overcome one last challenge to win President Snow's "game" - to conquer the Capitol at the risk of losing her friends and loved ones. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games as she realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival – they are for the future of Panem.

After being rescued from the destroyed arena in the 75th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen, along with fellow Victors Beetee and Finnick Odair, are taken to District 13, an independent district isolated from the rest of Panem that has been spearheading the rebellion, where she is reunited with her mother and sister Prim. While recuperating, she is introduced to President Alma Coin, the rebel leader, and is told that her actions in the arena sparked riots and strikes against the Capitol. Coin asks her if she will become the "Mockingjay"—the symbol of the rebellion—as part of their "hearts and minds" strategy. Katniss flatly declines, angrily reminding her that they left Peeta Mellark, her portrayed lover and fellow District 12 tribute, behind in the arena. At the suggestion of Plutarch Heavensbee, the former Gamemaker, she is taken to see the ruins of District 12, which was completely leveled by a Capitol bombing campaign (with the exception of the houses in the Victor's Village). After seeing that Peeta is being used by Capitol state television to quell the rebellion, Katniss reluctantly changes her mind and agrees to become Coin's Mockingjay, on the condition that Peeta and the other victors will be rescued and pardoned at the earliest opportunity, and that her sister, Prim, will be allowed to keep her cat.
