    Nerd alert: Messalla was not on the camera crew in "Mockingjay". He was one of the sharpshooters with Leeg 1, Leeg 2, Homes, and Jackson. Castor and Pollux were the camera crew. I'm wondering if there was some confusion with the press release on this, or if they truly have Messalla as the camera operator in the film. Time will tell, I guess.
