According to many many MANY sites today, Philip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire.
If you’re like me, then you read Catching Fire over a year ago. I only have vague memories about the second book, and I have no idea how many new characters are going to be introduced. Should I reread it? Yes. Will it take me forever to get to it? Probably. So, I had to look up who Plutarch Heavenbee is. Naturally, I was wrong…so good thing I looked it up!
The Hunger Games Wiki site says that “Plutarch Heavensbee is the Head Gamemaker in Catching Fire, taking the place of Seneca Crane. He becomes a commander of the rebel forces of District 13 in Mockingjay.”
Philip Seymour Hoffman has starred in Doubt, Charlie Wilson’s War, The Savages, Mission: Impossible III, Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley, among many more television shows and movies. I have been such a HUGE fan of Hoffman for as long as I can remember. He’s brilliant. I remember him the most from Doubt, which also starred Meryl Streep. It was a BRILLIANT movie!
Do I think that Hoffman would be a good casting choice for Catching Fire? Absolutely! This movie has such a great cast already, I’m so excited that he might join the rest of the cast in Catching Fire.
What do you guys think about Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee? Remember, he has only bee offered the part. He has NOT yet accepted the part. Let me know in the comments section below!
I found this information at Rollingstone. I also googled it and it came up on a million and a half other websites.
