Hunger Games News: Philip Seymour Hoffman Cast As Plutarch Heavensbee?

Philip Seymour Hoffman hunger games

Well..

At least they have FINALLY made ONE casting decision!!

While producers claim to have no idea who will land the role of District 4 sexpot, Finnick Odair, (UGH!) they have selected an actor to play a less sexy pivotal role in The Hunger Games sequel.

The part of the new Gamemaker, Plutarch Heavensbee has been offered to Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman.

As you may recall, Seneca Crane (the Gamemaker from the last flick) was fired murdered at the end of the movie. Plutarch is a little older and a LOT wiser than his predecessor — and we think Mr. Hoffman is PERRRFECT for the part!

If the acclaimed actor takes the job of Gamemaker, it will set the scene for other award winning actors to volunteer as tribute for Hunger Games: Catching Fire too!!

Nothing wrong with any of that! Meryl Streep? Are you available? We could find a part for you too! Someone is going to have to play President Coin in Mockingjay!

    Phil is an asshole. He just fired his agent of 17 years because he doesn't want to pay commission any more! Talk about ungrateful. What a slob all around!

    Re: eatit – Well, it's not like his manager was a relative. Sucks but that's life! Would you still pay an electrician $300/hr even if you've learned how to do the work yourself? just because they've been your electrician for 17 years doens't mean you still owe them something. They have done thier work, they got paid a pretty penny for it and then they've parted ways? Isn't that the whole point of business? I'm sure if Phillip stopped getting work his agent would drop him because there's nothing more to gain.

    I'm getting excited for this movie again. Philip Seymour Hoffman is and excellent actor. I can't wait I will have to re-read the books before the next movie comes out.
