Tributes, meet your new Gamemaker!
Philip Seymour Hoffman has agreed to play the master schemer in charge of 75th annual Hunger Games, Plutarch Heavensbee!
The Oscar-winning actor was offered the part last month. Sources tell us he agreed to take the pivotal part in Hunger Games: Catching Fire over the weekend, and was made offish to the public today!
Now that they've nailed down Plutarch aaaaand cast Johanna Mason, the only BIG part they have left to decide on is Seksi McSexerton District 4 champ, Finnick Odair!
Lionsgate better hurry this up!
If they don't make up their minds soon we're gonna start an uprising! LOLZ!

We are BEYOND excited for P.T. Anderson’s (There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights) inquisitive film The Master, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and the always charming Amy Adams!
The film explores the allure of a charismatic leader and his religious cult (AHEM SCIENTOLOGY).
It’s TOTALLY a subtle dig at religion and why/how people get SO easily enthralled by something/someone that offers peace and relief from the emotionally volatile state of humanity.
Get manipulated by The Master (above)! And remember, life is SUPPOSED to be challenging and difficult, because that’s what makes the meaningful parts so rewardingly satisfying…

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

Our beloved Andrew Garfield unfortunately didn't get the Tony Awards win for Best Performance By An Actor In A Featured Role In A Play, but instead, it was a recipient who was just as worthy!
That's right, SMASH's Christian Borle took home the win for his work in Peter and the Starcatcher, beating out Michael Cumpsty, Tom Edden, and Jeremy Shamos!
Aww! Such a sweetheart!
Easily one of the nicest speeches of the evening, and so cute to see his mom and sister looking on from audience, clearly so very proud!

/ Comments Off
We had never seen Arthur Miller's iconic play Death Of A Salesman before Wednesday night. We hadn't even seen the movie! So we were filled with curiosity when we went to catch the new Broadway revival, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield.
We were expecting great performances, and - thankfully - we were not disappointed! But would we like the show? Would it still be relevant after all these years?
The answers are yes and YES!
We loved Salesman, the play, and loved this Mike Nichols-directed version.
The complexity of families and the dynamic between parents and their children and between siblings - that never gets old! It is material so rich for mining!
The play packs such a emotional punch! There is one scene and moment in the second act, where Garfield's character lashes out at his dad and then crumples in his arms in a ball of tears that is just so powerful! Hoffman and Garfield made it all seem so real! We were bawling ourselves!
The rest of the ensemble was equally good. And we are very happy that we got to experience this production and venture out of our usual comfort zone of just seeing musicals!

They should get Tom Cruise next! He WAS in PT Anderson's film Magnolia. LOLz.
Okay, so Tom is probs not going to do this film
or any film with Paul Thomas Anderson ever again, but we're pleased to report that Amy Adams is set to star in PTA's Scientology film!
Adams will star as the wife of Philip Seymour Hoffman's character, who has been described as "a man who returns from witnessing the horrors of WWII, and in an attempt to find himself, he forms a belief system that catches on in the 1950s."
Joaquin Phoenix has also been attached to the film as Hoffman's "right-hand man." Other actors in talks for the film include The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's Lena Endra and Laura Dern.
As we said before, this sounds like a very inneresting film, and we're excited to see Amy Adams on board! We know she'll be wonderful!
Are U excited to for PT Anderson's Scientology film? Do U think Amy is a good fit for her role?
