Catching Fire Casting Philip Seymour Hoffman

Philip Seymour Hoffman Has Been Cast in Catching Fire

On the heels of last week's news that Jena Malone has been cast as Johanna Malone in Catching Fire, Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has reportedly accepted a role as well. He'll play Plutarch Heavensbee, the new Gamemaker at the Capitol, in the second chapter of the Hunger Games trilogy.

Hoffman has most recently been on Broadway, playing the lead role in Death of a Salesman, so this will be quite the change from his recent work schedule. Having recently read the second book myself, Hoffman seems like an ideal fit for Seneca Crane's successor. What do you think, is he the type you were imagining while reading the series?

This is perfect!  I love PSH and am so glad this is the role for him!!!!!  I just read Plutarch's wiki summary to remind myself of this character, and it made even more sense.
