Who Might Philip Seymour Hoffman Play in Catching Fire?

by at . Comments

Who will portray Finnick Odair in Catching Fire? Let's table that debate for a moment and focus on another key role from The Hunger Games sequel.

Multiple sources confirm that Oscar winner and 2012 Tony Award nominee Philip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the character of Plutarch Heavensbee, the Gamemaker at the Capitol who takes over for Seneca Crane and who is far savvier than his predecessor.

He plays a pivotal part in the world of Katniss, Peeta and company over the course of the next book/film chapter.

Hoffman, one of the most respected actors alive, would be a major coup for new director Francis Lawrence. He just finished a run as Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman on Broadway.

No word yet from the star or the studio, but come on. This has to happen, right?
