Big news, Hunger Gamers: bearded thespian Philip Seymour Hoffman will play Plutarch Heavensbee in the next installment of the trilogy! He seems like the perfect guy to portray a crafty Head Gamemaker. How do we know? Emily told us.
That's right, your very own Sparkitor met Philip S.H. at the batting cages in New York a few months ago. Here is her hard-hitting report:
- didn't think I was going to hit (because I'm a girl)
- then told me he used to bat left handed and got the lefty cage and couldn't hit a ball
- then I got the left cage and he told me it would be too hard for me and I hit all the balls.
- and he was with his son who was very cute."
So there you have it! Mr. Hoffman is a trash-talker and not very good at baseball, but probably great at playing Plutarch Heavensbee.
What do you think of this casting news?
