RUMOUR: Philip Seymour Hoffman Accepted The Role Of Plutarch Heavensbee
The Hollywood Reporter had previously reported Philip Seymour Hoffman was offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee, the new Head Gamemaker after Seneca Crane’s death, in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and is also expected to reprise the role in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay”.
However, there was no news in regards to Academy-Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman having accepted or rejected the role. Now E! News is reporting that Philip Seymour Hoffman has accepted the role.
“The deal was made right before the Fourth of July holiday,” one source said.
Lionsgate does not comment on casting until something is official. An announcement about Hoffman is expected to be released any day now.
Please consider this as a rumour until we have received official confirmation from Lionsgate. If the deal is indeed sealed, an official press release from Lionsgate announcing Philip Seymour Hoffman has accepted the role of Plutarch Heavensbee should come very soon, hopefully within this week.
