Philip Seymour Hoffman cast in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The casting of Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) answers the question of who will play Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee in the Francis Lawrence directed film.
On the role of Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee:
Heavensbee is more or less the same character Wes Bentley played in The Hunger Games, as he’s the character who is control of the day to day of the 75th Hunger Games. That’s the games the year after Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) shared victory and the fact that the Games are even part of the film should give a pretty decent idea of where the movie goes.
How Plutarch fits into the sequel and where the sequel picks up:
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
