SPOILER: Philip Seymour Hoffman To Join Cast Of 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire'
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the sequel to March's hit, The Hunger Games, based on the Suzanne Collins' series of novels, may be one of the most anticipated films of 2013, and now Moneyball and The Ides of March's Philip Seymour Hoffman has signed on to director Francis Lawrence's project as Plutarch Heavensbee, the Head Gamemaker of the 75th Hunger Games, after Seneca Crane (played by Wes Bentley) pays the ultimate price for the botched 74th Hunger Games that served as the plot of the first Hunger Games.
Production studio Lionsgate confirmed that Hoffman will join returning cast members Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket), Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy), Stanley Tucci (Caeser Flickerman), Toby Jones (Claudius Templesmith) and Donald Sutherland (President Snow), in Catching Fire on Monday.
It has also recently been revealed that Jena Malone (Saved!, Sucker Punch), will take the pivotal part of Johanna Mason in the new sequel. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is slated to hit theaters on November 22, 2013.
