Philip Seymour Hoffman, who plays Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is featured on WSJ’s Speakeasy. He praised Suzanne Collins for writing the series, and he also talked about his role in the Hunger Games sequel.
Hoffman said since his role in the “Catching Fire” book isn’t very big — Plutarch Heavensbee takes over from Seneca Crane as Head Gamekeeper. But the film’s writers added more to his character. Then when he films “Mockingjay,” everything changes.
“I’m looking forward to the next two [films], because his job becomes very different,” Hoffman said of Plutarch’s role. “The story becomes very different and everyone will see what happens.”
