Phillip Seymour Hoffman On 'Heavensbee' Role In THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE

Phillip Seymour Hoffman talks about being cast as Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee in Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and shares his thoughts on the character and screenplay. [WARNING: MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD]

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Phillip Seymour Hoffman has shared his thoughts on being cast as 'Plutarch Heavensbee' in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. For those of you unfamiliar with the Suzanne Collins novels, the character is the Head Gamemaker in Catching Fire, taking the place of Seneca Crane after his execution in The Hunger Games (not seen in the big screen adaptation). However, there is a lot more to Heavensbee than meets the eye as Hoffman reveals below, so be warned that there are SPOILERS AHEAD.

"It's a great group of actors. It's a great environment. And the character was something I was attracted to. It was just an interesting role. He's somebody who's part of the revolution, but you don't know it. The idea that somebody would be risking themselves in such an extreme way to join something that's that dangerous because he thinks it's the future, that's interesting stuff, you know? I've read the script, which is true to the book. I kinda ruined it for myself. But I'm reading it anyway, because I really want to find out everything I need to know about this guy."
