In Suzanne Collins' "Catching Fire," Heavensbee is announced as the new Hunger Games Head Gamemaker, replacing Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley). As you might guess from the addition of an Oscar-winning actor in the role, Plutarch Heavensbee is not unimportant.
Last week, Jena Malone
was offered one of the other plum "Catching Fire" roles, playing tribute Johanna Mason.
A recent Tony nominee for "Death of a Salesman," Hoffman won his Oscar for "Capote" and earned subsequent nominations for "Charlie Wilson's War" and "Doubt."
The first "Hunger Games" film took in over $400 million at the domestic box office and $678 million worldwide.
