RUMOR: Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee?

Oh please let this one be true:

Phillip Seymour Hoffman may have already been offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee! This has been the first specific casting rumors to come to the party, so it looks like the casting rumor mill is in full swing.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was on the mind of a lot of Hunger Games fans when producers were looking for an actor to play the drunken but eventually endearing mentor Haymitch-- the part that eventually went to Woody Harrelson. But as it turns out, the crew behind the Hunger Games franchise weren't leaving out Hoffman-- they were just biding their time. According to Variety's Jeff Sneider, Hoffman has been offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire, the Hunger Games sequel that shoots this fall.

What do you guys think? Would you want Phillip Seymour Hoffman to play Plutarch Heavensbee?
