Well, not officially. The rumor, according to E! Online, is that Philip Seymour Hoffman has already been signed on to play Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire.
Sources tell E! News exclusively that the Oscar winner has signed on to play Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire, the much anticipated second movie in the Hunger Games trilogy.
"The deal was made right before the Fourth of July holiday," one source said.
Lionsgate does not comment on casting until something is official. An announcement about Hoffman is expected to be released any day now.
The Hollywood Reporter reported that Hoffman, 44, was offered the role on June 11.
Let's just see how this plays out, guys. Remember, nothing is official until Lionsgate announces casting!!
Thanks so much for @THG4all for the tip!
