Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has accepted the role of Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, according to E! News.
Sources tell E! that the deal — which was first offered on June 11, according to The Hollywood Reporter — was officially done right before the July 4 holiday.
Lionsgate has yet to confirm the casting, though reports say it will be officially announced “any day now.”
For those who aren’t up to date on all-things Hunger Games, Plutarch Hevansbee is the Head Gamemaker in part II of the popular trilogy from author Suzanne Collins, the same position held by Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) in the first saga.
