Telegraph has post a new interview with Phillip Seymour Hoffman a.k.a Plutarch Heavensbee in THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE.
Here’s the excerpt:
Next for Hoffman is a role in a film series which itself has a cult-like following. He will play the rebel leader Plutarch Heavensbee in TheHunger Games: Catching Fire, the second film in a franchise Hoffman admits he thought would be “crap” until he saw the first instalment, which was released to unexpected critical acclaim earlier this year.
“I was incredibly pessimistic, but then I read the books, and it was like, ‘pow’,” he enthuses. “I didn’t even know The Hunger Games was a big deal, but I’m incredibly impressed with it.
“My son is about to turn 10, so I bought him the books and I’m going to read them with him, if for no other reason than it’s the first time I’ve made a film that’s suitable for him.”
