Looks like Catching Fire is heating up: Philip Seymour Hoffman has just been cast as Plutarch Heavensbee in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins's bestselling novel.
Heavensbee, who replaces Seneca Crane as the new Head Gamemaker in the second installment of the Hunger Games trilogy, is a pretty complicated guy. After all, you never really know whether he's friend or foe until the very end of the book.
But complex roles are nothing new for the Oscar winner, 44, as shown by The Ides of March, Moneyball and Capote (for which he was named Best Actor).

There's a new Head Gamemaker in town.
Director Francis Lawrence reportedly has been tapped to helm Catching Fire, the sequel to reigning box-office blockbuster The Hunger Games.
Lawrence, who last directed Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon in 2011's Water for Elephants, won the job after Games director Gary Ross dropped out, citing time constraints due to the sequel's "fixed and tight production schedule."
