Plutarch Watch 2012: Philip Seymour Hoffman {Nuff Said}

Philip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee, Head Gamemaker. I do not think I could be any more excited. Once again, Lionsgate® has truly done their homework and is working to get the best possible actors for these roles. 

So, even though I was plugging for Alec Baldwin in a half-serious, half-mocking way, I truly would love to see Hoffman in this role. I will also admit that I had never even considered him. He was one of the actors I thought could play Haymitch. But Plutarch? Never even entered my mind. But you know what? Neither had Josh Hutcherson for Peeta and look how well that worked out! 

Yes, Hoffman would be absolute perfection. He can pull off the snarkiness of Plutarch, and he can layer the charm. And he can totally pull off the "I just can't wait for the next war!" insanity of Plutarch. Plus, he's a phenomenal actor. Just watch him in "Capote", "The Talented Mr. Ripley", and "Moneyball". He's so versatile, so spot-on. Yes, I am very happy with this. Please, Philip, TAKE THE ROLE! 

What do you think?
 Could you see Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee? 

He's got the cocky smirk down.
"Heeeey Katniss...look at my fancy new watch!"

Or perhaps in a more serious, secretive tone.
"Pssst...This is my new watch. It starts at midnight..."
