Philip Seymour Hoffman won an Academy Award for Best Actor in 2005, for his leading role in the movie Capote. While is true that he’s been offered the role, it remains to be seen whether he’ll accept it or not.
At the very least, it is refreshing to have some casting rumors outside the casting of Finnick Odair, isn’t it? But tell us what do you think! Can you see Hoffman as Plutarch?
