perfect casting if true – i totally unintentionally imagined him the whole time as the character when i was reading.

# 2

@n: Same here!

# 3

amazing casting! he was so great in Cold Mountain

# 4

he’s the perfect fit for this role! i’m so glad they’re casting good actors over well known & over rated actors!

# 5

Sorry, I cannot imagine him as Plutarch Heavensbee. PSH is an AWESOME actor but my perfect Plutarch Heavensbee is an actor like Samuel L. Jackson, I mean a “tough guy” actor.

# 6

Good actor but I only liked the first book. CF was meh and Mockingjay was pure crap.

# 7

#5 PSH can play tough guys, he can play anything.

# 8

It is official. Our first official casting announcement and I think it’s perfect.

@Lia ESP: you cleearly haven’t read the book. they explain in the book that he’s a heavier older man.

I really hope this is true, he is so good at playing a tough guy. He’s so good in before the devil knows you’re dead.

He’s perfect for the role! The Hunger Games cast is just amazing. They really do get actors/actresses who can act well and play the part, instead of just using looks as a basis.
