'Hunger Games' Stars React to Philip Seymour Hoffman's Death

Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s shocking death comes right in the middle of filming for his upcoming movies The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2.

The 46-year-old actor played the role of Plutarch Heavensbee, the new Head Gamemaker in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire who [SPOILER ALERT] is really working as the leader of the rebellion against the Capitol. His character’s role grows in the next two films while leading the rebellion. We will have to wait and see how the studio proceeds with the movie.

“PSH – I am genuinely shocked, saddened and speechless. A truly wonderful man, with a magical touch. My hero. Thoughts are with his family,” Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick Odair, tweeted.
