INTERVIEW: Philip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch) is "incredibly impressed" with The Hunger Games

In a new interview with The Telegraph at the Venice Film Festival, Our Plutarch Philip Seymour Hoffman talks about being impressed with The Hunger Games.
Next for Hoffman is a role in a film series which itself has a cult-like following. He will play the rebel leader Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second film in a franchise Hoffman admits he thought would be “crap” until he saw the first installment, which was released to unexpected critical acclaim earlier this year.  
“I was incredibly pessimistic, but then I read the books, and it was like, ‘pow’,” he enthuses. “I didn't even know The Hunger Games was a big deal, but I’m incredibly impressed with it. 
“My son is about to turn 10, so I bought him the books and I’m going to read them with him, if for no other reason than it’s the first time I've made a film that’s suitable for him.”
