Philip Seymour Hoffman has signed up to appear in 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'.
The 'Capote' star was offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee in the 'Hunger Games' sequel last month and has now officially accepted the part.
Plutarch is the newly-appointed Head Gamemaker for the 75th Hunger Games, which sees current winners Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) take part in a special anniversary of the gruelling challenge as they compete against former winners from various districts - as opposed to new tributes - in a fight to the death.
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' will be released on November 22, 2013.
Philip was last seen appearing in 'Moneyball' and recently finished working on 'The Master'. His next project is Anton Corbijn's 'A Most Wanted Man'.
