Well, you don't put food on the table with Oscar movies and arthouse fare. We love Philip Seymour Hoffman, and he's great in "The Master" and deserving of his Oscar nomination this morning, but we totally understand why the dude wants to hang around in the districts. It's good pay, probably not as taxing as acting opposite Joaquin Phoenix and the wigs are glorious.

Well, you don't put food on the table with Oscar movies and arthouse fare. We love Philip Seymour Hoffman, and he's great in "The Master" and deserving of his Oscar nomination this morning, but we totally understand why the dude wants to hang around in the districts. It's good pay, probably not as taxing as acting opposite Joaquin Phoenix and the wigs are glorious.

Continuing yesterday's roll out of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" images, some more pics have landed for the hotly anticipated sequel, including our first look at Hoffman as the fantastically-named Plutarch Heavensbee. He's the new Gamemaker after Seneca Crane was executed after the events of "The Hunger Games," so sorry folks, no more Wes Bentley facial hair. The new snaps also reveal Woody Harrelson's drunken Haymitch, Donald Sutherland's scotchy President Snow and the Everdeen clan.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" will enter your district on November 22nd. [EW via FirstShowing]
