Esprit Joins, Hoffman Talks “Catching Fire”

Patrick St. Esprit (“Sons of Anarchy”) is set to play Romulus Thread in Francis Lawrence’s much anticipated sequel “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” at Lionsgate. Ready to enforce the Capitol’s law under any circumstance, Thread is the Head Peacekeeper of District 12.

Meanwhile the previously cast Phillip Seymour Hoffman recently spoke with EW about his role as Plutarch Heavensbee in ‘Fire’ and in the process gives away a minor spoiler.

“it’s a great group of actors. it’s a great environment. And the character was something I was attracted to. It was just an interesting role. He’s somebody who’s part of the revolution, but you don’t know it. The idea that somebody would be risking themselves in such an extreme way to join something that’s that dangerous because he thinks it’s the future… that’s interesting stuff, you know?” says Hoffman.
