Access Hollywood posted an excerpt from their interview with Josh Hutcherson at the Teen Choice Awards. While earlier we had posted the video where Josh talked about Jena Malone and the series in general, here he also mentions Amanda Plummer and Philip Seymour Hoffman:
“I’m super excited. I think that Jena Malone is fantastic,” he said of the actress playing Johanna Mason – which Lionsgate officially confirmed on Monday.
He also called Amanda Plummer, who plays tribute Wiress, “fantastic.”
But Josh’s highest praise was for the actor whose onscreen job is trying his hardest to kill Peeta and Katniss.
“Oh my God, Philip Seymour Hoffman. He’s like one of my favorite actors ever,” he said of the star, who has been cast as Plutarch Heavensbee, the Head Gamemaker in the sequel to “The Hunger Games.”
“Everything he does, he’s just the most epic guy!” Josh continued. “So, I’m like, ‘You’re doing our movie?’ I was blown away when I heard about him.”
