Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee

Plutarch Heavensbee first appeared in Hunger Game but was highlighted in Catching Fire, replacing Seneca Cane as the new Game-maker. He remodeled the Arena where the Hunger Games commenced, to spice up the Quarter Quell, in celebration of the Game's 75th anniversary. He suggested the installation of force field around the arena to ensure that no victor will escape. But he held a secret identity. He was one of the heads of a secret rebellion organized by District 13, headed by President Alma Coin. He purposely replaced Cane and planted himself in the Games and inside the Capitol to create a diversion that would ensure the success of the secret mission.

The secret mission was to rescue Katniss Everdeen and get her out of the arena to bring her to 13 to become Mockingjay, the face of the rebellion. He was supported by several victors who were with Katniss in the arena. He put a glitch in the system that caused the destruction of the force field in at one location in the Arena. This made it possible for the hovercraft to break Katniss and the other victors out.

He also became a believer and motivator of Katniss as Mockingjay when Coin questioned her worth as face of the rebellion. He also helped Effie Trinket from her execution.

Famous Lines from the Hunger Games Trilogy

---- Catching Fire (2013) ----

"Now, Katniss, you have been our mission from the beginning. The plan was always to get you out. Half the tributes were in on it. This is the revolution, and you are the Mockingjay."

"I agree she should die, but in the right way, at the right time. It's moves and counter-moves, and it's all we gotta look at. Katniss Everdeen is a symbol. Their Mockingjay. They think she's one of them. We need to show that she's one of us. We don't need to destroy her, just the image, then we let the people do the rest."

"She's engaged. Make everything about that. What kind of dress is she gonna wear? – floggings. What's the cake gonna look like? - executions. Whose gonna be there? - fear. Blanket coverage. Shove it in their faces. Show them that she's one of us now."

"They're gonna hate her so much they just might kill her for ya."

"The more allies she betrays - the more friends she kills - the more she reveals her true self."

---- Mockingjay Part 1 (2014) ----

"Obviously, we need to make it personal. Remind her who the real enemy is."

"This is the only choice you have. People don't always show up the way you want them to, Madame President. But that anger, that anger-driven defiance, that's what we want. And we can redirect it. We need to unite these people out there that have been doing nothing but killing each other in an arena for years. We have to have a lightning rod. They'll follow her. She's the face of the revolution. Let her see it. Let her go home."

"That's it! That's her! Right there! Isn't that what I promised you? Now if she wears the costume, gunfire in the background, a hint of smok ... our Mockingjay. Madam President, we're losing ground because people are losing heart, this is worth the risk, she's worth the risk. Pardons, tribunals, power to the people, that can all be the bedrock for the new Panem, but with more time I think even the normal sub-causes can be bent a little bit, right?"

---- Mockingjay Part 2 (2015) ----

'It's so frustrating when she goes rogue."
