    i dont think this is the best choice for plutarch…I imagined him tall, muscular, and slightly formal. In other words i think that the casting director should hold auditions with suzanne collins so they can collaborate on who should play the role.(s)

    Yay! I always imagined Plutarch looking very very different, but the way he looked was never really described in detail. I’m excited though: I don’t know this actor, but I think he’ll be great as Plutarch (: Can’t wait!
