Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay

Hey everyone. So as you may or may not know, the role of Plutarch Heavensbee, head gamemaker of the games (Quarter Quell) will be played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Plutarch has no particular role in the first file, The Hunger Games, but you may remember him (if you read the books) as the man who falls over the punch bowl  as Katniss shoots her arrow to the apple in the pigs mouth? Yup, that's the man and he is making a very important appearance in the second and third movie.

In other important Hunger Games news, I hear that the third movie, Mockingjay, will in fact be cut into two movies, just as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2 and Breaking Dawn: Part 1 and Part 2. The book is very important in the series, and had much information and so much going on that just like in DH and BD it will be split in two. 

If this is in fact true, then I honestly feel like it is the best thing to do. Harry Potter and Breaking Dawn both were big books with so much information that everyone involved came to the same conclusion that cutting them in half would be the best decision. So, I think it is a good idea for Mockingjay to be cut in half. What do you all think? Let me know. -J
