Actual GOOD Casting News

There has been a lot of news lately about casting for The Hunger Games’ Catching Fire and honestly I just don’t think they’ve been very good. However today news has broke about two people people cast, one in for Catching Fire and one for (drum roll please)…the lead role for an Assassin’s Creed adaptation. A role that had rumors of god awful actors being pursued, but now it seems they’ve come to their senses and realized that this could be a very memorable character and role and not just another action flick.

  • Altair, the main assassin played as in the first game, will be played by Michael Fassbender. The Prometheus android himself will lend his talents to this series. No word if he has signed on for multiple movies or not and they really don’t need to because really they could have a different actor for each film. Very good news though.
  • For Catching Fire they have found their Plutarch Heavensbee, the Gamemaker after Seneca Crane was killed after the the 1st book, in Phillip Seymour Hoffman. How could you be mad about any role this guy gets? He’s awesome. You saw Almost Famous yes? Good then don’t even try to say he wouldn’t be great for it.
