What do characters Haymitch Abernathy and Plutarch Heavensbee have in common, besides their involvement in the Hunger Games?

Their real-life personas share a birthday!

Happy birthday to Woody Harrelson and Philip Seymour Hoffman, who respectively turn 51 and 45 today!

Philip recently joined the Hunger Games family as the new Head Gamemaker for the highly anticipated sequel, Catching Fire, set to be released Nov. 22, 2013.

The Moneyball actor was most recently seen on Broadway with The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield in the popular revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman.

Woody, too, has kept himself busy between shooting the first Hunger Games and its sequel, working on films Seven Psychopaths, Now You See Me and Dust to Dust, which will all be released either by the end of the calendar year or in 2013.

So what do these gallant guys have planned for the evening?

We can only imagine that if Haymitch were in charge, the joint birthday celebration would include an abundance of alcohol and girls with bows and arrows…
