Haymitch Cast

So, what do you all think about this? Woody Harrelson being cast as Haymitch? I am a little surprised, seeing as how there was so much talk going on about John C. Reilly being cast. But I think he will probably do a great job. I originally thought that Tim Robins should have been cast, or that guy from Charmed that played Paige's dad. (Too lazy to look up his name, sorry).

Very sad, though, that NONE of my cast suggestions were taken to heart! (How rude! =) I guess there is still hope for Cinna and The Prez. I can't wait to see who is cast for those parts. Although I'm guessing Ian McKellen will be too busy filming THE HOBBIT to take the part of President Snow. He's better off where he is, though. I'm sure everyone will agree with that.

Looks like they have filled all or most of the Tributes, though. With one who our very own Mary Kole knows personally. (see bottom of that article) And I'm actually really excited about Stanley Tucci being cast as Caesar Flickerman. I have been a big fan of his ever since Pelican Breif. He is a terrific actor, very versatile.

What do you think? Now that this thing is mostly cast, are you happy with the choices? And who do you think will play the remaining roles?

John C Reilly would have been perfect! But I can see Woody doing a good job as a has-been athlete. They'll have to make sure he's got a potbelly, for one thing.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Woody Harrelson as an alcoholic mentor makes me want to see this movie. I'm always a bit on the fence about Hunger Games, but this guy (and Stanley Tucci, let's admit it) is definitely a deciding factor.

Stanley Tucci is quick becoming a favorite of mine. Definitely!
