Haymitch is Cast for The Hunger Games!!

 Well, I know that most of the blogging/twitter world has already heard this news, but this is for all my friends who find out Hunger Games news from my blog :D 

According to EW Woody Harrelson is going to be Haymitch.  I tried to find the most Haymitch-ish picture to post for him because I'm having a hard time seeing him in the role.  I mean he can definitely play a drunk, but I guess I see Haymitch as older and more.....crotchety?  Or something.  I think this is like almost every other person they've picked, it's not who I would choose, but it might work.

And in case you missed it earlier, they also picked Caesar Flickerman, the host of The Hunger Games.  (The one who talks to all the contestants and has such a good re pore with Peeta.)  Stanley Tucci will be playing this part, and I think he may be my favorite pick so far.  He seems perfect to me!  (Thanks, Leah, for the heads up on that one).

If you missed some of the other cast names, you can check them out here.


  1. I'm really happy with both of these choices!

  2. Stanely is PERFECT! Not sure how I feel about Haymitch. Hmm...they've made some strange picks for this movie IMHO Can't wait to see how it all works out :)

  3. I love Woody so I'm sooo super excited for this! I always thought of Haymitch and broken down so much that he SEEMED older. If that makes sense? I think Woody will be PERFECT! I'm geeked for this!

  4. I agree, Tucci is absolutely perfect and I had my qualms with Harrelson, but now I think he can pull off Haymitch.

  5. I adore Stanely Tucci. I am so excited for him to have that role.

  6. I love Stanley Tucci! He's so funny! :)
