The Hunger Games Movie News: Haymitch Casting Announcement

The official casting announcement for Haymitch came right when Blogger had it's day long vacation, so this is most definitely late! Still fantastic news, though!!


Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Katniss and Peeta's mentor.


Alexander Ludwig as Cato, and Isabelle Fuhrman as Clove, District 2 Tributes. The last of the Tributes have been cast now!

Harrelson as Haymitch is brilliant, in my opinion. He has that mix of humour and bitterness that just fits. I know there were a lot of rumours about John C. Reilly playing the part, but I admit I'm happy that's not true. In my mind, Reilly is too humourous.

I'm also excited to see Ludwig take on Cato, a much darker role than I've seen him in before.

It's all coming together!!


  1. @:: Lavender's Green :: Acting-wise, he's totally Haymitch. I'm interested to see how they'll have him look. He's gonna be brilliant though. I can't believe how quickly it all came together!

    Now when you read the books you'll be comparing characters to their actors, huh?

  2. never heard of any of them before.

    1. Not even Woody Harrelson? You'll be in for a treat then, if you're planning to see the movie! :-D
