SO AWESOME. Woody!I can't wait!!Angela @ The Bookshelf Muse
OMG Woody is PERFECT as Haymitch! Yay!!
Oh no, I don't see it!!! :( I always think of him as Woody from Cheers... I hope I'm pleasantly surprised when I see the film, but I was hoping for Hugh Laurie or Robert Downey Jr.
Man, I'd never have thought of Woody, but he's a great choice! @Kathryn, he tends to be a lot harder in film roles (even though Woody from Cheers is a fav) so I think he can bring the appropriate edge to Haymitch.
LOVE it. I think both of these guys will do an awesome job!
I am SO freaking excited for Woody Harrelson as Haymitch, AND Stanley Tucci as Ceaser! Ahh!@Kathryn--If you haven't, you might want to check out Zombieland. Woody Harrelson plays a character that reminds me v. much of Haymitch at times. I think Robert Downey Jr. is too entrenched as Iron Man at this point to pull off Haymitch.Now I want to know...who's going to be Cinna?!
Woody is PERFECT! I hadn't even thought of him, but he'd be awesome, especially after seeing him in Zombieland. And Stanley Tucci will be incredible, too.PS - I love that I learned this news from my own blog. You go, Frankie! Way to be efficient!
I love these two actors and think they will be great! I did picture Haymitch a lot fatter and uglier than Woody (though I'm not even sure I have any good basis for that because I don't think he is described that way...can't remember) but it's still an exciting line up :-)
I think both are perfect!!!!!!
I would never have thought of Woody as Haymitch, but I can definitely see it! I was hoping for Hugh Laurie - love him! - but I think Woody will be great!
Wow, I never would've thought about Woody as Haymitch. I agree with some other commenters, I was secretly hoping for Hugh Laurie, but I bet Woody will be excellent.Now forgive me, it's been a while since I read the HG books. Why can't I remember who Ceasar is? Off to Google...
I can't wait for this. I can so see Woody in that role.
Like Melissa, I pictured Haymitch as fatter. I totally never would have chosen Woody, but the more I think about his acting skills, the more I realize he could be excellent.And Stanley Tucci will be. That goes without saying.Thanks for the heads-up, Frankie.
Alright, alright. You got my attention.
