Haymitch Rumors?

Rumors are circulating about John C. Reilly playing Haymitch in The Hunger Games movie. Although he was never anyone whose name I heard come up, I really like this pick and I think he would be great! I hope these rumors come true!! What do you think?

In other Hunger Games news, Paula Malcomson has been cast as Mrs. Everdeen. I think she looks like Jennifer Lawrence and I love when fake families in movies look like real families! (Maybe that's weird, but it's kind of a big deal to me-I hate when they don't really look like a family-anyone else??)


  1. Hmm. This is one casting choice that I'm not 100% sure about. I can't really envision him as someone whom would have been able to win The Hunger Games back in his day. I guess I unfortunately see him too much as the funny man.

  2. LOVE John C. Reilly! I think he can definitely pull off Haymitch! Underneath all that silliness is someone ruthless who won the Hunger Games. Can't wait to see the rest of the choices! ;-)

  3. I really kind of like it. I think he's a great character actor and he can be funny but serious. And I think he can pull of Haymitch as crazy but caring.

  4. Paula Malcomson was on an episode of Fringe not to long ago & she did a really good job. I am happy with her!

    I know John C Reilly can do more than comedy but when an actor plays an idiot so many times it is hard to picture him as anything else. To me Haymitch is the real hero of the series so I am unsure.

  5. Hmmm, it could probably work but I can see where it would be hard for some people to picture it. From the very beginning I always pictured a very scruffy Hugh Jackman....

  6. Hmmm... I wouldn't have pictured John C. Reilly, but I supposed he could do it. In fact, the type of person I imagined when I was reading the Hunger Games was someone like Nick Nolte.

    I know some people were hoping for Robert Downy Jr. but just because he struggled with his own substance abuse doesn't automatically make him perfect for the role which is why I think people were hoping for him.

    Then again, Nick Nolte's own drunken mug shot is what made me think he'd make a good Haymitch so I guess I'm one to talk, right?

  7. I also love John C. Reilly so yay!

  8. I never would have come up with John. C. Reilly on my own, but now that it's been tossed about, I think it's a great choice and I hope they do it! :D

  9. I think John. C. Reilly might be a good choice, I really like him :) Thanks for sharing the news.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?

Tween Tuesday: Drizzle by Kathleen Van Cleve

Rating: 2.5/5 Stars Genre: Magical Realism Release Date: 3/4/2010 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Polly Peabody lives on a magical farm. They grow chocolate rhubarb, it rains every Monday at exactly 1:00, and her best friend is a plant named Harry. When the rain stops, Polly's brother falls ill, and her aunt wants to sell the farm, Polly must figure out a way to save her beloved home. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Drizzle is on our state book list and one of our Chat & Chew book club picks. The kids reviews were mixed on this one and sadly, it was my least favorite of all the books we read for Chat & Chew. The kids that liked it said it had action, but for me the plot was slow and dragged too much. The book could have been edited down and I lost interest in the story. I liked the magical farm that Polly lived on, but the magic wasn't enough to hold my interest. I felt like the plot went around in circles too much and never got going. The ending was also a bit
