John C Reilly is Out at Haymitch-so Who's In?

According to E! News, John C Reilly will not be playing the role of Haymitch in The Hunger Games movie. This means the role is still wide open, so who are you hoping is still in the running?

Also, there have been a ton of Tributes cast, so check out the Facebook page for all the photos!

  1. I think Hugh Laurie would be awesome as Haymitch

  2. I agree with yabooknerd, but I also think that Robert Downey Jr. would play the role of a middle-aged alcoholic who once won the Hunger Games perfectly!

  3. Dern, interesting. I was beginning to like the idea of him. Hm, yes, Hugh Laurie would be good! Ha, Robert Downy Jr would be awesome too. I do think this role needs to be a big name. Everyone else who are not huge starts are great- I'd prefer that. But I always thought Haymitch should be the big ticket guy.

  4. I like Laurie and RDJ, but after hearing John C. Reilly come up . . . I didn't think anyone else could or should do it.

    I am also not entirely sure how there schedules work out, but Robert Downey, Jr. is currently filming The Avengers. And isn't Hugh Laurie on a TV show? I know there is a hiatus.

    The other news, that is in the E! story is that Woody Harrelson is who they believe will get the part. Some news last week reported Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, and Lenny Kravitz had been offered roles.

    If John C. Reilly can't do it, Harrelson is actually a great second choice. He has proven he can act, and Haymitch is kinda like his character in Zombieland. Any of the three (Woody, Hugh, or RDJ) bring real acting talent to the role. Kudos to the producers, etc. for that!

  7. I had originally wished for Robert Downey Jr. I just love his acting and thought he'd be perfect. When I heard Reilly may get the part, I instantly thought he'd be perfect! What a let down. I wonder why - scheduling?

    I had heard that rumour about Tucci and I hope he gets a part! Such fun to watch all this unfold.

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
