In a pretty impressive turn of events its turns out Woody Harrelson has just landed the role of "Haymitch Abernathy" in Gary Ross‘s adaptation of Suzanne Collins dystopian best-selling novel, The Hunger Games. So its not John C. Reilly as we were led to believe. THR broke the news, also Lionsgate have announced that Jeremy Marinas and Dakota Hood have been cast as the District 10 Tributes, which now means its only the very central District 2 Tributes, "Cato" and "Clove" left to cast. Director Gary Ross said of the casting decision: "Haymich is such an unforgettable character: funny cranky outrageous, sarcastic, impatient, biting but ultimately kind. I'm so grateful we have Woody Harrelson to play him. I can't wait for us to get to work."
