We have a director, so now the question is who will play some of our favorite Catching Fire characters? Well E! Online decided to do some fantasy casting and they have some interesting choices.
He’s the 50-ish black-haired techno-genius with a penchant for things that go zap in the night arena.
People out there like: Michael Emerson, Steve Buscemi
But what about: Andy Serkis? Think about it. You know I’m right.
Dark horse contender: Doug Jones. You’ve seen him act, I am sure of it, albeit probably under a ton of makeup, in films like Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy. But look at the face and notice a certain wonky inspiration that could make for a surprisingly sympathetic Beetee.
Or there’s always: John Malkovich.
Beetee’s constant companion who nurses a fried brain, thanks to her previous arena experiences. She tends to be shy and easily distracted — personality traits that, of course, belie a keen intelligence.
People out there like: Helena Bonham Carter, Tilda Swinton
But what about: Frances McDormand? Think about it. You know I’m right.
Dark horse contender: Joan Allen. She’s a tall, strong drink of water, but her almost elven features could channel The Crazy pretty well, I suspect.
Or there’s always: Winona Ryder or Uma Thurman
Poor Mags, all old and back in the arena and everything. She’s supposed to be 80 and kind of addled. But if you need a fish hook, she’s your gal.
People out there like: Betty White, Cloris Leachman
But what about: Maggie Smith? Come on. You know I’m right.
Dark horse contender: Sissy Spacek. At 62, she’s technically way too young, but something about her feels right.
Or there’s always: Meryl Streep, with the right makeup
This mysterious man of unknown age takes over as Head Gamemaker, but he has a hidden agenda that makes him much more interesting than Seneca Crane ever was.
People out there like: Jared Harris, Philip Seymour Hoffman
But what about: Just about anybody? It’s not like we know much about the guy’s physical appearance. Come on. You know I’m right.
Dark horse contender: That really shifty guy from Game of Thrones. Seriously, I could watch that guy for hours.
Or there’s always: Anybody! I mean it! Denzel! The Cloon! Kenneth Branagh!
