Hmm what about Dev Patel [from Slumdog Millionaire] as Peeta? And I think Bill Murray could pull off Haymitch.

Ellie said...

Love the shirts! I think that Dev Patel would be perfect for Peeta, and Brad Leland would be spectacular as Haymitch. As for Katniss, I'm still deciding.

I love the shirt! I think Max Thieriot or Alex Pettyfer would be a good choice for Peeta. They both are fair haired and can pull off the puppy dog face that I think Peeta would have.

I think Haymitch should be some crazy dude like Robert Downey Jr.!! As for Katniss, I think they should get a fresh face, someone new, tough and pretty.

Haymitch should be a bit off, crazy hair optional, maybe the likes of Robert Downey Jr. or Jack Black could pull it off.

Awesome contest :)

I'm a follower. bacarleton(at)gmail(dot)com

For Katniss - Physically I think Maiara Walsh could do it. Although, unsure of her acting skills.

Emma Watson or Anna Popplewell would be able to pull off both acting/looks. Anna is probably too voluptuous though. I'm thinking they (casting people) would probably be better off with someone unknown in the role though. :)

Allison said...

I haven't read them yet, but I have heard so many good things about the books so I'm really excited!

Sue said...

I vote Robert Downey Jr. or Bill Murray for Haymitch.

jpetroroy said...

I think Nick Nolte would be a fabulous Haymitch. The Hunger Games was my favorite book of the last year and I can't wait for the sequel.

Gary Oldman for Haymitch. He can pull off crazy characters and straight-up characters (he's Sirius in Harry Potter, villain Ivan Korshunov in Air Force One, and Commissioner Gordon from The Dark Knight). So he'd be a good choice for the different sides Haymitch, I think.

I would like to see Zac Efron as Haymitch. With a little makeup and a bottle of alcohol, I think it could work. It'd be both pathetic and hilarious. (Two thumbs up for that combo!)

I think Jason Dohring would make a good Peeta. Maybe I just love Jason Dohring and love Peeta - so them being one would be AWESOME!
Hmm... Katniss is a bit harder... Okay, I'm lame, but I think Kristin Bell (also from V.Mars) could pull off Katniss... can you tell I love V.Mars? :) I could watch both of them in anything! I totally would buy Jason Dohring as Peeta though!

regularrumination said...

AHHHHHH.

This is an amazing giveaway!!!!

Haymitch I think should be... John Goodman. He's such a good actor and he can play anyone, but I think his looks and some of the roles he's played previously would make him perrrrrfect.

regularrumination said...

+1 for the follow!

Janssen said...

I just reread Hunger Games with my husband and was SHOCKED to hear Peeta described as stocky! I always imagined him slender. Kind of Zac Efrony with blond hair. :)

I think that the idea of Robert Downey Jr as Haymitch is a good one -- I could see him as that character.

There is going to be a movie? Did you mean hypothetically? Say there will be a real movie!

Honestly, I'd rather that Katniss and Peeta be played by unknowns so that the book is what stands out, not the actors.
For Haymitch, I would love to see Gerard Butler. But I think I'd love him in the movie just because, well, he's pretty. I know. I'm a horrible person.

Andi said...

Yay! I absolutely cannot wait to read this book, so I'm really excited about your giveaway. I don't even want to look at my position in the library queue.

I think a good choice for Katniss would be someone very understated but with the potential to be beautiful. I'm thinking a young Reese Witherspoon or even Kristen what's-her-face from Twilight (but pre-Twilight). Someone nearly boyish and gruff. I'm having a hard time coming up with a young equivalent now, though. I feel so old. lol

I want to read The Hunger Games because it sounds like a thrilling new YA read and everyone says it's wonderful so it sounds worth a shot.

i see people are saying one of the characters should be played by Dev Patel. i haven't seen slumdog millionaire, but he was great in Skins so I'd just agree based on he's a good actor.

I haven't read The Hunger Games yet but I so want to! I've had it on my wishlist since it came out. I love dystopian future novels and not to mention it has a premise that sounds similar to Battle Royale which was totally awesome, so I have to read it! I can't start a series without reading the next book. So if I had the sequel it'll give that extra push to go out to the bookstore and buy it. Hehe.

I think Geoffrey Rush would be brilliant as Haymitch - I can't decide if he's too old, but I feel like he isn't. Geoffrey Rush, hooray!

Holly said...

What a great giveaway! I'm not sure I can hold off on buying Catching Fire now that it's available for purchase, but I might wait just a bit to see if I can win one and save a few bucks.

Dakota Fanning was the first to come to mind for playing Katniss. Maybe Kirsten Stewart from the Twilight movies....but people might be tired of her by then.

I think Bill Murray would be an awesome Haymitch!

I'm not terribly great at actors/actresses (don't see that many movies) but I thought Bill Murray or Jack Black as Haymitch would be perfect.

I also agree that someone new for Katniss would probably be better than someone already established.

Too bad my copy of Catching Fire won't be here for another three days! AH!!!

Also waiting for a copy from the library, but having fun posting for the contests! Plus the shirt is cool. I am thinking Nathan Filion is a great choice for Haymitch, but then saw the Bill Murray suggestion and that might be even better...

How exciting! I'll cast my vote for Michael Welch as Peeta -- I think that's a great choice! He has the sweet-but-strong thing going for him. I dig it.

I'm ashamed to say I haven't read Hunger Games yet. However, lol, do you really need to ask why I want to read it? The book's premise seems awesome (I love urban fantasy), and I've seen tons of rave reviews on it. A sequel means it can only get better! (:

I've been waiting since November for Catching Fire. To pass that time, I (and many others at hungergamestrilogy.com) have put a lot of thought into casting.

I have absolutely no idea on Katniss. Nobody seems to embody her to me. As far as Peeta, I'd love someone who looks like Alex Pettyfer did a few years ago (now he's starting to look a bit too old.)

Thanks for the oppertunity,

I think that the person who plays Katniss should be a new actress.

For Haymitch, I'd cast James Marsters (you know: Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer). He'd fit the approximate age range and I think he'd be perfect. Second choice: Benjamin Bratt?

Personally, I'm tired of Robert Downey Jr. playing drunk/crazy guys; it makes me wonder if he's high and I lose track of the story.

I haven't read Catching Fire yet, but I have seen this book popping up on a lot of blogs. Suzanne Collins must be a pretty good writer. So far, this summer (a little whine-fest here) the only books I've been able to get were books that I've won in contests. I've actually been a little lucky.
I'm interested in this book, and I think this is from a series, (am I right?, or thinking of another book)
The shirts look pretty cool, too.

Haymitch - Johnny Depp definitely!

Lena said...

Evan Rachel Wood should play Katniss! I can't wait to see who will really play her...

Heather Zundel said...

The only one I can think of is Summer Glau for Katniss. She could definitely pull off all the physical stuff required for it, and she is a fantastic actress.

I could totally see Nathan Fillion as Haymitch.

And Paul Bettany would be good in some role. He's too skinny for Haymitch in my opinion, and not right for Cinna, but someone...

Unknowns would really help this movie, if they were amazing. Great twist Lenore.

Never mind, just looked at Paul Bettany again and he could totally pull off Cinna (I know that wasn't one of the choices, but still). They would probably need to make him look a little bit younger though.

Hi! So LOVE these books. Anyway, down to business. Emily Browning for Katniss. Cameron Bright for Gale. And Alex Pettyfer for Peeta.

ST6153 said...

Also, I now follow your blog and I think the best pick for Haymitch would be Hugh Laurie from House. Perfect! And Shane West would make a great Cinna!

Jill said...

I think William Mosely from the Narnia movies would be a good Peeta.

I think Amanda Gallo would be perfect for Katniss with a bit of makeup to have olive skin, or Jodelle Ferland. For Peeta, maybe Sterling Knight or Alex Pettyfer.

I think that all of the teenage roles in the movie should be unknowns. Especially Katniss...

As for Haymitch, i have no idea! Robert Downey Jr actually isn't a half bad idea....

makena said...

Scratch that. Not Robert Downey Jr. Brendan Gleeson or Hugh Laurie would both make a fantastic Haymitch.

And i'm totally hoping for unknowns for Katniss, Peeta, and Gale.

I chose Hunger Games for my school's book club selection this month. I'd love to have a t-shirt to offer them as a doorprize!

I haven't read this series yet, but it sounds really suspenseful and full of action. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

I haven't started this series yet, but have been dying to. I really want to read this series because I have heard nothing but rave reviews regarding it.

I literally just finished catching fire like 5 min ago... I accidentally stumbled across this site and read some of the choices for actors and actresses for some of the characters... Most I thought were completely ridiculous no offense and hopefully none taken... But I did agree with some like that Alex Pettyfer as Peeta... I honestly have no idea who this guy is but I looked up his pic and agreed he'd definitely make a good looking Peeta I don't no if he'd be any good but apparently he is an actor so he must be.... As for haymitch i'd probably consider that one dude from house like that one chick posted before me.... I've only seen the show a couple of times but I can tell he'd be a decent haymitch.... And lastly for katniss I'd take the advice of previous commentators and get a fresh new face like someone said before pretty but tough... Personally I would rather have some unknown faces mixed with a couple familiar during this movie because I've felt the disappointment of a book being made into a movie and not that the actors didn't do a good job just that it kinda kills it when I know all the actors so fresh faces might make this movie less of a disappointment then others I've seen...

I think that Katniss should be played by Daniel Day Lewis. Peeta should be played by Kal Penn, and haymitch should be played by zac efron.

I have a really hard time casting Katniss or Peeta, but I can definitely see either Brendan Gleesan or Paul Giamatti as Haymitch.

When I read the books I always pictured William Moseley as Peeta. And Robert Downey Jr. would be great as Haymitch. As for Katniss, I have no idea...

I believe that Alex Pettyfer is the perfect Peeta. When you look at some of his pictures, there are ones that just jump out and say "I am the essence of Peeta!!!"

Chloe said...

Hmm.. Jack Black would be a hilarious Haymitch (saw that in someone else's comment) but I'm not sure that he could be serious when the occasion called for it. I'd love to see Dominic Scott Kay as Peeta, but he might be a little young. For Katniss... A fresh face! Whoever gets cast, I CANNOT WAIT for this movie!

I haven't read this yet but after many great reviews I went out and bought it. I can't wait to jump in to it.

I think Alex Pettyfer would be perfect for Peeta.

I think Amber Tamblyn should play Katniss in the movie. And what about Gale? Why does no one care about Gale? Steven Strait should play Gale. I know you didn't ask, but I love him <3

Thanks for the contest.

Hi! I'm a new follower, but I love love love HGT and was immediately drawn to your blog!

PEETA:
-William Moseley
-Alex Pettyfer
- But someone new would also be awesome!
KATNISS:
- Definitely someone new, and maybe someone who could be "transformed" into Katniss, because I think her personality is more important than casting her for her looks, because those can always be changed!

Haymitch:
-Hugh Laurie (!!)

Serena said...

for Katniss, I think Willa Holland could do it if she bulked up and gained some muscule, but I really can't picture any actresses out there as Katniss. and I think Gerard butler would be a good drunk Haymitch :)

I've been loving Alec Baldwin as Haymitch for forever!
