John C. Reilly Asked To Not Make Us Laugh In ‘The Hunger Games’?
John C. Reilly wouldn't be my first choice to play a character that is capable of winning anything, but things make a little more sense when I learned that Haymitch Abernathy is now the alcoholic mentor of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). That clears things up nicely.
Expect more roles with ridiculous names to be cast in the near future. (Vulture)
