My mental Haymitch - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
My mental Haymitch
Every now and then, I think about actors I'd like to see. Since the movies have already passed any point where we'd see a young Haymitch, I guess the field is open.

Anyway, I like Dylan Schmid from Once Upon A Time as teen!Haymitch... he's not exactly my mental version (because my imagination does not actually have a body to perform scenes for me), but he's pretty darned close. What do you think? (And yes, as beceh points out, he's younger than he would be in the stories!)

(I couldn't resist putting in a bread-sharing scene...;p)

Yep, pretty close to how I was imagining him! He looks a bit older in my head though.

Yeah, he's thirteen-ish here, so this would definitely be the pre-Games version! But this is still about the closest I've seen. And something about the irritated eyeroll at the beginning when he realizes he can't eat the apple core just kind of screamed "Haymitch" at me.

I like the

fan-made video of the second quarter quell. Also does Maysilee very nicely

Re: I like the

Oh, yeah, I've seen that. Love it. Maysilee is good and the performance on Haymitch is good, but this kid looks more like Haymitch to me.

omg he looks So much like haymitch!!! it's so weird.

but now I'm actually curious- do you have a different older!Haymitch as mental older!haymitch or is it woody harrelson with black hair?

and I'm also curious to know if you have any other actors in mind? for Gia? or mirren,etc?

I have very clear pictures in my head of Gia and Mir, but I haven't seen actors that match them. Gia is sort of Amy Adams-esque, I guess, but it's a less perfect match than this one. She'd be on the casting short-list, though.

My older Haymitch is more an older Dylan Schmid than a younger Woody Harrelson (though WH's voice will always be Haymitch's for me... I am so fickle).

Mir may be closest to the woman who played Chris in the first Carrie film (Nancy Allen, circa 1976), though with less 70s-licious hair!
