More squabbling about the casting of The Hunger Games...

...over at EW. (Well, the squabbling is in the comments.)

Hugh Laurie as Haymitch?? I get it, I really do¹, but NO. I'd like a cast of mostly unknowns, please, with the adults played by lesser-known character actors -- actors who aren't, like, IMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZABLE.  I mean... Robert Downey, Jr.!? I want to see Haymitch and think he's Haymitch, not an actor playing him. Do you know what I mean?

Well, at least KStew wasn't on the list.


¹Besides the similarities between House and Haymitch, the guy's got talent coming out of his ears.
