  1. Haymitch has not let himself go nearly enough there. But that’s American casting for you. I swear, the American Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is going to be the Swedish movie, only without subtitles and geared toward people who don’t like to look at average forty-year-olds.

    1. That is one thing that I’ve noticed with American casting as well. When you compare American series with British series, for instance, you notice that the Brits aren’t afraid to cast average-looking people so long as they’re right for the part.
