I Cast Catching Fire - District 11

District 11, the agriculture district, sends Chaff and Seeder to the Quarter Quell.

Chaff is a good friend of Haymitch's, and, like Haymitch, enjoys the drink.  He's about six feet tall, dark-skinned and has a stump from where he lost his hand in his Games thirty years ago.  The first person to come to mind for me was Michael Clarke Duncan.  He's a little older than Chaff would be, but I think he looks to be around the proper age.

He's very good in dramatic roles and seems the like the genial kind of guy people enjoy being around.  Can't you just picture him and Woody Harrelson sitting around drinking and telling awful jokes?

As for Seeder, she's said to be around sixty.  Katniss thinks she could almost be from the Seam, with her olive skin and dark hair, except her eyes are brown.  She's a very warm, friendly person.  I thought about it  for awhile, and tossed around a few ideas (Sigourney Weaver came to mind), but ultimately I decided on Sissy Spacek.

I can't really explain it, but I just think Sissy Spacek when I think Seeder.  After she popped into my head, I couldn't get her out (it doesn't hurt that she's a great actress).

What do you think?  Let me know!
