Beetee is said to be an older man with glasses. "Older" is open to interpretation, of course, but even while reading the book for the first time, I had the same thought: Kevin Spacey.

Now I realize this probably won't happen. I mean, he's Kevin Spacey. But a girl can dream, right? He just seems so perfect. Can't you just picture Kevin Spacey with some glasses freaking out over a spool of wire? I can.
Wiress is described as looking to be around the same age as Katniss's mother, so I'm going to say she's around 40. She tends not to finish her sentences, although Beetee sometimes finishes them for her. I think Ally Sheedy would be great in this role. Yeah, she's a little older than the part calls for (but aren't pretty much all actors anyway? That's the magic of Hollywood, after all), but she can play a wide range of emotions, and crazy is one she's very good at.
Tomorrow, I discuss District 4, which I have really been looking forward to...I'm so excited to put a face to Finnick Odair!!!
