– We’ll continue our Catching Fire casting series by talking all about District 3 victors Beetee and Wiress. We’ll discuss the qualities our future Nuts and Volts need to possess and also talk about fan favorites like Michael Emerson. And, of course, we’ll share some of OUR top picks for the roles! Leave a comment here and let us know who you want to play Beetee and/or Wiress and why, and we might share your thoughts on the air!
– We’ll do a round of Pick a Page and discuss a randomly selected page from Catching Fire. Get those books ready!
– To conclude, we’ll explore a couple of Beetee and Wiress-related Crackpot Theories: Were Beetee and Wiress in a romantic relationship? Did Beetee have something to do with Katniss and Peeta’s chariot costumes in The Hunger Games?
“Beetee is still messing around the tree, doing I don’t know what, taking measurements and such. At one point he snaps off a sliver of bark, joins us, and throws it against the force field. It bounces back and lands on the ground, glowing. In a few moments it returns to its original color. ‘Well, that explains a lot,’ says Beetee. I look at Peeta and can’t help biting my lip to keep from laughing since it explains absolutely nothing to anyone but Beetee.”
“‘Tick, tock,’ whispers Wiress. I guide her in front of me and get her to lie down, stroking her arm to soothe her. She drifts off, stirring restlessly, occasionally sighing out her phrase. ‘Tick, tock.’ ‘Tick, tock,’ I agree softly. ‘It’s time for bed. Tick, tock. Go to sleep.'”
