Panem is without its most famous drunk — for now. Though production began Monday in Atlanta on the highly anticipated "Hunger Games" follow-up "Catching Fire," actor Woody Harrelson (who portrays oft-tipsy Haymitch Abernathy) was instead in Canada supporting his upcoming release "Seven Psychopaths" at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The actor, who said he was days away from flying to Georgia to film the dystopian drama, spoke with MTV News' Josh Horowitz about how his portrayal of the District 12 mentor could change under new director Francis Lawrence's vision and how he prepped for the sequel.

For over 25 years, Woody Harrelson has entertained us with a wide array of characters ranging from psychopaths to lovable losers. This year alone we've seen him in two very different parts: a wickedly corrupt L.A. cop in "Rampart" and a Republican party strategist in "Game Change."
