Wes Bentley is ready for his comeback. After a promising debut in American Beauty, Bentley fell into drugs and bad roles, but with his act cleaned up, he's joined the high-profile cast of The Hunger Games in a pivotal role: Seneca Crane, the man who devises the titular games. Meanwhile, Woody Harrelson — who had once been rumored to play Seneca — is now thought to be the front-runner for Haymitch, a role for which Vulture heard John C. Reilly was also being considered.
