When “The Hunger Games” meets “Office Space”

I’ll admit there are some strange mash-ups going on in my head during this “Mad Men”/”Hunger Games” week; like, for example, I’m wondering who would win if the staff of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce had to fight to the death in a televised event. (Actually, that’s easy. Joan. Unless Pete decided to do something really sneaky and cheat.) But I can’t entirely explain why, in writing my review of “The Hunger Games” yesterday (short answer: yes, it’s very good, and very faithful), I initially wrote “Gary Cole” instead of “Gary Ross” as the director’s name. (I watched a fair bit of “Office Space” the other day on cable; it must have stuck with me.) Luckily I caught the mistake long before it ever saw print or web, but it intrigued me, and I started imagining Bill Lumbergh as master of ceremonies for the Hunger Games: “Umm, why don’t you all go ahead and . . . kill each other, mmmm’kay?”
