Tumblr and various other parts of the internet were abuzz with word this morning that Daniel Newman was cast as Finnick in The Hunger Games sequel in Catching Fire.
We reached out to Lionsgate, who confirmed to us that this is not true. Catching Fire has not been cast yet.
The rumor started after Newman’s name was listed as playing Finnick on IMDb. The truth is, anyone can submit information – accurate or not – to the site.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on any and all casting information concerning the sequel in the coming months.
Had Newman been cast, would you have liked the decision?
