Yesterday a report from E! Online stated that Lionsgate had narrowed down the pool of Finnick candidates to three for Catching Fire.

Now, Zap2it is chiming in with a bit more interesting information.

Not only do they hear that the role is still open to people outside of Taylor Kitsch, Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund, but we also know what scenes they’re reading for producers exactly:

Actors are still reading for the role, and the studio is strongly considering bringing in an unknown to avoid ego clashes on set. It’s easy to understand the mix-up — someone probably got their hands on the confidential memo going around that reveals the three men are currently on the shortlist of dudes we’d love to marry in a fantasy dream world. (Honestly, any list with those three guys on it is a win-win-win situation.)

The scenes the actors are reportedly reading for the role include the sugar cube scene where Finnick first meets Katniss and the scene where he hears Annie’s scream.

As always, we’ll continue to keep you updated on any developments! Given that the role is still in the reading phase of auditions, we suspect it’ll be at least another couple weeks before an announcement is made.

Vote in our poll to tell us which of the three named actors up for the role should play Finnick!

    That’s reassuring to hear. And I like the parts they have to read. It’s good to see if the actor can portray all of the sides of Finnick. He’s very different in both parts so this will give them a better idea with who could play Finnkick the best.

         I would love an unknown. In my opinions, lots of successful films had unknowns in them. Also, the three guys in the picture look too old to me. I know Finnick is a heart-throb, but he’s also 24, just a few years out of college. Those guys all appear to be late 20′s early 30′s.

    I don’t think the pictures Hypable chose for these guys really show them to their best advantage…

  • Musician

    I mean, I don’t think the pictures that Zap2it used and Hypable recycled really show these guys to their best advantage…

     For me, Garrett would be the perfect Finnick! However, I do trust the casting people for the series. I thought everyone in the first movie was perfect! So whoever they choose will be good enough for me.

  • aschech626

    if it is someone unknown Joey Graceffa should get the part

    Zac Efron…. nuf said<3

    There’s still hope for Jesse Williams!

    Though I’d be okay with a complete unknown.

    • Amanda Worden

      Jesse Williams!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    #pattinson as finnick.
    The fan outrage will be so funny

    If you want an unknown then Benjamin Stone is your guy!

      He’s not really unknown if we know him…

  • cynthiacaridad

    Out of these three, I’m rooting for Garrett Hedlund. But, I would be perfectly happy with an unknown as well. I know whoever they pick will be perfect. (example shown in all actors played in HG)

  • Dreamer

    those two scenes are prefect for them to be reading! out of the three lead runners so far I’m going for someone who’s not Taylor Kitsch.

  • 7Starrchasers

    Taylor is a no no…he’s been box office bad luck lately.

  • Lexi32

    I still think that Grant Gustin would be a great choice.  There were even rumours that he was up for the role.  Unfortunately, I’m almost positive that’s all they were: just rumours.

  • Mallmadness17

    i honestly think the best choice (or at least one that should be majorly considered) is Chris Zylka. He played the bad boy type in ’10 things i hate about you’. then he was cast as Jake in the Secret Circle where he played a villainous traitor turned ally with a possible hidden agenda. His acting skills are unquestionable and believe me when i say he looks the part.

    garret hedlund :))

  • Star

    I hope that they’re ignoring all of us fans who are freaking out about fancasting.  They need to focus on instead finding someone who can be charming, funny, and heartbreaking and who will have great chemistry with JLaw, The Hutch, and other new cast members.

    …I have no idea who these people are!

  • April

    FREAKING HUNTER PARRISH (aka Silas from Weeds) He’s my dream casting for Finnick.

  • Anna-FilmGirl

    Armie Hammer really is exactly how I imagined Finnick, and a great actor too. I hope they cast him.

    this makes more sense… but still, clock is ticking, guys!! (pun intended)

  • pygmypuff22

    I’m glad those are the scenes they’re using. They’ll get to see how the actors do with more than just one side of Finnick.

  • Elle

    Two very good scenes!! It shows the two side of Finnick, the playful victor that had Katniss wary at first.
    And the caring man who Annie fell in love with.

  • Thesmileyone97

    I really wanted Grant Gustin to play Finnick, he’s almost excatly how I imagined Finnick!
