There are a couple updates today concerning the casting of Finnick for Catching Fire. One piece of info is confirmed while the other is from a somewhat unreliable source.

First, The Los Angeles Times confirmed directly with Taylor Kitsch that he is most definitely not going to play Finnick.

Also today gossipy entertainment site Hollywood Life claimed that Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund were the final two being considered for the role. This, after E! Online reported earlier in the week it was down to Kitch, Hedlund, and Armie Hammer.

If Hollywood Life is to be believed, then Garrett Hedlund may have the role. But we’ve yet to hear from a credible source about Armie Hammer being out, and Zap2it says that many actors are still being considered.

So what to believe? Take everything with a grain of salt, and as always we’ll be keeping you updated.
