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.

    Garrett looks a lot like the Finnick in my head, so I’m excited aout him. And, I’ve gotta say, I’m loving all the gossip and back and forth about this :)

    I still think Zac Efron is going to play Finnick Odair!

    Thanks so much, Hypable! I can always count on you for reliable up-to-date news. :)

         The reason why I am skeptical of this is because one report says that Kitsch is definitely out and the other says he is still a front-runner. None the less, I appreciate the gossip, I love casting hype! I’m anxiously awaiting the decision though.

    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.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Armie Hammer is Finnick… Please:)

    Will someone please tell me what the Finnick is going on?!

    I am excited by the idea of Garrett Hedlund playing Finnick, he was great in Tron and I think he has the acting and the looks to play the part.

    I’ve heard so many conflicting reports, there’s no point in keeping up with these casting rumors.

  • Samuel

    I actually don’t mind between Garrett Hedlund and Armie Hammer.

    Still holding out for Ryan Goseling, but I would not be upset with Armie Hammer.
    I’m not sure why but I don’t think Garrett Hedlund is attractive.  Yeah he has the blond hair and green eyes, but he just doesn’t do it for me.  Armie is much more swoon-worthy, and may not be an exact match to the description of Finnick in the book, but he looks like someone everyone in the capitol would lust after.

    I think Armie Hammer would knock it out of the park, I mean, arena.

  • Hensworthfan

    I think Chris Hensworth sould be Finnick for the Hunger Games

      He looks waaay too much like his brother. People would be wondering if Finnick is Gale’s older brother :P Plus, Chris isn’t the right kind of sexy for the role, in my opinion :P

    Garrett Hedlund??! SWOON :)

    To me Taylor was the closest image to Finnick, sucks that he’s out. I wouldn’t be opposed to Garrett though.
