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!
