‘Magic Mike’ actor Kevin Nash reveals he’s in talks for a ‘Catching Fire’ role

Speaking on the red carpet of the Magic Mike premiere yesterday, actor Kevin Nash reveals he may have a role in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The only problem? He didn’t reveal what role he’s in talks for.

Said Nash to USA Today:

Meanwhile, Nash said he’s in talks for a role in the next installment of The Hunger Games. “I just pray it’s recurring, that he doesn’t get killed,” Nash said.

Nash is a pretty built guy, as you can see from the photo above. Can you make any guesses as to who he’d be playing? Could it be District 2 tribute Brutus, whose name alone is a perfect match for Nash?

Feel free to make your suggestions in the comments. If it’s not Brutus, we have a hard time imagining Nash in any of the bigger new Catching Fire roles.

Catching Fire casting news has slowly been gaining momentum. Over the weekend we learned about two actresses in talks to play Johanna. We also know that Philip Seymour Hoffman may play Plutarch Heavensbee.
