According to E!, Garrett Hedlund, Armie Hammer, and Taylor Kitsch are battling for the role of Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Plus, there's also an "ala Brad Pitt" in Thelma & Louise to join the pool of Finnick Odair wannabes. If I'm not mistaken, that "Brad Pitt" look-alike they are talking about is William Levy. He's the male model in Jennifer Lopez's music video for "I'm Into You."

Garrett and Armie were both fan favorite and recently MTV has published an article about the potential career break of Taylor Kitsch if he can get the role of Finnick in the Hunger Games sequel. Also, Stephanie Meyer, the author of Twilight, wants Kitsch to play Finnick. So, the news can be connected to each other but let's just wait for the official announcement from Lionsgate. The filming will start soon because by January 2013, Jennifer Lawrence is set to film the sequel to X-Men: First Class. E! has also stated that the decision about the casting will be announced within this week.
