According to E!
, the top three contenders for the role of Finnick Odair in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” are Garrett Hedlund, Armie Hammer, and Taylor Kitsch. Well, one of them confirmed that he won’t play the most coveted role. Here is what Kitsch replied when LA Times emailed the actor for confirmation:
“Not going to happen,” the 31-year-old actor wrote in an email on Wednesday. Kitsch, who is coming off the poor box office performance of the big-budget films “John Carter” and “Battleship,” would seem to have fit the bill for the athletic, good-looking character.
As for “The Lone Ranger” star Hammer and “TRON: Legacy” lead Hedlund, the studio behind the franchise, Lionsgate, said it would not confirm, deny or comment on any casting in progress.
And if you could remember, Zap2it
has also claimed that there is no shortlist yet for potential Finnick Odair actors. It really makes me crazy because I can’t wait to know who the hell will play Finnick!
