Hunger Games Casting: Jesse Williams For Finnick??

Okay, we could see that!

It's time to cast the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, and fans of the books are OBSESSING over who is going to play Panem's seksist man alive: Finnick Odair.

OUR Odair pick is 90210 dreamboat Trevor Donovan — but he's not the only TV star up for the job!

Another very popular Finnick fan fave is Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams.

When asked how he felt about playing Finnick, the blue-eyed actor said:

"I have heard that! I've seen a lot of that on Twitter. I didn't know what the heck a Finnick was when I was getting a lot of the questions about it."


That's pretty disappointed to hear from a cast contender! (FYI: Donovan says he has read Catching Fire SEVEN times!)

ANYWAY, Jesse made up for his mistake by doing some research. He adds:

"I've since been educated, and that's fun. People are really, really excited about it. It certainly is a big, successful project, and I read the first book, which was great. In this day and age, I think it matters what the fans think and they envision certain things."

It suuure does!

SOOO, who do U think should be cast as Finnick??

    Re: T.E.A.M.J.O.L.I.E – I completely agree with you, hopefully they find an actor who is not very "known" but looks like how he is supposed to look

    For all of those claiming racist on the people who don't want this freak as Finnick, here is a direct quote from the book that describes Finnick: "Finnick Odair's famous sea green eyes are only inches from mine….. Tall, athletic, with golden skin and bronze-colored hair and those incredible eyes. This guy does not have the skin tone. Honestly his skin looks disgusting. He would also not look good with bronze hair. He looks gross.

    yes I think Jessie is actually very sexy but,
    but I just can't see him as Finnick, I always thought Finnick as a bit younger looking

    Finnick is not African American, he is a tanned white man. There is a difference.

    i don't like him to be the finnick. i like tom hiddleston to be finnick. :)

    There's a good chance I won't watc the movie if Jesse Williams isn't Finnick. And I LOVED the book. But in all seriousness, Jesse is perfect. He has beautiful eyes, and a beautiful body, and he's probably the sexiest person in North America. If Finnick is the sexiest person in Panem, which is North America in the future, it only makes sense for Jesse to play his role!!! #JesseForFinnick

    Jesse's perfect for Finnick! He is drop dead gorgeous and can definitely pull off his sea green eyes. I didn't picture him while reading but he would be soooo good as finnick!! hope he gets the part!!!!

    Re: Kristen – you saying his skin looks disgusting is racist. maybe take a good look at your pathetic life before you judge others.

  13. Asdfghjk says – reply to this
