Hunger Games: Finnick Odair Search Down To Three?

| Filed under: Film FlickersTrevor DonovanGarrett HedlundHunger Games

Finnick Odair

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has FINALLY found its Finnick Odair!!

Well, okay. They haven't made a final pick yet — BUT, we hear they've narrowed it down to three possible hotties:

1. Armie Hammer,
2. Taylor Kitsch or
3. Garrett Hedlund

The source also says the studio is very close to casting the stunningly seksi former tribute from District 4. In fact their final selection could be announced as early as THIS WEEK!

Lionsgate tossing around the idea of having three fight for to the death for the part! We think that's a super fab idea — but only if everyone gets to watch!! LOL!

Are we heartbroken that our Finnick pick, Trevor Donovan, didn't make the cut? Um… YES!

Howeves, we have confidence that Lionsgates' choice of dreamboats will do just fine.

Who would U like to see as Finnik??

    armie hammer maybe ,garrett hedlund noway, but omg why didnt i think of taylor kitsch earlier. he is so gorgeous . if he grew his hair out again he would be a spitting image of what i imagined finnick to look like. please please please pick him.

  2. zowiiii0 says – reply to this


    none of em really taylor kitsch is fit but couldnt imagine him as finnick the only person i imagined as finnich was ian somerhalder when he was younger, he looked well fit in lost

  3. 3

    Armie looks too old, Alex Pettyfer IS Finnick!

  4. 4

    Did they even bother to read the books and read the part where Finnick is avtually physically described clearly they have not because none of these dudes even come close NEXT

  5. 5

    I love Garrett Hedlund!

  6. 6

    Well, Taylor is probably cheapest to hire, but he's tainted with FAIL. "John Carter" and Battleship" ? I would go with Armie. Love him. They will probably pick Garrett.

    I don't feel like any of these guys are the right choice. Definitely not what I imagined I was thinking something more boyish they all look too old!

  8. ONIT says – reply to this


    Honestly, that's what people may think:
    - Josh Hutcherson looks like a dwarf next to Armie Hammer. Who did that casting?
    - Isn't Taylor Kitsch the Mars guy from that awful and embarrassing Disney movie?
    - Garrett Hedlund's in TRON!!! But he's still kinda odd somehow and I can't figure out why.

  9. 9

    If any of these three guys gets the role it will be a catastrophy. There got to be another actor who could play this role better and look better/sexier? Matt Bomer? Jesse Williams? Milo Ventimiglia? Henry Cavill? Ezra Miller (if he beefed up a little)? Ryan Phillippe? James Marsden? Travis Fimmel ? Oliver Jackson-Cohen? Anyone?

  10. 10

    Armie wins.

  11. 11

    Taylor Kitsch!

  12. 12

    First of all, Armie Hammer is only 25, Finnick is 24 so he's not too old. Second, I don't get why people are making a big deal about the casting. Obviously not everyone is going to agree with his "sexiness". Also, if what you are getting out of a story about the horrors evil totalitarian government is the sexiness of the characters then you have problems.

    ALEX PETTYFER MUST BE FINNICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE NEEDS TO OR I WILL DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. 14

    The first dude does not look good. Either Taylor or Garrett. Garrett seems more fitting, more rougher looking. Would suck I'd they pick some hairless kid for the role.

  15. 15

    Truth is NONE of these guys fit the part appearance-wise.
    Garrett - yum! - is not gonna be interested, nor do I think Armie Hammer is. And also, Armie looks older than his age (25). I know nothing of Taylor, but he's not a good fit either.

    If you're gonna stay true to the books, you'll need someone like… Hunter Parrish or Alex Pettyfer!

  16. 16

    Wait– just read that Chris Zylka from The Secret Circle is interested. That guy could be a good fit!!
    (And on another note: Armie Hammer isn't available this summer due to another project).

    So, Hunter Parrish, Alex Pettyfer or Chris Zylka! Cast one of these, please.

  17. 17


    none of them!

    i'm not a huge fan so finnick is the only reason i like the last book!! he needs to be hotter than these three? are you kidding me???? it's finnick! get matt bomer

  18. ev3rthesame says – reply to this


    GARRETT HEDLUND SHOULD BE IT. He can actually act and is decent looking. Gross on TK, but Armie is a good looking guy.

  19. 19

    If it can't be Hunter Parrish, it should be Garrett Hedlund!

  20. 20

    TAYLOR KITSCH!! YES!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Mike says – reply to this


    I think any of these three could do a good job, as long as its not Alex Pettyfer, that guy could NOT act to save his life, he is a terrible actor, keep him away from Catching Fire.

  22. annamorphos says – reply to this


    Didn't Taylor Kitsch say in an interview that he has no interest in the role?

  23. 23


  24. 24

    Garrett all the way. Armie Hammer does NOT come to mind when I read the book at all…
    GARRETT HEDLUND PLEASE! He was SO hott in Tron.

  25. 25

    I agree with everyone else: Alex Pettyfer would also be great. He has the look.

    GARRETT HEDLUND MUST BE FINNICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE NEEDS TO OR I WILL DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Mohini says – reply to this


    No seriosly when i read the book and i looked at garrett, he instantly looked like a flinnick. You know garrett is exaclty what i imaged flinnick as, so he has to be FLINNICK!!!

  28. Nikole says – reply to this


    None of these guys are good enought for the part. I wanna see Chris Zylka play Finnik

  29. Nikole says – reply to this


    Re: Jessica_Sweden – Yes!! I was thinking that Chris Zylka would be PERFECT for the part!!

  30. nicole says – reply to this


    To everyone who is saying they are too old, they always have people who are older playing younger characters so that's not really an issue. In my opinion Garrett is perfect for Finnick and is actually who I pictured while I was reading the book. Just think of how he looked in Tron and less like that picture up there because he definitely looked much younger without the beard and stash. Besides, I do not picture Hammer what so ever and I don't even know the other dude.

  31. 31

    This is NOT true it's only rumor. None of these guys are in the running. Trevor Donovan still has a chance.

  33. Sarah says – reply to this


    Garrett or Oliver Jackson Cohen as Finnick Odair. Oliver also looks like Finnick to me. He would be great.

  34. Sally says – reply to this


    Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Finnick Odair! Please!!

  35. Jilly says – reply to this


    Garrett! He's proven himself to be a great actor from Tron and Country Strong. He looks like a Finnick to me, and he's the perfect age. If you think about it, Jennifer, Liam, and Josh are all around 20 playing 16-18 year olds. So they kind I need Garrett who is a little older to play at 25 year old Finnick! Andddd he's adorable <3 Garrett pleaseeee! :)

    Re: NunyaBizness – I couldnt agree more, when reading the series i pictured Alex Pettyfer to be Finnick!

  38. Gemma says – reply to this


    ALEX PETTYFER IS THE PERFECT FINNICK! I don't even know why he wasn't in the run-up :(

  39. Camilla says – reply to this


    None of them. But if I have to choose, I would say Garrett. To me, they all look to old though. Deep down inside I'm betting on James Gaisford as the perfect Finnick, but - you know, he's too young. Still my perfect Finnick, no matter what.

  40. Jay says – reply to this


    Okay, listen, maybe they don't look exactly like Finnick, but they'll obviously MAKE whoever gets the role look like he does. Duh. That's what the makeup is for… Seriously? You can't say they can't play the part just because their hair is the wrong color. Look at Jennifer Lawrence, she was blonde!

  41. Ryan says – reply to this


    SLIT. A. BITCH. Perez was right, Trevor Donovan IS Finnick. I read the books with him in mind and he reminds me of Finnick a lot more than these dudes. This makes me seem really CW-biased but I could also see Chris Zylka playing the role, but definitely not as much as Trevor Donovan… I hope they reconsider and cast him even though it seems unlikely.

  42. Sandra says – reply to this


    I like Garrett best. Finnick should have a tall lean swimmers bod. Josh Hutcherson was not a good choice for Peeta looks wise, but he can act so im okay with it. Alex Pettyfer or whatever his name is CANNOT ACT!..Looks aren't cutting it anymore…you have to be able to act…that's why there are so many crappy movies these days…they cast for looks and not acting ability….real shame.
