The Hunger Games: The Search For Finnick Odair Is Down To TWO??

| Filed under: Trevor DonovanGarrett HedlundAlex PettyferHunger Games

Taylor Kitsch

Only TWO tributes actors remain in the fight to play Finnick Odair!

Rumor has it, the search for the right person to play the fyyynest guy in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been narrowed down to Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund.

In an email written Wednesday, Kitsch said of odds of he scoring the coveted Hunger Games role are … nonexistent. He simply stated :

"Not going to happen."

That means…. the District 4 champ will either be Garrett or Armie!

Lionsgate, said it would not confirm, deny or comment on any casting in progress. So, there is a possibility the rumors are wrong.

That would mean seksi stars like Trevor Donovan, Jesse Williams or Alex Pettyfer could still be in the running for the part!

    armie hammer or garrett hedlund?! of all the beautiful men in hollywood THOSE are the two they've settled on?? i hope thats not true!! i like jesse williams as finnick. the role requires someone who oozes sex appeal and he does that

    It's got to be Garrett, got to be. I mean, have you heard his VOICE?! He's charming and warm- he's a sterling actor too.

    Armie Hammer is a very good looking guy, but he's already a big name in Hollywood and they tend not to want already established actors involved in these franchises. Jesse Williams is also hot, but (GASP!) he's half black and we know how some of these Hunger Games fans act when, heaven forbid, there's a non white person cast in these movies. My money is on Jesse because he is the hottest guy out of those listed.

    Vanessa Hudgen's boyfriend, Austin Butler, is extemely good looking. Isn't this character they are trying to cast suppose to be amazingly, over-the-top , handsome? That Taylor guy is pretty cute but those other two are just o.k.

    Re: Janet – I like the idea of Alan Ritchson as well, but I'm Trevor Donovan booster all the way, but would be ok with Alan

    Still sitting over here in the little Grant Gustin camp. :)

    Jake Abel should play Finnick.

    Garrett Hedlund is absolutely perfect, i pictured him while reading catching fire and mockingjay years ago, so its great to see him up in the running for the part. <333

    YES! he was my least favorite!


  16. MRSMOMOA says – reply to this


    I don't like any of these guys for Finnick…

  17. 17

    I don't care as long as Alex Pettyfer doesn't get the part.

  18. Hey!! says – reply to this


    I looove these rumors because I google some of these actors that I don't know and it's nice to discover some new hot actors! Honestly, for me it's Armie … he's so HOOTTT. And he's Finnick's age, 24.

  19. CJ says – reply to this


    Hells yesssss GARRETT!!!!!! Please not Alex or Grant. PLEASE! Grant is so puny and looks too young for the part!

  20. Marie says – reply to this


    What about Grant Gustin for Finnick?????

  21. 21

    Taylor wouldn't fit because every movie he is in has flopped, at least domestically (John Carter, Battleship, etc.).

    I've had my fingers crossed for ages that Armie Hammer would be cast as Finnick Odair - so hearing these rumors that he could potentially be in the running (and very near the final decision) for the role seems almost too good to be true! Seriously though, he's absolutely perfect for the part - he's a fantastic actor, undeniably gorgeous and can convincingly play the initially (supposably) arrogant/charming Finnick persona (that's played up for the Capitol and viewers) and later the tragic/damaged Finnick in Mockingjay after he reveals the abuse he has suffered. Armie for the win!

  23. Jessie says – reply to this


    Grant gustin is perfect for finnick

  24. Ma says – reply to this


    I want to see Alex P. or Zac Efron as Finnick. That's so unffair… They're the perfect actors for the role. ç.ç

  25. egurl says – reply to this


    No! Come on, Freddie Stroma for Finnick Odair!

  26. Dai says – reply to this


    I'm still hoping for Grant Gustin…

  27. 1D4Me says – reply to this


    Zac Efron!! Please!! He's smexy!!

  28. Kiki says – reply to this


    Alex Pettyfer all the way for Finnick!

  29. Lex says – reply to this


    oh my GOD let it be Garrett!
    But I seriously bet that they'll surprise us out of the blue, and it will be neither Armie or Garrett, but someone we didn't even anticipate.

  30. Ryan says – reply to this


    Please please please… I beg of Lionsgate to cast Trevor Donovan as Finnick. May the odds be ever in his favour!

  31. Meg says – reply to this


    I know he was in Twilight (briefly), but Cam Gigandet would make an awesome Finnick. He is simply beautiful. Failing that, I'd throw my hat in for Matt Bomer or Charlie Hunnam.

    Katee Shackhoff as Johanna Mason !!!!!!!!!!
