90210’s Trevor Donovan wants to be Finnick Odair
In a new interview for Advocate.com Trevor Donovan, which can be seen in The CW‘s 90210, added himself to the long list of actors who want to play Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games sequel, when the interviewer asked him what did he think about Perez Hilton‘s campaign to get him the role. Here’s what he had to say about it:
Perez Hilton has started an unofficial campaign to get you cast as Finnick in the next Hunger Games movie. Thoughts?
I’m humbled and honored, but most of all excited, because Mario [Lavandeira, a.k.a. Perez] is a good guy. All actors have a dream role; playing Finnick Odair is mine. I know the odds are stacked against me. I’ll be going up against big stars like Zac Efron and Armie Hammer, but you know what, I want it more and am very passionate about it, it’s not just another job to me, it’s much more than that. I’m not saying that it is for them. I was a fan before anyone knew the Hunger Games series would be made into movies. I read all the books the day they first came out and knew right there and then I wanted to play Finnick. I’m definitely the underdog in this race, but I’m committed and going to give it all I’ve got. As Effie Trinket says, “May the odds be ever in your favor.”
It sounds like he really wants the role, right? But what do you think? Is he good enough to play the boy with the sugar cube? Had you thought of him for the role before?
