Zap2It denies previous report: there’s no short list for Finnick yet
Yesterday, E! Online reported that Finnick casting was down to three final names: Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund. The fandom was happy to receive the news for two reasons: an official announcement may came soon and all three actors are fan favorites. But we may better lower our hopes a little, Zap2It is denying the information and assures us there’s still no short list for Finnick and that several actors are still being considered.
Zap2it’s source says nobody’s in the lead just yet considering talks only began on Tuesday (May 29). Actors are still reading for the role, and the studio is strongly considering bringing in an unknown to avoid ego clashes on set. [...]
The scenes the actors are reportedly reading for the role include the sugar cube scene where Finnick first meets Katniss and the scene where he hears Annie’s scream.
While this still no official word, we can be sure that the Catching Fire casting is in full swing now, and they are paying special attention to Finnick’s.
