From E!’s Marc Malkin: “Has The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire found its Finnick Odair? Not just yet, but it sounds like the movie franchise’s studio Lionsgate could be getting close to finally picking its man to play the dreamy tribute. A source tells us at that the top three names being bantered about right now are Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund. The source also says that a final decision from the studio may be announced as early as this week.” Well, we KNOW that no studio in the world is going to touch poor Taylor Kitsch after starring in the two biggest bombs of the
year millenium. And I have a feeling that at this point in his career, Armie doesn’t want to play a supporting role in a sequel, no matter how huge it’s going to be. That leaves Garrett. And I’m fine with that. Garrett it is, then. I’m calling it now.
