Casting for Hunger Games’ sequel Catching Fire’s Finnick Odair is the hottest thing going around Hollywood right now. It seems experienced actors and new comers alike are hoping to be casts in the role. However, that’s not really the case. Surprising, one of Finnick Odair’s rumored contenders put the rumors surrounding him and the role to rest. Could it be that there’s an actor out there who doesn’t want the role? Believe it or not, it is true.
Taylor Kitsch was recently rumored to be among three top contenders for the role but the 31-year-old has since stated it was, “not going to happen.” Kitsch didn’t elaborate on why he would never take on Finnick’s role but fans don’t have to despair because there are several other hot actors who can easily fill the part: Robert Pattinson and Justin Timberlake are just a few names being floated around Hollywood.
So, casting for Hunger Games’ sequel Catching Fire’s Finnick Odair continues. Time is of the essence though because casting has to finish soon. Catching Fire is set to begin filming in August!
