There’s been a lot of talk about casting for Catching Fire, (renamed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as to not confuse theater-goers), the sequel to one of the biggest blockbusters of all time.
One of the biggest roles is Finnick Odair – the muscular, reddish brown-haired, green-eyed, former victor (and Capital prostitute-by-force) who wields a trident and swims like Michael Phelps.
Armie Hammer (The Social Network), Garrett Hedland (Tron Legacy), Taylor Kitsch, and Robert Pattinson have been brought up, though Pattinson and Kitsch confirmed that they would not be in it.
Filming begins in fall so casting directors better get on this. Channing Tatum and Chris Evans should also be considered though they’re both about 7 years older than Odair is supposed to be.
