Armie Hammer Frontrunner for Finnick
Lainey Gossip is now reporting that Armie Hammer is the frontrunner for the role of Finnick Odair in Catching Fire:
E! News reported the other day that Taylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund, and Armie Hammer were on the short list to play Finnick in Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games. Multiple sources tell me that Armie Hammer is far and away the first choice of director Francis Lawrence. That if it were up to him and “if he could start tomorrow with his dream cast, Armie would be Finnick”
This is in no way confirmed but it is worth noting that Lainey was one of the first sites to report on Jennifer Lawrence’s frontrunner status for Katniss Everdeen last year. Armie is perhaps the most popular choice among Hunger Games fans and quite frankly if he gets it I’ll be pretty happy!
