RUMOUR: Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund considered as Finnick Odair?
E! Online heard from a source stating Lionsgate is considering between 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.
However, another source says the studio may also be looking at unknowns à la Brad Pitt in Thelma & Louise.
All three actors come with star status. Hammer will next be seen playing the title role in the Lone Ranger flick opposite Johnny Depp as Tonto. Tron Legacy’s Hedlund was also a big Cannes Film Festival headline with the premiere of On The Road with Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst while Kitsch can currently be seen in Battleship.
Reps for the three did not comment.
Here’s what Lionsgate has to say on this matter:
A Lionsgate rep said, “As with the first film, we won’t be confirming, denying or commenting on any casting rumors for this title. We will announce news wide when there is official casting news to announce.”
Please consider this as a rumor unless it is confirmed by Lionsgate.
What are your thoughts on Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund if one of them will portray Finnick Odair? Or do you prefer an unknown instead?
