It was previously reported by EOnline that their source revealed to them that Taylor Kitsch, Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund are top contenders for the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
However, according to Zap2it, there’s no short list yet for the role.
Zap2it’s source says nobody’s in the lead just yet considering talks only began on Tuesday (May 29). Actors are still reading for the role, and the studio is strongly considering bringing in an unknown to avoid ego clashes on set.
The scenes the actors are reportedly reading for the role include the sugar cube scene where Finnick first meets Katniss and the scene where he hears Annie’s scream.
