Casting of Finnick Odair

Well, with Catching Fire supposed to be released next year, I'm very curious has to who is going to play Finnick. After the stellar job casting the Hunger Games, I'm sure that they will cast the perfect Finnick. I'm expecting to be a little bit shocked with who they choose cause I was very shocked with their choices for Katniss, Peeta, and Cinna but in the end the actors they chose were perfect for the parts. Anyway, so these are some of the actors that I would be interested in seeing play the part of Finnick. Maybe not in the actual films but actors that to me look the role.

“ Yes, he played Finnick on youtube and yes, for their project it worked and he was totally believable for that however he is too young to play him in the actual movie. Finnick is supposed to be about 24ish and while James has the young and charming appeal he needs to be older. That being said I loved him as Haymitch and as Finnick, just not for the actual movie ” - sizzle-332-210268
