FFS, why dies it have to be about looks?! the important thing is Finnick's characterization, not how many 13-year-old girls swoon over him. Jesus, that **** gets me freaking pissed to high heaven, just STOP IT!

That would be funny. I read somewhere that Taylor Kitsch is in the running.

Well, I haven't read the books so correct me if I'm wrong....but isn't Finnick's whole plight defined by the fact that the entire nation (or at least the wealthy elite) wants to f*** him? He's supposed to be the most beautiful man in all the land or something like that? I would think there's a certain attractive-ness level required for that kind of role.

Yes.


I hate this notion that beauty is a bad thing. Its a point of his character. Just getting some random "hunk" like that previous list is not doing the character justice. You can have someone who is beautiful AND be a great actor. Look at Nick Hoult, whom I'd still consider my ideal Finnick unless someone points out another better choice.

The 3 guys from the last page are meh choices. Hammer is definitely the best one out of that list.

Well I don't find Nick Hoult to be attractive at all (obviously Katniss would disagree), but I'd still take him over Armie Hammer.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Philip Seymour Hoffman offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee

While rampant speculation on who is or is not in the running for the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire continues to set the Internet ablaze, producers have reportedly made their first offer for another pivotal role in the sequel.

According to multiple reports, Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman has been asked to play Plutarch Heavensbee, the new Gamemaker at the Capitol after Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) was creatively executed at the end of The Hunger Games. Plutarch is a far savvier political animal than his predecessor, and he plays a crucial role in the events of Catching Fire.

Hoffman just ended a widely acclaimed run playing Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman on Broadway, so why not take the summer off and then hop onto one of the biggest movie franchises in Hollywood? Should the deal go through, it will be the first major new role cast in Catching Fire. Director Francis Lawrence is due to begin shooting the film later this fall. Lionsgate had no comment.

Lionsgate's 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Headed to Imax Screens
6:46 AM PDT 6/13/2012 by Etan Vlessing

The giant screen exhibitor will release a digitally-remastered version of the teen tentpole on November 22, 2013.

BANFF, ALBERTA – Imax is to release Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on its super-sized screens on November 22, 2013.

Imax had success releasing the first Hunger Games film, with a rollout in China on 67 of its giant screens to come later this month.

For the second installment of the movie franchise, director Francis Lawrence will use Imax cameras to shoot certain scenes from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which will also be digitally remastered into the Imax format.

"We are thrilled to continue the productive partnership we enjoyed with Imax on the first installment of The Hunger Games," Lionsgate motion picture group co-chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger said Wednesday.

The Imax rollout of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will take place day-and-date with Lionsgate's wide release on November 22, 2013.

I had originally pictured Oliver Platt, as I have said many times before, but Philip Seymour Hoffman would be awesome.

I imagined actors like John Goodman or Stephen Tobolowsky for the role but Hoffman's a fantastic actor and it'd be great if he accepts.

Just finished Mockingjay and well no spoilers here but it get into some real dark gears of war type s**t, how are they going to keep this pg-13?

Oh and yes Finnick is supposed to be drop dead gorgeous to the point where you can't take him seriously at first. Armie is perfect for that.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
They're just going to have to tone down the gore, like they did in the first film. If you're talking about the kids and what happens to them, my guess is they will change that to adults, and still have Prim involved

Exclusive: Mia Wasikowska & Zoe Aggeliki In The Mix For Johanna Mason In 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'
Quote:

While much of the casting chatter in recent weeks surrounding "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" has been around who will play Finnick Odair in the highly anticipated sequel, there are still more key characters to be cast. And some names are beginning to emerge for who might take the crucial role of Johanna Mason in the film. Sources close to the project tell The Playlist that Mia Wasikowska and model/actress Zoe Aggeliki are in the mix for Johanna Mason. The character becomes a strong ally with Katniss and Peeta during the 75th Hunger Games, but has a testy relationship with Katniss who likens her to an older sister who hates you. She's a fierce competitor who has no family and friends left in District 7 where she hails, with her weapon of choice being an axe. Director Francis Lawrence is keen on finding the right actress to fit the part, and is looking at both big names and lesser known talents.
Both actresses have been in discussions for the part, and we hear that Aggeliki could sign in the coming days, but nothing is certain just yet. Aggeliki may not be a familiar face at the moment, but she'll be seen next summer in "R.I.P.D." and also landed a role in "Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters" as Silena Beauregard. Whoever does snag the role will not only appear in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" but in "Mockingjay" as well, as Johanna figures strongly in that story as well. Production on 'Catching Fire' begins later this year, and the film will hit theaters on November 22, 2013.

Relative to Jennifer Lawerance, Mia looks about the same age as her, though I think Joanna is suppose to be a bit older, real actors age aside.

Could This Be Brutus in 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'?

Casting news regarding fan-frenzied franchises like "The Hunger Games" is usually kept very close to the chest until a very specific and methodical announcement process employed by the studio comes through, but every so often an actor'll unknowingly let it slip before he or she is supposed to that they've scored a role in the movie.

So, has that very thing happened with "Magic Mike" actor Kevin Nash and the first "Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire?" Maybe so.

According to USA Today, Nash attended last night's premiere of "Magic Mike" and told the publication that he's in talks for a role in "Catching Fire" and said, "I just pray it's recurring, that he doesn't get killed."

Nash, a former wrestling champion-turned actor, definitely has the look and age for one of the named tributes in the "Hunger Games" sequel: Brutus, the buff, 40-something District 2 champion who happily volunteers for the third Quarter Quell victors bout.

True, the character wasn't the most concentrated-upon in Suzanne Collins' book, but the same was so for President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) in the first "Hunger Games" installment. Besides, there's a lot of meat to be drawn from Brutus' connection to 74th Annual Hunger Games tributes Cato and Clove, especially since Katniss killed his district's boy tribute. The theme of "Catching Fire" is remembering who the real enemy is (the tyrannical government system itself), but while Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) tries to see the bigger picture, it's guys like Brutus who keep the Capitol's way of things alive by playing the game full-throttle. So, in that sense, Brutus is a more significant villain than previously depicted and could be a fun role for the filmmakers and Nash to expand upon.

That website is reading TOO much into it. No way they would extend the role of Brutus ESPECIALLY if Kevin Nash is playing him.

Nash was just in Rock of Ages as a body guard. He stood in the background and said one word the entire film.

Yeah, I don't know why they feel that from what little he said that they'd think of extending the role for him. He's a background, filler actor, if anything.
