Catching Fire Casting Odyssey Closes In


Managing Editor

We’ve brought you many, many updates and reports concerning the casting process for Catching Fire, and now we’re continuing the saga. Tonight we’ve learned that according to Mia Wasikowaska’s rep, she is not in the running to play Johanna Mason. This contradicts our intel from The Playlist that cited her as one of the top contenders. That leaves Zoe Aggeliki in the rumor mill for the part.

Similarly, Taylor Kitsch has confirmed that he will also not be involved in Catching Fire, which narrows our list down to just two names: Armie Hammer, most famous for playing the Winklevoss twins in the Social Network, and Garrett Hedlund of On the Road.

Lionsgate is still mute on any and all casting rumors, so the jury is still out on who has the best shot of getting either role. But they can’t hold out forever!

What do you think, Hunger Games fans? Are your dreams crushed, or is your contender still in the running? Tell us in the comments!

    I really would like to see Jesse Williams cast as Finnick, but I guess it looks like that hope is going to be dashed.

    I think 90% of all Finnick fans have had their hopes dashed a long time ago…

    Grant Gustin as Finnick Odair!!!
