Who Should Play Finnick Odair in 'Catching Fire'?

  • Who Should Play Finnick Odair in 'Catching Fire'?
Hunter Parrish, who was actually considered for the role of Peeta Mellark which eventually went to Josh Hutcherson, has actually been in talks to play Finnick. Playing the son of a drug dealer on Showtime's 'Weeds,' he certainly would have the angst needed to play Finnick.

    here's my personal favourite for Finnick!

    He would be great as Finnick, look at him! If you actually read the books then you should of at least had that image. I say yes completely to Hunter Parrish!

    Face perfect... Height not so much... But they messed up with Peeta's height as well!! Hollywood can do a good job making someone look taller then they are, like they did with Tom Cruise!

  • Ernsssss

    he looks good but my number one pet peeve is that he is frickin' FIVE FEET SEVEN INCHES TALL -.- if you REALLY want a perfect finnick he has to be at least 6'0

  • Luana Jane Williams

    To be honest, I see Grant Gustin should be Finnick. He would be perfect for the role! he even said that he would love to be Finnick D:

    I don't find him attractive 1 bit, but it seems A LOT of people r pushing 4 him. Sooo... if they choose 2 cast him, he badly needs a tan, to bulk up, many, many things b4 filming starts.

    He's only 26? Dang, he looks older. Anywho, I could def c Garret getting the role.

    he looks great but if he's going to be finnik he needs a tanning session LOL!

  • Ildze

    He would be good. :)

  • Gian

    Finnick reminds me of Silas!!! Hunter is already good at playing Silas, why can't he be great at playing the role of Finnick?

  • spiniton85

    ew, I do not like this guy at all. I don't see it! His face is a little too feminine.

    Apr26Aditya Khanal Sharukh does not need to make it a huge issue. Whoever comes to US must go through the suirecty process, it is a normal procedure. When anyone is busted into suirecty stuff, they may be questioned, the question session may go one hour to nine hour, it all depends on how well you cooperate to the suirecty officials. In the same scenario, john abraham, Salman Khan has also gone through, but they never brought these into media so wildly, Sharukh is a normal passenger only when he goes through the airport, please request to shahrukh not to let his stardom go on top of his head. stardom has nothing to do with suirecty check. Even US president should go through it. Please donot bring minor issue into media,,, shahrukh. we know you are smart in doing advertisement.

    This is exactly how I pictured Finnick when I read Catching Fire!

  • gomenesigh

    Retract my comment on Justin Timberlake! i don't know who this man is but he is definitely a good physical make to be Finnick.

  • Kam

    YESSS! HE IS (he should be most of all here!) :]

  • Alejandritha Vilchez

    he must be, it seems both Finnick

  • grace

    HUNTER!!!! if he dies his hair red he will be PERFECT!!!!

  • shoebox24

    Garrett is 27. But he looks 31. Hunter is handsome enough. Trust me. He even has the body for it. You can't tell me Josh was your first pick for Peeta, but he's done great with the role.

  • Emerald

    Garret's only 26, 2 years older than Finnick is supposed to be. This guy is too pale, and not handsome enough to play Finnick. Garret Hedlund deff needs to play Finnick :D

  • Lalalalooloo

    Please please please please please please please!

  • shoebox24

    Finnick is supposed to be 24. James, Garrett, and Jensen are great looking. But they are too old. Way too old. Hunter Parrish is ideal. He is Finnick, look at him.

    this is probably a lot like how i pictured him. this is probably one of the only suggestions that i have seen that would actually work for Finnick

  • nichole

    I think Finnick Odair should be Hunter Parrish!!!!!!!:)

  • sdf

    yeah maybe

  • Snailer

    I love him! He would be great I think, and he is in awesome shape.

  • judy

    he actually looks a bit closer to how i pictured Finnick while reading the books... but can he bulk up enough to look like he can rescue?

  • katherine

    Yes! Now here is finally someone I could see as Finnick.
