Wading Through Finnick Casting Rumors
Is it me, or is it starting to get a little confusing trying to keep up with all the Finnick casting rumors going around? In less than a week, we’ve heard that Lionsgate is courting Robert Pattinson, had Robert Pattinson refute those rumors, got excited over E!Online claiming that three fan favorites have been shortlisted, and read the Zap2it article saying that there is no shortlist!
Who is a Finnick Fan to believe?
While E! says that the shortlist has been narrowed down to Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch, and Garrett Hedlund and that casting might be announced this week, Zap2it claims that E!Online is mistaken.
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.
A rumor’s a rumor until we hear the offical word from Lionsgate, and the fact that this supposed shortlist includes such huge fan favorites seems too good to be true. Hopefully the final decision will be made soon, and we can stop wading through all these Finnick casting rumors!
