More Finnick Rumors: Armie Hammer and Colton Haynes
On the one hand we have Lainey reporting that Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence wants Armie Hammer:
Multiple sources tell me that Armie Hammer is far and away the first choice of director Francis Lawrence. That if it were up to him and “if he could start tomorrow with his dream cast, Armie would be FInnick”. At press time, nothing is final. And besides, a lot of people think this might not be the best career move for Hammer anyway. I spoke with a few talent agents who said they’d hesitate before recommending it because it ties him up for two pictures and ‘the question is whether or not he still needs to “break out”.
And on the other hand we have blogger Brian Tuft who claims he spoke with Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes about the role of Mr Odair:
I got to meet some of the cast of MTV’s “Teen Wolf”, including Colton Haynes. When I told him he was my pick for the role, he told me that the three who were widely reported as having the role on lock are not in the running at this point as far as he knew and that it was just a rumor. When I asked if this meant I should remain hopeful, he said yes. He has been in contact with the studio and has a meeting there next week. He kept it vague, and I understand completely. I imagine the studio wants things kept very much under wraps.
Is your brain frazzled yet? Ours too! Either way, if these reports are to be believed, we’re still a few weeks off casting District 4′s trident wielding tribute!
