MTV asks Hunter Parrish about Finnick
Whilst we eagerly await official casting news from Lionsgate, MTV has continued the rumour mill, catching up with Hunter Parrish and asking whether or not he’d like to fill the role.
In the above video Hunter says that he’d ‘love’ the job, but hasn’t been actively pursuing it and is adopting a more cautious approach the second time around:
“I kind of dove in for that one, so for this one, I don’t know,” he said. “I think you just kind of step back, and if it happens, it happens. I’m not going to really spend too much time thinking about it, but I’d love to. I wouldn’t cast myself, but that’s not helping me getting cast for that movie,” he joked. “But I’m a fan of the books. I think there’s fantastic actors that would probably be better. So there’s that for getting me a job!”
After missing out on the role of Peeta (sorry Hunter, but as you say Josh is perfect!) Hunter has become a fan favourite for the role of Finnick. Can you see him as the District 4 victor?
