A week ago, E! Online spread the news that Lionsgate had (finally) choose three men (Taylor Kitsch, Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund) that would be play ‘Finnick Odair’ Role in Catching Fire. However, sources close to production confirms to  Zap2It that the auditions had just begun a few days ago, and no one leading for the role.

(Here’s a fun fact, though: The scenes the actors are reportedly reading for the role include the sugar cube scene where Finnick first meets Katniss and the scene where he hears Annie’s scream.)

Despite reports that Taylor KitschArmie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund are the three men in the running to play “Hunger Games” heartthrob Finnick Odair in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” don’t get too excited just yet — sources close to the production tell Zap2it that casting has just begun for the role, and that the three All-American dudes are by no means the only ones in the running.

E! Online reports that Kitsch, Hammer and Hedlund are the names Lionsgate wants, but 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. It’s easy to understand the mix-up — someone probably got their hands on the confidential memo going around that reveals the three men are currently on the shortlist of dudes we’d love to marry in a fantasy dream world. (Honestly, any list with those three guys on it is a win-win-win situation.)

 Also, Taylor Kitsch told LA Times that he’s not up for Finnick Role:

“Not going to happen,” the 31-year-old actor wrote in an email on Wednesday.
