Taylor Kitsch Shuts Down Finnick Odair Catching Fire Rumors

Taylor Kitsch might be down for fighting aliens in John Carter or…well, fighting more aliens in Battleship, but he apparently won’t be donning a skimpy golden fish net as tribute Finnick Odair in the Hunger Games‘ sequel Catching Fire. “Not going to happen,” he replied to Los Angeles Times writer Amy Kaufman in response to the rumors. Luckily, the casting notice for Catching Fire we spotted earlier this month read “Finnick Odair, male, mid-20s, very handsome, tall, tan skin, bronze hair, green eyes,” so that only leaves…oh jeez, virtually every young actor in Hollywood.

Well, except Robert Pattinson, of course. “I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent. My agent was like, ‘No.’ [My agent] was like, ‘No one’s going to offer you that part.’ I was like, ‘Thanks for the reassurance,’ ” the Cosmopolis start told MTV this week. Meanwhile E! Online reported that the casting had been whittled down to Armie Hammer, Garrett Hedlund and Kitsch, and a vocal group of fans has been hyping Cabin In The Woods star Jesse Williams as a possible casting pick. What do you think? Who do you want to see wielding a trident on the big screen next year?
