Casting for the second installment of “The Hunger Games” franchise just started and fans are going crazy with ideas. Despite reports that Taylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund, and Armie Hammer are in the running to play heartthrob Finnick Odair in “Catching Fire”, sources tell PopStop TV News that the three actors are not the only ones being considered by Lionsgate.
One actor who’s been getting a lot of buzz for his latest movie “The Apparition” has told us exclusively he’d be very interested in playing the integral role! British star Tom Felton is ready to ditch his antagonist Draco Malfoy image for a much more handsome part.
The 24-year-old “Harry Potter” star revealed that he’s a big “Hunger Games” fan. “I was there at the Hunger Games premiere,” Tom told me exclusively. “I was very impressed. My girlfriend is an avid reader of the books and told me that I had to go and see this film. It’s awesome. It speaks for itself and the I can’t wait for the next one.”
So, would he want a part in “Catching Fire”? “For sure,” Tom dished. “I’ve been reading into this Finnick character. He’s a pretty awesome character. You never know! Fingers crossed. One day, you never know.”
Not only is Tom the same age as Finnick, his stunning eyes and roguishly handsome brown hair is very close to Finnick’s physical description. His arrogant mannerisms and elitist attitude as Draco in the Harry Potter franchize convinced us he can play the superficial soldier.
