The Catching Fire casting rumors continue. This time ShockYa says it has the exclusive scoop on who is being considered to play Brutus in The Hunger Games sequel. They say that Kevin Durand and Victor Gojcaj are competing for the role.
We were emailed directly with the information that Victor Gojcaj (“The Taking of Pelham 123,” “Unstoppable”) is currently in negotiations to star in “Catching Fire” as Brutus!
Gojcaj doesn’t have the role outright just yet–he’s competing with Kevin Durand for the role in the film. Kevin Nash, a former WWF fighter, was also considered for the role.
For those who are not aware of Brutus, he is a character that has been described as a brutally physical person who happily volunteered for the 75th Hunger Games, citing his love for action.
The rumor comes straight after news that Kevin Nash had told a USA Today reporter that he was up for a role in The Hunger Games: Catchibng Fire, with most of us speculating that he may be in talks for the role of Brutus, based on his physicality and his background in wrestling. Again, we can only just wait and see.
