Catching Fire is due to start filming this fall and the first new casting decision has been made.  It seems Justin Timberlake has scored the coveted role of Finnick Odair, the Tribute from District 4.

Director Gary Ross says he couldn’t be happier that Timberlake has agreed to take on the part of Finnick.

“I loved what he did in Social Network and thought that he could really bring something special to the role of Finnick.  We are so excited that he’s joining the cast.”

So what do you think?   Are you happy about the latest news?  Do you think Justin Timberlake will make a good Finnick?

  7. hunger games fan says:

    i will literally not watch Catching Fire if this is true, just putting that out there. Unless JT just pulled acting skills out of his butt, there is no way that he could pull off this role. Just Saying.

  17. Ayse says:

  18. Ayse says:


    you know how they do those modeling kind of shots, like “the men of the hunger games”
    LOL imagine Justin Timberlake standing next to josh and Liam… hes going to out age them bad!!!! and make them look like babies! :\
    wtf did he do in the audition? did he have to do and audition? if not Gary Ross may be getting a bit over excited about how big the hunger games is. calm down buddy, where did you pull this one out from, your ass?

  19. ArenaRunner says:

    This is too funny because im going to be really upset if he gets Finnick.

  20. hunger games fan says:

    i would love to know where you got this information because i just read an article about how there was another article that played april fool’s jokes on the Hunger games cast. for example, they said JHutch wasn’t coming back for the second movie and Jennifer Lawrence did not like the outcome of the movie so will not be doing the second movie. So, if this information came from that article, it is most likely false, just saying

  21. Zoe Allen says:

    I will stab myself with a trident, Finnick style, if JT is playing my boy.

  22. Blue Icicle says:

  24. Gabriel says:

    Is this a April Fool’s joke, right?

  25. Hannah says:

    There is no way this is true!!! I Don’t want him to play Finnick!!!! Come on!!! There are others that are way better for the part!!!!!!!!!!

  26. erica says:

    April fools!!!!!!………………….i hope…………..if this is true i will hav to burn my team finnick shirt

  27. Chantelle says:

    If this is an April Fool’s joke its not nearly as funny as it could have been. Could totally see Justin Timberlake as Finnick…. woulda been funnier if they put Robert Pattinson…. I would have cried and refused to see Catching Fire if this were the case. lol but seriously, wouldn’t mind him as Finnick….

  28. Chantelle says:

    Truly curious though, Real or Not Real?

  30. Kaylee L says:

    I think its april fools guys. no worries. I checked IMDb and i looked on the internet. They don’t have a casting list yet. plus it said that they didn’t have auditions yet.

  31. Tuti says:

    freaking hilarious

  32. Ren says:

  33. der says:

  34. Ayse says:

    wait i’m confused, is it a joke or not???

    please be a joke!

  35. Christalyn says:

    lawl at everyone who thought it was real.

  36. judini says:

    better TIMBERLAKE than BIEBER!

  37. D.D. says:

    THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!! I really sincerely hope he is NOT cast. Finnick is supposed to be an attractive playboy… Justin Timberlake is ‘ugh’. I’m gonna start praying that he isn’t Fin….

  38. Anon says:

    Honestly, I don’t see what’s wrong with this at all… I think JT is a great actor! (After seeing Friends with Benefits) Even if this a joke… I couldn’t really imagine anyone else better. But of course, that’s just my opinion.
