Taylor Kitsch Finnick Odair Catching Fire

With the flurry of casting rumor surrounding Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, Taylor Kitsch spoke with the LA Times to nip his rumor in the bud. The star says he will not be playing the beloved victor in the coming movie.

Finnick Odair, described by author Suzanne Collins as an Adonis-like womanizer, first appears in “Catching Fire” and has a complex relationship with heroine Katniss Everdeen. So admirers of the series were thrown into a tizzy this week when E! News reported that filmmakers had narrowed down the casting to three heartthrobs: Taylor Kitsch, Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund.

But you can knock one of those dreamboats off the list, because Kitsch says he won’t be joining the cast of the mega-successful film series.

Not going to happen,” the 31-year-old actor wrote in an email on Wednesday. Kitsch, who is coming off the poor box office performance of the big-budget films “John Carter” and “Battleship,” would seem to have fit the bill for the athletic, good-looking character.
