There has been a great deal of discussion on who should be our Finnick Odair in ‘Catching Fire‘. Many stars have spoken out about their interest, like Zac Efron, Grant Gustin, Jesse Williams and Chace Crawford. But not much attention has been given to Trevor Donovan. The ’90210′ actor tells The Advocate, he is incredibly interested in the role. Read what he had to say in the interview and tell us, what do you think?
Perez Hilton has started an unofficial campaign to get you cast as Finnick in the next Hunger Games movie. Thoughts?
I’m humbled and honored, but most of all excited, because Mario [Lavandeira, a.k.a. Perez] is a good guy. All actors have a dream role; playing Finnick Odair is mine. I know the odds are stacked against me. I’ll be going up against big stars like Zac Efron and Armie Hammer, but you know what, I want it more and am very passionate about it, it’s not just another job to me, it’s much more than that. I’m not saying that it is for them. I was a fan before anyone knew the Hunger Games series would be made into movies. I read all the books the day they first came out and knew right there and then I wanted to play Finnick. I’m definitely the underdog in this race, but I’m committed and going to give it all I’ve got. As Effie Trinket says, “May the odds be ever in your favor.”
You tell us! Could Trevor Donovan be your Finnick Odair?
