Hunger Games: Three In Frame For Finnick Role

Website reports decision could be made this week on Catching Fire star...

The search for a suitable candidate to play Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire has been narrowed down to three actors, it has been reported.

E! Online reckons that Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund are the three names in the frame for the much-coveted role - playing a former Hunger Games winner who befriends Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen.

Robert Pattinson had been linked to the role, but has now ruled himself out.

E! quoted an insider as saying that a decision could be made by the end of this week, but also claims another source says unknown actors are being considered.

Armie Hammer played the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network and is set to star in The Lone Ranger next year.

Taylor Kitsch starred in Battleship, played Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and played Tim Riggins in Friday Night Lights.

Garrett Hedlund appeared in Troy, Tron: Legacy and co-stars with Kristen Stewart in her new movie On The Road.
