Hunter Parrish Responds to Finnick Odair Rumors

by at . Comments

Hunter Parrish came oh-so-close to being cast as Peeta in The Hunger Games, so the actor knows to be careful this time around. He's trying not to get his hopes up.

However, the Weeds star is aware fans have started a campaign to attach him to Catching Fire in the role of Finnick Odair and he's attempt to remain humble, but...

"I think you just kind of step back, and if it happens, it happens," Parrish tells MTV of the rumor. "I'm not going to really spend too much time thinking about it, but I'd love to... I'm a fan of the books. I think there's fantastic actors that would probably be better. So there's that for getting me a job!"

It had previously been reported that three actors - Taylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund and Armie Hammer - were the finalists for the character, but the job appears to be wide open.

Do you think Parrish would be right for Finnick?


Its going to be the unknown actor Jay Hector. His identical to Finnicks describtion. I'm openly saying his beautiful and rugged, physically perfect and has sea green eyes. I heard its him or Alex Pettyfer


NO! He doesn't look rugged enough to be Finnick. I think Armie Hammer :D


i really don't get why people want finnick to look old... isn't he supposed to be 'glowing' with youth?? with that said, HUNTER FOR FINNICK!!!!


He looks too young for Finnick! I'd still go for Garrett Hedlund!!!


Of course he's perfect!! No question about that!
