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...

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?

Parrish hasn't seen a script for the film based on Suzanne Collins' bestselling novel trilogy yet, but it's one of the most sought after roles in Hollywood. (Alex Pettyfer is also under consideration to play Peeta.) Jennifer Lawrence is the leading contender to portray Katniss Everdeen.

Said Parrish of the outpouring of support he's received on Twitter: "You don't get much better than that. The true fans of the book. So regardless of whether I'm a part of the film or not, I feel honored to just sort of be thought of."

What do you think? Would this 23-year star be a good fit as Mellark?

"It's not true," says Weeds star Hunter Parrish to Us Weekly regarding a Star Magazine report that he's dating new guest star, Mary-Kate Olsen.

Perhaps the Full House vet is just too frickin' weird talented.

"She's a very good actress," Hunter Parrish says. "And fun to work with... I'm sure we'll laugh about these rumors this week!"

Hunter Parrish and Mary-Kate Olsen: more than co-stars?

All we know is that Parrish is responsible for some great Weeds quotes, and that the show's star, Mary-Louise Parker, is one of our favorites. And that Mary-Kate really needs some sort of style consultant. Or a mirror to start!
