Hunger Games: Catching Fire Casting News! And the Role of Finnick Odair Goes To…

All right, so now that we've ruled out Robert Pattinson as a contender for the coveted role of Finnick Odair in the upcoming Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, who are the front-runners to join Jennifer Lawrence and company in filming the follow-up to this mega-smash movie?

A source tells E! Online that the role of the headstrong and extremely good-looking former Hunder Games champ is being duked out by three equally good-looking actors, namely The Social Network's Armie Hammer, Battleship's Taylor Kitsch (eek), and Tron's Garrett Hedlund.

With filming looming at summer's end, the final casting announcement could come as early as next week, but these things are about as predictable as the Reapings before the Hunger Games; the franchise's studio, Lionsgate, may very well call upon a complete unknown for this pivotal role.

Can't wait to see who will take on the role of Finnick? You just may have no other choice. Lionsgate is notoriously cagey about releasing casting news, and the film doesn't come out until Thanksgiving 2013. Meanwhile, vote for your favorite among the three front-runners below!
