Armie Hammer Taylor Kitsch Garrett Hedlund Catching Fire

Well, with Robert Pattinson putting paid to rumors that he was in the race for the role of Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," let the shortlist stories commence!

The folks over at E! have heard that Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund are "the top three names being bantered about" at the studio as they hope to lock down a casting decision this week. Whether that means formal overturns have been made or if it's all wishlist at this point remains to be seen, but it's an interesting bunch to be sure. Hammer is already a co-lead in next year's "The Lone Ranger" opposite Johnny Depp so joining the second installment of a franchise would be...odd. As for Kitsch, he's already seen two big movies with his name attached run aground -- "John Carter" and "Battlehship." So perhaps chalk this one up to the power of his agents for keeping his name being talked about, but if the offer comes his way, he might want to consider accepting it. Finally, Hedlund led "Tron: Legacy" without much fanfare but did show he has chops to spare in "On The Road" and of the three seems to make the most sense. But here's the thing...

...E! is also hearing that the studio might go with a total unknown. So what does this all mean? Nobody really knows anything. Lionsgate is staying typically mum as are the reps, so who knows? But what do the fans think? Are any of these guys a good fit for Finnick? Who would you like to see in the role?
