Please let it be Finnick, please just let it be Finnick! Unfortunately, the role of Finnick remains uncast, but we do have some exciting news regarding the casting of one of the other tributes!
Amanda Plummer has been cast as Wiress, the rather unusual tribute from District 3. She’s the one who hardly speaks except to repeat “Tick tock," which eventually helps Katniss uncover the secret of the Hunger Games arena. You might recognize her from the Disney movie GET A CLUE. Amanda Plummer is actually the daughter of the famous and incredibly talented Canadian actor, Christopher Plummer.
In related news, the latest actor who has become a possible candidate for the role of Finnick is none other than Grant Gustin, who plays Sebastian on GLEE. To be honest, we think he’d be great for the part! He admits to have already auditioned, but says that the producers haven’t decided on who they want for Finnick yet. Good grief! It seems like we won’t know who will play Finnick until THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE hits theatres in November 2013.
