NEWS: Finnick Odair casting for Catching Fire, NOT down to 3 actors according to Zap2It

E! Online reported yesterday that the casting for the role of Finnick Odair in Catching Fire was down to the "final 3" fan favorite actors - Armie Hammer, Garret Hedlund and Taylor Kitsch. However, Zap2It just reported that while the 3 are in the fight for the role, casting just began yesterday (May 29th) and includes a lot of actors, famous ones and unknowns.

… sources close to the production tell Zap2it that casting has just begun for the role, and that the three All-American dudes are by no means the only ones in the running.
E! Online reports that Kitsch, Hammer and Hedlund are the names Lionsgate wants, but Zap2it’s source says nobody’s in the lead just yet considering talks only began on Tuesday (May 29). Actors are still reading for the role, and the studio is strongly considering bringing in an unknown to avoid ego clashes on set. It’s easy to understand the mix-up — someone probably got their hands on the confidential memo going around that reveals the three men are currently on the shortlist of dudes we’d love to marry in a fantasy dream world. (Honestly, any list with those three guys on it is a win-win-win situation.)
… The scenes the actors are reportedly reading for the role include the sugar cube scene where Finnick first meets Katniss and the scene where he hears Annie’s scream.
Either way, this could only mean one thing Hunger Gamers. We might FINALLY be meeting our Finnick Odair in a few days. So, stay tuned!
