RUMOR: Sam Claflin, Sandino Moreno & Cicely Tyson auditioned for Finnick, Johanna & Mags?

Lainey Gossip, the site that has been giving us reports recently such that Armie Hammer is director Francis Lawrence's choice for Finnick, and that Garret Hedlund really auditioned for the same role, continues to share more Catching Fire casting rumors today. Read Lainey's fresh scoop about the people who auditioned for Catching Fire roles.

NOTE: Again, none of this is confirmed. Everything remains a rumor until Lionsgate confirms any of them.

According to Lainey Gossip: 

As reported yesterday, Philip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the role of Plutarch. Interesting choice. He was, way back, my pick to play Haymitch. I’m also told that while Garrett Hedlund’s audition went very well for Finnick, Sam Claflin also read for it. So again, they’re trying to look at as many options as possible. And with some imagination too. I hear exclusively that Catalina Sandino Moreno was asked to audition for Johanna Mason. But this is inspired, non? I am excited about her. Please note however that nothing has been decided. These details are just meant to give you an idea of how wide their searches have been although my sources tell me they are seriously considering Cicely Tyson for Mags.

Sam Claflin who was most recently seen in the movie Snow White and the Hunstman playing as the Prince, for Finnick?

Catalina Sandino, most known as María Álvarez in the 2004 movie Maria Full of Grace, for Johanna?

and Cicely Tyson, most recently seen in the 2011 critically acclaimed movie, The Help for Mags?

What do you guys think? Do you like any of these actors for Catching Fire? Sound off on the comments below!
