‘Weeds’ Star Hunter Parrish Up For Role of Finnick Odair

Last we joined Finnick-watch 2012, Armie Hammer (Mirror, Mirror) was topping the short list for the role of Finnick Odair in next year’s Catching Fire. Garrett Hedlund (TRON: Legacy) was also in the running, but now a third actor has been thrown into the ring.

Hunter Parrish, who plays Silas on Weeds, said in an interview with The Daily Beast that he is up for the part. After being disappointed by being passed over for the role of Peeta in the first film, he’s trying not to get his hopes up, but by the interviewer’s description, he seems to really want it.

To be honest, if I got to choose based on these three guys, I’d go with Hedlund. Parrish just doesn’t quite strike me as the Capitol’s notorious ladies man.
