We have more casting, both confirmed and rumored, for Catching Fire. The confirmed part is that Amanda Plummer has secured the role of Wiress, a former tribute and winner from District 3. Plummer joins fellow confirmed actors Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jena Malone.
The rumored is that Tony Shalhoub (Monk, Galaxy Quest) is in negotiations for the role of Beetee. Melissa Leo was rumored for the role of Mags but a few sources have said that it isn't going to happen, so I guess Leo is off the hook as far as rumors go.
And perhaps the biggest rumor yet is that there is an actor in final negotiations to play the much anticipated role of Finnick Odair... and his name is Sam Claflin. You might remember him from such films as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Snow White and the Huntsman. I saw him in both of those films and with that I will say that this potential casting doesn't bother me. I think he is attractive enough for the role, in comparison to the book description, and would do a decent job. He is a better choice than some, like when Robert Pattinson was rumored, so I wouldn't bitch too much if he winds up securing the role.
