I’m thinking that it’s possible that Grant hasn’t been told whether he’s coming back for season 3 or 4 yet because they’re preparing for him having to leave to film Catching Fire…
Can I just say that you guys really shouldn’t freak out about rumours over who is being cast as Finnick.
Just wait until Lionsgate confirms it :)
Just searched up “Catching Fire auditions and casting calls” on Google and found out that casting is happening soon, and it’ll be posted on this website:
Anonymous said: I hate how those people are just voting for joey because they like him it really annoys me as i really want grant to be finnick not for the fact that i love him but i genuinely could not see anyone else as finnick and i really need him to play finnick otherwise when catching fire comes out i won't be able to relate to the character of finnick at all and that worries me as he is one character i really love and need to be perfect
YES, all of this is exactly how I feel.
I also hate it when people say we shouldn’t be fancasting Grant just because he’s “a pretty face”, and that he isn’t capable of playing emotional depth.
it’s like saying that if Armie Hammer or Garrett Hedlund had only been in a couple episodes on a medium-popular tv show, that they would have no chance at ever being to portray Finnick. But they’ve been in several movies and because of those several movies we’ve been able to see their acting skills a lot, and that’s why people fancast them.
Me and you (and probably a lot of other people), can not see anyone except for Grant as Finnick. I myself fancast him before I had accepted that Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson were Katniss and Peeta. To me, he looks to be the perfection of Finnick, and he does look 24- it’s just that Jen and Josh look 18-20, when they’re supposed to be 16. But Grant as Finnick, I will never not unsee. And the twins on CSI and the plot change for Sebastian on Glee have proved it even more to me that Grant could kill as Finnick.
I’m trying not to judge Armie Hammer, Garrett Hedlund, Joey Graceffa and the others as Finnick, because obviously other people have their own views on what Finnick looks like, and pictured him differently. Suzanne Collins didn’t give give us all the minute details, so it should be understandable why all these fancasts are really different.
Sorry, I just felt like writing that out somewhere, and since you sent this question and there wasn’t much I could say in reply, I decided to write all of my philosophies of wisdom (sarcasm lol, idek if half of that made sense) here.
Also guys, feel free to send us asks in reply and join on this discussion! :)

Found this on the MTV Fancasting Finnick Poll, and I think this is the best explanation for the whole “EW GRANT CAN’T PLAY FINNICK HE LOOKS TO YOUNG FINNICK IS 24 GRANT LOOKS LIKE A TEENAGER” tiff that I’ve ever read. And they said it without bashing any of the other fancasts.
Four for you Sam, you go Sam.

There’s no word on casting yet, but I do know that Catching Fire is supposed to be released on November 22nd 2013, so we’ll probably find out who our Finnick is a couple of months before then :)
