Last week we turned our attention to the more adult cast that will be stepping into roles in Catching Fire. This week we are going to continue to talk about casting, but turn our attention to the fancasting of characters.
It is almost inevitable that fans of the series have come up with their own picks for the actors they want to fulfill all the new roles in Catching Fire. Whether it’s Finnick, Johanna, Beetee, Wiress, Plutarch, Enobaria or Brutus, fans debate and campaign for who they hope will step into each role. Even as fan sites, we get into the discussion as well, talking about possible choices on the Hunger Games Fireside Chat and our weekly Finding Finnick Odair feature.
Overall, we don’t know what kind of an impact these “fancasts” have on the final choice for the character, but discuss we will, just in case Lionsgate, Francis Lawrence and the casting directors are listening in on our conversations. But do fans really know who is best for each character? No real “fan favorites” were chosen for The Hunger Games, though many had the opportunity to meet/audition for the film. Yet overall people seem to agree that they cast the right actors for the roles. So, this brings us to this week’s question.
