Episode 68 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live this Monday, July 23, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol, Crystal from Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net, Tiffany from Victor’s Village, and Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Almost Thirty!
– We’ll kick off the show by recapping the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, which are set to air on Sunday night in the U.S. How did The Hunger Games fare?
– Next, we’ll welcome the amazing Amanda Plummer to the franchise! We learned last Tuesday that Amanda will be playing Wiress, and we couldn’t be more excited about this casting decision. Let us know in the comments what you think about Amanda — we’ll share as many of your opinions as we can!
Update: We’ll also briefly talk about Jena Malone and welcome her to the cast as Johanna! Since we already did an entire episode centered around Jena and the possibility of her playing Johanna, we won’t spend too much time on this.
– We’ll then turn our attention to Sam Claflin, who is rumored to have been offered the role of Finnick. We first talked about Sam on Episode 63 after Lainey Gossip reported that he had auditioned. Now Zap2it is claiming that he has been offered the role, and according to Gossip Cop, he has accepted. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THESE ARE RUMORS. Contrary to a lot of the headlines that have been floating around out there, Sam Claflin has NOT been officially cast as Finnick. To stay abreast of all OFFICIAL casting news, follow @lionsgatenews on Twitter and keep an eye on CatchingFireCasting.com. And, of course, make sure you’re following US on Twitter and Facebook as everything we report will come directly from Lionsgate.
Leave a comment and let us know if you think Sam would be a good Finnick!
– Lastly, we’ll chat with YouTuber extraordinaire CassJayTuck (real name: Cassidy Tucker) about her love of the series and a certain lovesick baker that has taken up residence in her home. (For a taste of what Cassidy is all about, check out her Hunger Games movie reaction or her “How to Get the Fangirl Look” tutorial!)
