Jesse can’t be Finnick because he doesn’t have bronze hair/long hair/(insert menial detail here), but (insert random white dude) just needs to put in some contacts and dye their hair and volia! Fits character description. Am I getting that right?
I support Jesse as Finnick. The people complaining about him didn't have shit to say when a white, blonde, busty girl was cast as Katniss Everdeen. Jesse could play the role perfectly and the unbelievers deserve to diaf.
Totally agreed. I think that Jennifer Lawrence did a great job even tho she didn’t totally match what we saw in our heads (Peeta… :/ but it’s ok!) I think that we need to get out of our heads and let Finnick Be great (copyright Kanye West)!! I think that Jesse would make him great!
I was joking about wanting Zac Efron, don't worry. Seeing Jesse Williams, I don't agree with him being Finnick. He's incredible in Grey's Anatomy and I respect him very much as an actor, I just don't personally see him as the part of Finnick. The same way I don't see Liam as Gale.
Totally understand. Everyone is entitled to see who they want as Finnick and at the end it’s not up to us but the casting directors! Obviously I want Jesse Williams but I’d still see the movie regardless of who they cast!
Can I just say that this campaign makes my heart sing? As soon as someone suggested this casting to me for the first time, I couldn't see a way it didn't make perfect sense! I really hope that this campaign isn't totally bogged down by the bullshit racism of previous campaigns before it, (see, Donald for Spiderman) and that people can come to see that Jesse Williams fits this role to an absolute tee!
thanks sooo much. I’m so grateful for all the support it’s getting!
“Well well well Mr. Williams. I did not know who you were before this post but let me just say on behalf of my instantly dropped panties, nice to meet you. If you don’t get the job, you are more than welcome to star in my own private adaptation of the Hunger Games I just happen to be hosting in my pants.”—TreatYoSelf From Jezebel
Jesse Williams is really hot and his freckles make him perfect for it I think…
See, I personally sort of imagined Finnick as having some Irish in him ‘cause of the sea green eyes (not to mention the name), so yes I thought he was probably (at least half white). Williams is half Swedish, can that not be enough to quiet the racists?
Jesse for Finnick!
There couldn’t be a much better choice out there.
It is NOT a joke. In Fact it is VERY serious. Why do you want Zac Efron? He’s blonder Blue Eyed and the same age as Jennifer Lawrence. Finnick is Dark Bronze Hair, SEA GREEN Eyes and 7/8 years older than Jennifer. That is Jesse Williams to a TEE!
Going through Hunger Games tags, it appears that along with Robert Pattinson (a false alarm, apparently), Jesse Williams has been rumoured to be taking the role of Finnick. Naturally, there are a hell of a lot of fans suddenly saying, “I’m not racist, but…” before saying something racist. (Where…
So these are some guys who I’ve seen floated around the Internet to play Finnick Odair in the next “Hunger Games” movies. From the top we have: Chace Crawford (“Gossip Girl”), Ian Somerhalder (“The Vampire Diaries”), Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”), and Armie Hammer (“The Social…
I really, really want Jesse Williams to play Finnick Odair in the Catching Fire movie. He has the beautiful sea green eyes, he’s got the bronze look, and he can easily dye his hair. Plus Finnick is supposed to be 24 and Jesse doesn’t look over twenty-something at all. Let’s make this a thing guys.
