The Hunger Games: Catching Fire casts Sam Claflin as Finnick

Lionsgate has apparently cast the all-important role of Finnick Odair in the sequel to The Hunger Games, the victor from District 4 who is best known for being a bit of a firecracker and also for being very, very handsome. Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman) has reportedly snagged the role, beating out bigger names like Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund. Zap2It asks if this is the Finnick we pictured, and actually... yes! Cut his hair a bit shorter, and he comes pretty darn close. (via Zap2It)


  1. while reading, I’ve kind of pictured him with blonde hair… and a bit younger.. I am probably wrong (I tend to skim over the descriptions of character).. or, I suppose they could always dye his hair.

  2. Yeah I thought he was blonde too but maybe my brain is playing tricks on me. I also pictured someone slightly less….err…..pretty? Oh cripes it’s all so subjective isn’t it.
