Books into Movies: The Hunger Games - Catching Fire (Sam Claflin Confirmed as Finnick)

catchingfire - square So the time has finally come. Finnick Odair has been cast. Who earned one of the most coveted roles? Sam ClaflinFor those of you who've been listening to rumors, this may not be much of a surprise. You may remember the actor from the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean installment or from Snow White and the Huntsman (where he played Prince Charming). And lucky Claflin just landed another charmed role. Continue reading for more details!

All I can say is...FINALLY! I've been waiting so long for Finnick to be officially announced that the shock has worn off. Claflin wouldn't have been my first choice for Finnick. I was leaning towards Armie Hammer or Hunter Parrish. But Claflin is an amazing actor, and I'm happy with the choice. Plus, I can't wait for him to team up with Jena Malone in a Finnick/Johanna pairing during the games!

What do you think? Happy with the choice? Or did you have another actor in mind? Sound off below!

  1. *sigh* I'm just not that thrilled about this casting... I definitely remember him from Snow White but I can't "for the life of me" remember who he played in PotC. LOL.
