Sam Claflin: Cast as Finnick in Catching Fire?

by at . Comments

Has the most anticipated new role in Catching Fire finally been cast?

Following chatter over pretty much every hunk in Hollywood - from Taylor Kitsch to Trevor Donovan to Armie Hammer - Variety reports that Lionsgate has gone with the somewhat surprising selection of Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair.

The actor, recently seen opposite Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman, would come on board the sequel as an especially cocky, suave, sexy Tribute who interacts frequently with Katniss and Peeta.

Meanwhile… with Amanda Plummer set as Wiress, Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee and Jena Malone as Johanna, the magazine also says Melissa Leo is the frontrunner to portray Mags, while Tony Shalhoub is being courted for the role of Beetee.

Is Sam Claflin the right choice for Finnick?
