Sam Claflin: Finnick Odair in 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire'?

Sam Claflin has reportedly been offered the pivotal role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!

The 26-year-old actor, who recently starred opposite Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman, is being lined up for the role, according to Variety.

Finnick is the youngest person to have won the Hunger Games and is not trusted by Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) until he (SPOILER!) saves Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) after he runs into a force field during the Quarter Quell.

Oscar winner Melissa Leo is the frontrunner for the role of Mags, while Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub is being courted for the role of Beetee.

It was recently announced that Amanda Plummer landed the role of Wiress and that Philip Seymour Hoffman will play Plutarch Heavensbee.

The finnik omari charm is inside. Its the charisma he oozes as for this choice in sam, you see it through his eyes… He’s got it written all over him. The man is going to smash hit out the ballpark! Get ready for Claflin mania…

Welp… that does it. Really hope it isn’t true, but hey, who knows. I won’t say that I love the guy… but it’s not his fault :P Blame Lionsgate.

I don’t know how much stock I put in this report. Since they went with an actual old lady to play Mags, and not Melissa Leo or even someone in her age range…I will wait til they post it on the Hunger Games fb page.

Sam ciaflin is the absolute worst choice for Finnick. Everyone should resoundingly complain that this will ruin the remaining Hunger Games movies. Anyone who has read the books knows this and anyone seeing the movie seeing what the character Finnick does will see it. Sam is too frail, not nearly muscular enough. Finnick is also supposed to be so incredibly handsome – I mean extremely desirable. Come on casting director – do your job!!!!!!!

oh my god noooooo finnick has to be gorg and tbh hes is not help!!like come on !!! finnick is the most gorgeouse boy in panem and this fool like omfg gale (liam) is wayyy beter looking than him so thats gonna be dumm hair dye and contacts can only go soo far !!!!!!!!!!!!!! afghfshwgfdhedghegdyeyhdgehdgehdgehgdeuw

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! :’( CHRIS ZYLKA ALL THE WAY!! ANYONE ELSE WILL RUIN THE MOVIE FOR ME!!!! :’( AHHHHHHH LOOK UP PICS OF CHRIS ZYLKA HE IS PERFECTTTT!!!

@Kirsten: CHRIS ZYLKA ALL THE WAY! HE IS EXACTLY LIKE FINNICK IN REAL LIFE. HES PERFECT!! EVERYONE GOOGLE HIM RIGHT NOW AND SPREAD THE WORD!!! <333333333

Finnick is supposed to be gorgeous, tan, and buff. Claflin is only mildly attractive , scrawny, and pasty. He is not what everyone desires as described in the book. How can anyone even notice him when Gloss is asgorgeous as he is. Terrible.
