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.

    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!!!!!!!

    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.
