    Better than Jamie Bower who was cast as Jace in TMI. Still not over that fail of a casting. At least Sam’s cute.

    I like Sam, I really do, but I just don’t see it. My biggest complaint is the height, just like it was with Josh. Josh practically is Peeta, so I got over it, but Finnick is supposed to be pretty tall and Sam is only 2 inches taller than Jennifer :/

    @Kat:
    I know you’re upset that Sam wasn’t who you imagined as Finnick, but if something as silly as his height upsets you, I truly feel bad for you.

    @Allie: Did I say I was upset? No; I only said he wasn’t what I pictured from how Finnick is described. Big difference.

    You people are sick .-. There is an invention called hair dye. The main characters used it. I pictured Garret Hedlund for Finninck. But you never know. People were hating in the cast for the last film, but they were proven wrong. The directors had a feeling he was Finnick from the moment they casted him. So shut up about his hair color and crap. Didn’t you know that some of the OTHER actors have different color eyes and hair? Josh has brown or hazel eyes (not sure which one, I’m not a stalker), Willow has hazel eyes. When both of their characters should have had blue eyes. But they did friggen amazing. They only care about acting skills, not ” Oh she has blonde hair, let’s not cast her.” Really? That’s such a childish thing to say, so suck it up and wait for the movie.

    Tbh I don’t think he fits the role at all, from what I’ve read… Finnick is a stunning male and tbh I don’t think this guy lives up to the character in the book, personally I would of went with someone like Zac Efron or someone like him.
