If you've been following the casting scoop for the much-loved Finnick Odair, you knew he was a contender, but now it's official. Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman) will play Finnick in Catching Fire, the sure to be a hit sequel to The Hunger Games.
I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. Calflin was alright as a preacher in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but in Snow White, he was a sort of bland character without the charisma a role like Finnick requires. That could simply be because he wasn't the main character (the Huntsman) I'll just have to reserve judgement until the movie comes out. Sadly, I'll have to wait a while, seeing as Katniss and crew doesn't hit theaters until November 2013.
