Okay, this is official news, people! Sam Claflin is cast as Finnick Odair in Catching Fire. Fans of the book-turned-movie series have been discussing this possible choice for months --he's definitely been one of the actor names in the mix. Most recently, this guy played the prince in Snow White and the Huntsman and you might also recognize him from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but as this favorite character in the Hunger Games, you'll see Sam represent District 4 for the Quarter Quell. Many of you know that this character is extremely handsome, he's tall, muscular and athletic with tan skin, bronze-colored hair and incredible sea green eyes. Finnick is a natural beauty who is quite flirtatious -- hence, why the ladies of the Capitol are in love with him. Keep in mind that he's quite the fighter -- thanks to his fisherman training with the trident -- and he's a force to be reckoned with during the 75th annual Hunger Games competition. So we are definitely looking forward to seeing Sam opposite Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, but what about you? Let us know your thoughts on this casting choice by posting below. I'm Dana Ward in Hollywood and thanks so much for watching ClevverTV. Bye!

For everyone who doubted his ability, he is the perfect Finnick, no actor would be better than him. :)

I don't like this guy playing Finnick....really....the guy from Snow White and POTC4? seriously?
NO. Grant Gustin will ALWAYS be Finnick for me, I don't give a fuck who is casted as the real one. Especially that guy.
Muscular, athletic, tan, bronze hair, sea green eyes...no wait, I totally see it now. NOT!
I love how she is describing Finnick just as the book says: Handsome, tall, muscular and athletic with tan skin, bronze colored hair with incredible green eyes.... And Sam Claflin looks NOTHING like that. I'm a little confused as to why he was even a choice for Finnick. 
Huh. He's not exactly how I pictured Finnick, but I hope he does a good job anyway.
