The wait is over for who will play Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Englishman Sam Claflin has been chosen to face Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss character when she returns to the arena. Claflin joins newcomers Jena Malone – who will play Johanna Mason – and Lynn Cohen as Mags.
The 26-year-old has had past big film roles including Snow White & The Huntsman and Pirates of the Carribbean: On Stranger Tides.
He recently finished filming The Quiet Ones opposite Jarred Harris, and Mary & Martha, in which he co-stars with Hilary Swank.
Production starts next month in Atlanta and Hawaii. The film comes out on November 22, 2013.
Claflin is a cutie and no doubt he’ll be gaining many fans when the movie comes out!
