Catching Fire Casting - Sam Clafin as Finnick Odair

As it has been rumored since early July, English actor Sam Claflin has nabbed the highly sought-after role of Finnick Odair in Catching Fire. Claflin isn’t exactly a household name quite yet (although this role will undoubtedly make him one), but you may have seen him on the silver screen recently in Snow White and the Huntsman.

In Catching Fire, Finnick Odair draws unease from Katniss the very first time she meets him. He is the victorious tribute of the 65th Games and a resident of District 4 . . . although he’s become a favorite in the Capital in the last ten years. Katniss soon learns that his bronzed good looks and unabashed manner hide a much deeper side — one that she eventually connects with.
