Eye Candy Monday
Ending weeks of speculation, Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman) has officially been cast as the dashing former Hunger Games champion Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Lionsgate announced today. The British-born Claflin, 24, had been the front-runner for the coveted role since mid-July.
Of all the new characters in Catching Fire, Finnick looms largest. After he won his Hunger Games for District 4 when he was 14 thanks to his prowess with a trident, Finnick’s rakish good looks and louche charm helped him become something of a celebrity in the Capitol. (Mild Spoilers Ahead!) -imbd
He was in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, PILLARS OF THE EARTH. To name a few.
He could have been a talented footballer, but he broke both ankles at 16. So he took his chance at acting, getting a degree in the performing arts.
Oddly, there is something Matthew Lillard about his smile and then suddenly I think, of course, he could be Nick Hoult's cousin, or something.
