Official Catching Fire Casting News

It’s official, Catching Fire has found it’s Finnick! The rumors that began months ago that British actor Sam Claflin would be playing District 4 tribute Finnick Odair can now be confirmed as true with Lionsgate sealed the deal. Claflin who has been in major movies such as this summer’s Snow White and the Huntsman and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides beat out other big names the likes of Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch, and Garrett Hedlund who all at one point were rumored to be up for the job. And it seems as if he’ll not only appear in Catching Fire, but seemingly both installments of the now-split Mockingjay finale to the Hunger Games Series. Catching Fire hits theaters Nov. 22, 2013.
