Sam Claflin Playing Finnick Odair in Catching Fire?

Truth rating: 7

By Daniel Gates


Is Sam Claflin set to portray Finnick Odair in Catching Fire?

According to a flurry of reports, the Snow White and the Huntsman actor is either the “frontrunner” or on the “short list” to play Finnick in the hugely anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games.

There’s been no confirmation yet that Claflin and producers are in formal negotiations, nor has Lionsgate commented on the rumor.

Gossip Cop has reached out for confirmation of Clafin’s “frontrunner” status.

If Claflin winds up with the coveted role, he’d join Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amanda Plummer and other recent additions to the Catching Fire cast, which will eventually employ virtually everyone in Hollywood.

Would you like to see Claflin in the role?
