Sam Claflin has been cast as the charasmatic and clever former Hunger Games champion Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
After breaking out in his role as the romantic lead in last year’s Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Claflin starred in the box office smash Snow White and the Huntsman playing Prince William alongside Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. He recently finished filming The Quiet Ones opposite Jarred Harris, and Mary & Martha, in which he co-stars with Hilary Swank.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has sold more than 50 million books in print and digital in the U.S. alone.
Lionsgate will release The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on November 22, 2013.
