While nothing official has been announced by Lionsgate yet regarding the casting of Finnick, Zap2it claims they’ve learned that Sam Claflin has been offered the role and just has to accept now.
Sources tell Zap2it exclusively that the most coveted role in “The Hunger Games” sequel “Catching Fire” has been cast — and British actor Sam Claflin has got the gig. Official reps for the film won’t comment on the casting, but our reliable sources reveal that producer Nina Jacobson and Lionsgate have signed off on Clafin’s offer.
The British actor is best known for playing Kristen Stewart’s childhood sweetheart, William, in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” He also had a role in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” as Philip.
