Fans of the "Hunger Games" now know what former Hunger Games champion Finnick Odair will look like in the second film, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," due out in November 2013 -- he'll look like British-born Sam Claflin, who just signed on to play the dashing character, EW.com reports. Lionsgate announced the choice yesterday.
In Suzanne Collins's second book, "Catching Fire," Finnick joins main characters Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) in the ring for the 75th annual Hunger Games, also known as the Quarter Quell. The former District 4 winner is charming, handsome, and skilled with a trident.
