Sam Claflin will play Finnick Odair in <strong><em>The Hunger Games: Catching Fire</em></strong>
Casting for the coveted role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has come to an end, with Sam Claflin chosen for the role. Melissa Leo and Tony Shalhoub have also been mentioned as front runners to play Mags and Beetee.

Back in May, we reported that Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch, and Garrett Hedlund were the front runners for the role, although it seems now that Sam Claflin has won the role.

Finnick Odair is the District 4 tribute who won the 65th Annual Hunger Games, and returns to the battlefield for the Quarter Quell, where past Hunger Games victors battle each other. Mags was Finnick's mentor when he first won The Hunger Games at the age of 14, one of the youngest winners in Panem history. She volunteers to join the Quarter Quell in the place of Finnick's lover, Annie Cresta. Beetee is an inventor nicknamed Bolts by Johanna Mason (Jena Malone), due to his electrifying weapons.

Lionsgate has not confirmed that any of these actors have been offered roles yet or not.
