Deadline Reporting Sam Claflin in the Lead for Finnick
Deadline is reporting that although Sam Claflin had a prior scheduling conflict for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, he’s cleared it up and is now in the lead for the role of Finnick Odair. What do you guys think? I’m trying really hard to think positive, but it’s still really hard.
Sam Claflin has been the favorite, but he had a problem with an option owed to another studio the presented date problems. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter stars Ben Walker, Boyd Holbrook and Tyler Hoechlin were the other competitors for that role, but it looks now like things have cleared for Claflin and that he’ll play the role. You’ve seen him in Snow White and the Huntsman and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
