The dish: It appears that Ben Walker, Boyd Holbrook and Tyler Hoechlin (of MTV’s “Teen Wolf“) were all named as possible contenders for the role of Finnick—a veritable buffet of choice gentleman who would have all done quite nicely to fill the part of the trident-wielding District 4 golden boy!
But alas, it’s all academic at this point, because whatever contract-related obstacle that was standing between Sam Claflin and an official deal-sealing for the role has been (reportedly) taken care of. Which means that it shouldn’t be long before the announcement comes from Lionsgate that Sam is on board, really for real… and depending upon your feelings about the three sexy manbeasts we just mentioned, this is either the best news yet or the most disappointing thing ever. Hooray/sorry.
So, which is it: yea, or nay for Sam nearing official confirmation in “Catching Fire”? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
