Claflin confirmed for Hunger Games

Sam Claflin has signed up to star in The Hunger Games sequel

Sam Claflin will be taking part in The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire.

The Snow White And The Huntsman star has been cast in the role of Finnick Odair, following weeks of speculation, confirmed Lionsgate.

The British actor, who is engaged to actress Laura Haddock, will join returning cast members Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth for Francis Lawrence's highly anticipated big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' second book in The Hunger Games trilogy.

The character of Finnick is described as "charismatic and clever", and he was the victor of the Games for District Four when he was 14.

Sam, who starred in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, has recently finished filming The Quiet Ones with Jared Harris and drama Mary & Martha opposite Oscar winner Hilary Swank.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which will be released in November, sees winner Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer) returning home and embarking on a Victor's Tour with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh), before the pair sense that a rebellion is simmering at the Capitol.

You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
