by: on | in Entertainment News | 6 Comments

If you’re one of the many who’ve been dying to get a peek at Finnick Odair in Catching Fire, worry yourselves no longer. The latest cover of Entertainment Weekly features The Hunger Games‘ heroine, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), as well as the brooding District 4 Tribute (Sam Claflin).

It seems like only yesterday, the Snow White and the Huntsman star was cast in the coveted role. Now, the movie’s wrapped filming after what appears to be nothing but fun on the Hawaii set, and Sam’s opening up about the infamous sugar cube scene. (If you don’t know what we’re referring to, read the book!) The Brit describes that particular scene as “the scariest moment of my life” after wearing nothing but some ‘strategically placed netting’ in certain areas. “I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’”

As for Jennifer, she was totally at home with her castmates. She recalls, “When Sam walked in, I was chasing Woody and we’d flipped over my couch and Woody had a sock all the way down my throat…” After that, it was easier for Sam to bond with the rest of the outgoing THG cast — especially Josh Hutcherson, the other half of his bromance.

    Finnick is allllllll wrong :( which makes we really sad! I hope this one is better then the last one because I was super disappointed with the first one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Jessi

      if you were disappointed with the last one, i think its going to be impossible to meet your expectations. The first one kept to the book almost exactly…

    I think Sam will do a great job. I really hope he does. Finnick is my favorite character, so I know how those fans feel about not wanting him to mess up!
