Maybe you should’ve waited until Lionsgate announced it themselves, Jared. Nothing is “official” until they say so.

I would have rather seen someone else playing Finnick, this guy is not (to me) what Finnick should look like. Would have preferred Garrett Hedlund or Armie Hammer.

Just my opinion.

Sam was smart,gorgeous as the prince William in the snowwhite and huntsman…in the book,Finnick has a bronzed skin,and also,Sam s skin had bronzed when he was playing the missionary in Caribbean 4…… Finnick is supposed to be smart,gorgeous and sexy.I think Sam would be perfect.

Have to agree with Rayna, here, according to Lionsgate and the official cast chart, there is not yet a Finnick cast. The last they announced was that it was down to the final three

Horrible choice!!!! He is not a good Finnick at all. They should have chosen Trevor Donovan

This is absolutely wrong. He is NOT what I imagined the resident sex god of The Hunger Games to be. This is all wrong. I’m sure that he’s a great guy and there’s no denying that he isn’t too bad on the eyes but he certainly not Finnick material and I do hope that you’re wrong about this article.

Oh dear, @nat take a chill pill! The capslock was not needed. I haven’t read the books so I can’t say anything but I am in love with the hunger games. But I also agree with Rayna, JJJr nothing is official until Liongate announces it – NOT ‘Gossip Cop’ …. BAH
