This is it, friends. This is what Finnick looks like, because this is a photo from the set of Catching Fire. This is Sam Claflin all dolled up in hair and makeup, ready to woo us all with his dashing good looks, his undeniable charm, and his sweet trident moves. Except not really.
Not to be mean (oh god, this is going to sound so mean), but is this a joke? Sam Claflin is adorable and everything, and I know that he’s making a goofy face in this picture, but this just isn’t what I pictured at all. I mean, look at him:
“They did [approach me]. I was working on this film ['On the Road'] at that time. We shot the whole film in 23 days and I was really immersed in it.

Everybody around me is flipping out about the books, and I didn’t really have the time to sit down lately to read any book, not just ‘Hunger Games.’ But I’ve got a couple [projects] on my plate that I’m looking forward to reading now.”
