After the biggest casting search since Scarlett O’Hara, Zap2it is reporting that British actor Sam Clafin has been cast as the golden-haired Lothario Finnick Odair in the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. Clafin is most famous for his recent turns in Snow White and the Huntsman and Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides. This news comes hot on the heels of today’s announcement that Amanda Plummer had gotten the role of Wiress and Jenna Malone is in the running to play snotty tribute Johanna Mason. Variety is also reporting that Melissa Leo and Tony Shaloub are up for key Catching Fire roles as well. Leo is sought for the part of Mags, the ancient tribute who’s an ally of Finnick, while Shalhoub would play Beetee, a former Games winner from District 3. Filming is set to begin this summer. It’ll arrive in theaters on Nov. 22, 2013.
