British hunk Sam Claflin has been cast as Finnick Odair in the second installment of the ‘Hunger Games’ franchise. The casting should pull even more young ladies into the multiplex in order to get a glimpse of Claflin.

While his ‘HG’ character is described as “charismatic and clever,” we thought that may have been a reference to the actor, as well.

Claflin, 26, has also starred in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ and in ‘Snow White and the Hunstman.’ It’s enough to make you wonder why Bella, er, Kristen Stewart, would stray from Edward, er, Robert Pattinson with the film’s married director when she went to work every day and saw this hunk.
