Do you think Sam has what it takes to fill Finnick’s beautiful shoes? Vote now!

The hunt for the dreamiest gentleman in Panem is finally over! Sam Claflin has been offered the part of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, Zap2it reports, beating out everyone from Garrett Hedlund to Armie Hammer for the plum role.

Some of you may remember Sam from his role in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but of course, we’ll always think of the 26-year-old British actor as Kristen Stewart‘s prince in Snow White and the Huntsman.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Sam has the chops — and the looks — to play Finnick? Vote below, then tell us how you really feel in the comments section below!

Garret is too sloppy looking. Sam is perfect. Have you ever heard of contact lenses?

I’d rather have garret hedlund because he is tall, green eyes, tan, and he is a really great actor. Sam is pretty good but he doesnt completely match finnick odair. I’m just saying

I imagined Jackson Rathborne in the role. Oh well… At least it’s not Rob Pattinson.

I agree with you guys. Someone like Garrett would have been so much better.

I don’t see him a Finnick. Not at all. They should have cast Garrett Hedlund. Your a good actor Sam, but i don’t see you as Finnick Odair.

I can’t see him as Finnick… I’m kinda disappointed to be honest. I was picturing someone like Garrett Hedlund as Finnick
