I actually love Jena Malone. I had no clear picture of Johanna but the moment I saw her, I thought: YEEES.
I'm really curious who'll play Finnick

I approve that they casted Sam Claflin as Finnick.

I don't know if I can properly judge casting Sam Claflin until I see him in the film but look-wise he's very handsome. So he certainly has that going for him. He's not exactly what I pictured Finnick looking like but I guess you can't please everybody. And I'm sure he's looks/acting will grow on me. My sister and I were talking yesterday about who they should cast for Annie and I said that I could totally see Emma Watson playing her. But I highly doubt that they'll cast her for the role because she's such a big name that she might take away from some of the other star power- plus it's a pretty tiny role. Anyways, one can wish, can't they?

^ Yes, it's really hard to judge unless you know his work, which I don't (except for snow white...)
I read the books after I saw the first film but I don't think I would ever have pictured Josh Hutcherson's face for the role of Peeta - after seeing his beautiful performance and subtle mannerisms I can't imagine anyone else for the part. I hope it's the same with Finnick. Besides, as you said he's very handsome. So that can't hurt, right?

This is not how I pictured Finnick... at all. I´ll give Sam the benefit of the doubt though...

NOT HOT Finnick although Sam Claflin is a pretty hot guy.

Not exactly what I imagined either but I'm sure he will do a great job.

The release date is November 22, 2013.

Yeah - obviously I pictured someone a bit bigger physically (more buff, taller, etc.) but like others, i won't judge until I've seen the film. The weird staged EW covers never look great anyway....

I'm confident that he'll bring it acting wise but like I said before Finnick needed to be absolutely drop dead gorgeous. Maybe he'll work in motion.

Do you guys remember how upset people were about Josh? Look at him now, adored by everyone. So Sam will be fine too.

I actually just saw Sam in the film United yesterday, I thought he did a pretty good job. So while Sam may not be who I pictured for Finnick I've sort of changed my tune about him, he might just be able to pull this role off. I can see why he was picked, he does have a really cheeky smile that you can picture Finnick having.

Finnick in my mind was completely different.

Sam is such a fail. The fact that I've seen him in two blockbuster movies but had no idea who he was and didn't even remember him speaks volumes. Finnick needed to be dynamic and they just went basic. They really couldn't find a tall, strapping actor from one of the coastal U.S. areas like Cali, Texas, Florida..etc who fit the part?

Wow, that is actually exactly how I pictured Finnick. So funny how we all imagine these characters differently.
