Sam Claflin! The casting decision is official!

The actor best known for starring in Snow White And The Huntsman without banging the director will prep for battle in Disctrict 4 while Katniss and Peeta begin their merry rebellious victory lap around Panem!

    Really Perez? Did you have to put up the make shift caption?

    Way to go Perez! Are u having fun posting stuff about Kristen constantly!! Can u just leave her alone and stop making refrences about her! U don't even know the truth!

  3. tlmar says – reply to this


    That was rude!

  4. Really? says – reply to this


    Grow the fuck up seriously. That caption was totally uncessessary and you know it. Oh and by the way, Kristen never slept with the director anyway. Get your facts right, but that would mean for you to change your whole website so, good luck with that.

    That was crossing the line a bit back to your old self…not necessary.

    If Kristen was a guy, I'm sure no one would have made a big ass deal about it. Poor girl, leave her damn alone. This is nobody's business except for Rob and Kristen. They don't need fucking bullies like you Perez by adding up lies. Stop being such a douchebag. Bullying hurts.

    He is not hot enough. And KRISTEN was not mentioned so relax crazies!

    Re: babypinksmom – Yes she was: look at the picture and read the story. It's her face, it's her name (implied).

  9. 9

    Hello? Didn't you promise that you would stop bullying?! Your caption implies that she slept with the director to get that job. Totally unnecessary!

    How come no mention of Chelsea Handler calling you out Pumpkin Head??????????????????????????

    What happened to not being a bully anymore? You are sure having a great time taking a turn at Kristen Stewart. And being sexist while doing it. Way to show you've moved forward.

    I'm sorry but this is so DUMB! This is not how Finnick was described in the books at all. This is some skinny pretty little boy. They passed up the perfect guy, Alan Ritchson who looks exactly the way the book described Finnick for him?! Unbelievable. On top of it they casted Alan as a different character. If you're gonna give the guy the job give him the one he's obviously most suited for. I would love to see how Sam is going to manage getting buff enough to play Finnick.

    Did you really need to post that caption? You Perez are nothing but a bully. You are no better than the high school bullies that end up going to jail for murder because they taunted a person so much they killed themselves. You don't just bully Kristen but every other celeb. They say most bullies are just jealous because the people they bully have something they don't. Is that your problem are you jealous that these celebs have more money than you and get more attention? What problems with yourself do you have that you have to take out on others? Do you like hurting people? Maybe you need to take a step back and figure out how you would feel if people constantly write horrible things about you. One day you are going to go too far with what you say and someones life might be taken. It might not be a celeb's life but maybe one of their devoted fans. How would you feel after this happened? That you caused something like that to happen? Or what if someone gets so mad at you for the things you say and they come after you? People take things you say personally whether it's about them or their beloved celeb. Would you want to live in fear that someone was coming after you? What I'm just saying is that you need to take others feeling into consideration. You need to actually become anti-bully and NOH8. Lady Gaga and every other celeb you write about are NOH8 so why can't you be?

    Give it up Perez. Your constant Kirsten bashing is pathetic. Grow up. Robert will never get with you.

  15. burt says – reply to this


    Not who I would have picked at all! I was thinking someone like Tom Hardy or Logan Marshall-Green

  16. cait says – reply to this


    is he going to bath in bronzer? I pictured someone tanner and hunkier and slightly older…but I will give him a chance

    So just my two cents, but this casting is WAY off from where it should be.

    Finnick: He is tall, muscular, and athletic, with tan skin, bronze-colored hair, and "incredible" sea green eyes

    I'm sure Sam is a wonderful actor, but this part is described as someone who oozes charisma and basically is so physically chiseled they have everything handed to them. It's rather disappointing.

  19. Adaiah says – reply to this


    I think there is a double moral standard here. If Kristen Stewart was a guy, nobody would be crucifying her; she would not be losing jobs nor being alienated by the media. There are no excuses for her cheating, but I think her punishment is excessive.
    And you are so against bullying, right? Guess what….that is exactly what you are doing here! You are bullying Kristen over and over again. Be aware….it seems your old self is making a come back….

  20. getoveryoursht says – reply to this


    Im pretty sure this post is about the horrible casting of Finnick in Catchin fire. I mean, wow, bad.
    People, you dont know kristen stewart so stop clenching your assholes and getting all upset about the things that are said about her. This is a gossip website where the creator speaks his mind freely and nothing you or I say will make a difference. the odds that he even reads your pathetic rants are very slim … if you dont like it, get off his shit.

    Oh and another thing… Did I mention the casting of Finnick is a total rip? So lame.

  21. Disappointed says – reply to this


    I don't understand people who go on gossip websites and then complain about the gossip? Also Perez can't be the ONLY ONE who is writing these stories. I think it's literally impossible for him to do all this work himself, there has to be a team, so stop targeting Perez directly peeps! Anywho I am sort of terribly disappointed with Sam as their choice. I think someone like Derek Theler would have been MUCH better. Sam's physical description is just totally off =(

    Quit being haters. This will blow over, but she is doing the walk of fame that is a lot longer than from the front door to the taxi. However, this young man is not what I pictured as Finnick, but he will probably beef up, and they will transform him with make-up, lighting, and effects so he will be the most beautiful man in the realm.
    Please look at actors in real life…they could be you or me in real life…but after the glamour is layered on, they look like gods.
    Also, Perez is not being cruel anymore. I have no idea about jests like "chinnyston", or however it is spelt…as she is so much hotter than most of the population, that was just being mean-spirited (bully).
    If someone screws a MARRIED man…she will catch a butt-load of flack, but it will die down. Believe me, although I think Angelina is a talented actress, I still think that the sneaky shit was deplorable.

  23. 23

    Yes, I need therapy.
    I meant the "Walk of Shame".
    I deserve the burn.

  24. 24

    I can't see my previous post…
    Obviously I can't type…it is called "The Walk of SHAME"!!!
    Almost as shameful as my spelling and typing.

    what the heck??!! That's who they cast as Finnick?? This guy is so totally the OPPOSITE of what is described in the books! Finnick is described as someone who is drop dead gorgeous and this guy…well…he just isn't!
    Not sure who is responsible for casting this time around but whoever it is, they got this casting all wrong! Very dissapointed. I was looking forward to some more eye candy in the next movie and now it seems as though I will be dissapointed. Guess I will just focus on Peeta!

    Noo! i was really routing for Grant Gustin to get the part as Finnick Odair. When i read the books, i was imagening him as Finnick, he is perfect for the role… He is a great acor. Grant Gustin is super charming and he has a great smile (and body). Now i will be disapointed no matter what… well well Go Grant Gustin!

    I am definitely skeptical about this decision. A few ladies around my office at Dish and I thought Alan Ritchson would’ve been the perfect choice, since he’s so dreamy! That picture of Claflin does not shine a good light on his looks, which is one of the defining characteristics of Finnick. I hope that Claflin is a good actor at least, although I’ve never even heard of him before reading this! Does anyone know of anything that he has starred in that I could check out besides Snow White (since that isn’t on DVD yet)? I have the Blockbuster@Home service through my Dish account that features tons of movies and shows, so tracking down titles won’t be a problem. I just don’t know what this no-name guy has been in before.

    Re: MISTY – Sam was phillip in pirates of the Caribbean on stranger tides! He is amazing and will make a great finnick once the make up artists have worked their magic! He is a really good actor and in potc he looks like finnick

  29. Kelly says – reply to this


    Exactly! No woman would even see that Sam Claflin guy with Alan standing right there. He would make a much better Finnick.I wouldn't even categorized Sam Claflin as attractive let alone drop dead gorgeous like Finnick is supposed to be! Very disappointed :( Re: V.V
