Catching Fire promotion has been underway for the past week, with new portraits of all the major characters have been releasing one by one each day. We finally got Sam Claflin's Finnick Odair and Donald Sutherland's President Snow yesterday, and both characters look like the spitting image of their characters.
Donald Sutherland played President Snow as regal and quietly menacing, and his portrait definitely embodies that. Sam Claflin's Finnick Odair, on the other hand, seems to be brooding, ridiculously good-looking, and dressed in the outfit that embodies the fishing sector of District 4.
While Sutherland is a returning cast member, there has been a lot of scrutiny on Claflin's casting, with many fans wondering if he would be able to hold up to their ideal of Finnick. Finnick is one of Hunger Games fans' favorite characters, but it looks like this portrait shows that the filmmakers are doing their best to do justice to the character.
'Catching Fire' releases on November 22nd of this year, and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Donald Sutherland, Jeffrey Wright, Lynn Cohen, Woody Harrelson, and Willow Shields.
