What does Sam Claflin have to look forward to now that he is Finnick? Well, I think Crushable does a pretty good job of breaking it down for us. You can read an excerpt of their article below, but for the entire thing, CLICK HERE.
Shortly after the announcement, Sam sent out these adorable, genuinely gratefultweets thanking new fans and old ones:
It’s beginning. I’m so excited. Thank you all for the support – for welcoming me into #theHungerGames family @Mockingjaynet @TheHob @sparkswillflyco @HGFiresideChat and all my usual suspects – you know who you are (the loyal cadets) #TeamFinnick here we come! Ths again x
And now that we’re over the idea of him “kissing” Josh Hutcherson, we can start to evaluate the reaction at large from fandom and media. Actually, he would do well to ask his co-star Josh for advice, since a year ago he was in the same boat, an unknown with this high-pressure role thrust upon him, who’s since managed to win over any detractors and use his starpower for good. Hyperbolic predictions about his career: I’m sorry, but this press release from Dirt.comproclaiming Sam to be the Biggest Blowout Star of 2013 seems a bit like counting one’s chickens before they’re hatched. Just get a load of this quote!
“Sam is a dream. And when he takes his shirt off, he will make people faint. He is the biggest big thing to happen to Hollywood in 20 years.”
The poor boy is already under enough pressure! Jeez. Seeing as this praise comes a) from a little-known site and b) right after Sam’s casting but before we’ve seen anything of him as Finnick, you get the impression that Dirt.com would’ve handed out the title to whoever got cast regardless of his personality or talent. The ability to promote a worthwhile cause: J. Hutch has parlayed his Hunger Games fame into promoting the LGBT ally organization Straight But Not Narrow, and he regularly competes in celebrity basketball and kickball games for various charities.
