New Hunger Games 2,Catching Fire Finnick Odair details dished out by Finnick actor. According to, Sam Claflin,who plays Finnick Odair in the upcoming “Catching Fire” action/drama flick,chatted it up with Future Radio 107.8FM,and revealed some new details and spoilery info about his character,along with some blooper reels,and more.

Sam kicked off the interview by revealing what he thinks about the whole Hunger Games franchise,and more. He explained, “But the great thing about the books is that Suzanne Collins created these great arcs for each and every character, no matter, I mean from Katniss all the way down to her sister, to her mother. You know, each character goes on a journey. And I think that’s what’s so riveting about the books themselves.”

After that, Sam talked about the crazy Twitter fans and the crazy things they would say to him. He also dished on what he did to prep for the big role,stating, “I have to say the pressure is on. I mean, I’m a member of Twitter and especially when it was first announced there was a huge backlash. Some positive and some very negative. You know people were sort of saying they wanted to kill themselves and that I wasn’t anywhere near good-looking enough.

Everyone has their own perceptions of what a good-looking person is and basically all I can do is do my best and you know, you have to kind of not read the bad press or whatever. You have to keep focusing and working hard and the moment you channel that out I just had fun really. And it was hard work, it was definitely, definitely hard work. I was eating chicken and asparagus twice a day, every day. Not including all the other meals I was forced to have each day.

And then working out two or three times a day. I didn’t really have a life ,but when I was on set there was a great dynamic between the cast and crew and when you’re on a set in the middle of Hawaii, you don’t really care about what other people think. I enjoyed the moment when I was in the moment.”

It also turns out that Finnick might not be wearing much clothing in some of the scenes as Sam explained, “And obviously the unfortunate thing about a film version is that they are trying to make this accessible to a younger audience, therefore there are certain aspects that you can’t include. One being Finnick Odair wearing just the net or just a knot covering his crotch. That was something that we couldn’t, unfortunately, include. But, you know, I’m scantily clad and hopefully people will still be happy!”

Lastly, Sam decided to fill us in on some of the bloopery happenings that went on behind the scenes. It sounds like Sam is a bit clumsy to say the least. He stated, “I was specifically asked not to mention some of the accidents that happened on set. All to do with me, I have to say. Let’s just say I am a very, very clumsy person. There was fall, after fall, after fall, after fall.

We basically, me and Francis the director, we were laughing that there would be a DVD extra, a whole DVD on it’s own for the blooper reel, just for me! Because every time he’d say action, just before we had to a fight, I would flip over or fall. And even when I was standing still I’d manage to fall over. There were plenty of accidents.”

Catching Fire is scheduled to arrive in theaters on November 22nd,2013. Stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
