It’s one of the most anticipated films in recent memory, and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” has just added Sam Claflin to the already-illustrious cast.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” stud will play the role of Finnick, a District 4 Hunger Games victor when he was fourteen years old.

Claflin has made quite a name for himself as of late, having worked alongside Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” He also just finished “Mary & Martha” with Hilary Swank and “The Quiet Ones” with Jared Harris.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is slated for a November 22nd, 2013 release and continues with the adventures of Katniss Everdeen, which take place in a futuristic dystopian world, as she prepares for the Quarter Quell.
