What we know about Finnick Odair

Finnick Odair is the male tribute from District 4 who won the 65th Hunger Games at the age of 14. During those Games he was sent a trident, which might have been one of the most expensive gifts ever given in the Games. He excelled at using the trident as a weapon and with his skill for making nets, he would trap his opponents and then kill them.

He was also a mentor for the District 4 tributes during the 74th Hunger Games and took part in the 3rd Quarter Quell during which he was part of an alliance with Peeta, Katniss, Wiress, Beetee, Johanna Mason and his previous mentor, Mags.

He’s described as being tall, muscular and athletic, with golden skin, bronze-colored hair, and seafoam green eyes. Katniss puts his success down to a combination of his physical skill and unprecedented popularity among the Capitol.

His one and only true love is Annie Cresta, the 70th Hunger Games victor who went insane when her partner tribute got beheaded in the Games.

    Benjamin Stone all the way. He is the Nine Lives of Chloe King, which is on Tuesdays on ABC Family at 9pm. He knows how to play a cocky guy and he can do an American accent. Give the role to an unknown. Everyone else suggested is too identified with another franchise or tv series. This guy has the acting chops. Come on no one liked it when Tobey Maguire was cast as Spiderman, but look at how that turned out?

    Alex Pettyfer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Benjamin is not even cute…Alex Pettyfer would be totally awesome as Finnick.
    Also is is such a close age to Finnick………HE HAS TO ACT THE ROLE OF FINNICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Well, i’m not going by how good looking they are…but I imagined someone like alex when I read the books. The other two look a little more innocent and little kiddish…and even though Finick’s supposed to be young, he’s not supposed to look like a child in my opinion. But who knows who they’ll pick. thanks
