      Smug expression isn’t helping either.

  • charlotte

    I pass.

    • tereliz

      I’ll take that jacket, though…

      • charlotte

        Wash it first! This guy looks James Franco icky.

  • Julie


  • Clueless_Jock

    Why does he remind me of Keira Knightley?

    • sugarkane105

      The lips!

  • marlie

    Everything about this is so… awkward.

  • In_Stitches

    Stubble doesn’t work for him, his pants are too tight, and that camera angle is killing him. Oh, and the hair color sucks. Try again.

  • gabbilevy

    Boy that’s not your jacket.

    (Also I’m betting he’s sticking with the not-my-real-haircolor blonde because Finnick is the golden boy, but son, it’s doing you no favors)

  • decormaven

    Unfortunate styling of hair, poor fit in pants, unskilled tie knot. Sad…

  • wisenhar

    Whoever is picking out your clothes does not like you! Stay as far away from him/her as possible!

    • lunchcoma

      I’m 99% sure he chooses his own clothes, which may indicate some serious self esteem issues.

  • lunchcoma

    Awkward and badly fitted, but sadly, this may be a personal best for him. There are some really frightening pictures on Google Images.

    • marlie

      But you can also tell that he’s really, really handsome. Like, those DIMPLES. It’s a sin and a shame that he’s covering them up with such icky, scruffy facial hair.

      • lunchcoma

        He’s a looker for sure, and he’s supposedly a friendly, charming guy. It’s a shame he always ends up looking scruffy and a little sleazy. He’s one of the ones who’d really benefit from a stylist.

        • Rhonda Shore

          he needs to lose the chin pubes as well.

  • jtabz

    Oh, no.

  • merciblahblah

    This hair color is the same color mine was when I used Sun In on it circa 1983. Not. Good. He reminds me of a younger, blond version of Norm MacDonald.

    • aeb1986

      Agreed- its creeping me out! If he fixed the hair color I’d think he was attractive but I just cannot get past that

  • kimmeister

    Er, at least his tie clip is not as high as some have been wearing it lately.

  • Imasewsure

    He’s either the biggest jack ass in Hollywood or he just doesn’t know how swarmy he looks on the RC

    I actually don’t hate the suit but his overall look is annoying

    • ankali

      I think he looks less smarmy than just rather dim. Pretty, but dim.

  • Trickytrisha

    Hm, this is one young man who should shave… always. Scraggly facial hair is not attractive. This guy has such potential, just needs some first class advice that he actually follows. Plus, one of pet peeves is ears being much paler than the face, as here.

  • If he tries to sit down those pants will split.

    • demidaemon

      I could be okay with that for many reasons.

  • deathandthestrawberry


    But his pants look too tight, and not in a good way either.

  • formerlyAnon

    Sweet lord. This one needs people. With dress sense. Bedroom eyes like that will not get you anywhere if your clothing is working against you this hard.

    • conniemd

      Yes, he clearly has the bedroom eyes thingy working for him. He shouldn’t look douchey with those beautiful eyes. Someone messed up big time here.

    • TwiddlyStun

      I’m having a hard time telling the difference between bedroom eyes and doobie eyes.

      • formerlyAnon

        Well, they’re not necessarily mutually exclusive . . .

      • martha

        I was totally thinking doobie

  • bellafigura1


  • sisterb67

    I can practically smell the waves of McConaughey/Franco dbag-stink wafting off him through my monitor.

  • acevedob

    I actually have that outfit, though it’s definitely not Prada. Looks better on me 😉

  • boweryboy

    Nope. I’m not believing this is Prada. How can this be Prada?

    Those pants are quite unflattering. It’s doesn’t help that he has his hands in his pockets which makes him look wide and hippy as well. I won’t even get into the porportions, the hair, or the “beard”.

  • Anne At Large

    Holy cannoli, I just googled this kid in the movie, he is gorgeous! Amazing how a terrible outfit and awful styling can make such a huge difference.

  • imspinningaround

    This chap has a punchable face.

    • jilly_d

      Nailed it.

  • kittenwithaquip

    Resting douche face.

  • rissa42210

    gurl, we need to talk about dem streaks.

  • MilaXX

    The more I see this guy, the less I like him

    • porcupie

      Could someone explain the hate to me? The only thing I’ve seen is that he apparently feels very insecure and anxious due to Hunger Games fans thinking he’s not attractive enough, or something.

      • MilaXX

        I can only answer for myself. He’s just coming across as douche-y. It remains to be seen whether it’s inexperience on the RC or genuine Franco levels of douchiness.

  • Qitkat

    Beg pardon, sir, I do believe there is something malodorous in the drawing room.

  • Alfred Cox

    This is tragic. Absurdly hot guy in ill fitting banker clothes. The shirt and tie are nice, at least. Still, OUT.

  • tvmovielover

    He looks fat-assed.

  • nancymae

    Sam Clafin, you are Nooooooo Finnick

  • rosie5215

    I have no articulate way to say this:

    He has curling iron curls.

    • demidaemon

      No doubt that is how he got them as well. I saw him on Chelsea Lately last night and his hair looked infinitely better when it was understyled (at least compared to this hot mess).

      • formerlyAnon

        I would bet much money that he looks better first thing in the morning on his way to put out the trash/go to the gym/walk the dog than he does in the last few pictures. He probably knows how to choose a pair of jeans & t-shirt that fit.

  • deliadee

    “Good evening, do you have a reservation?”

  • demidaemon

    Man, he was so cute on Chelsea Lately last night but I just can’t with him here. Weird proportions + strange expression = Yuck and No.

  • ewes_urn_aim

    I’d do him.

  • Malibufire

    “Does this jacket make my ass look big?”

  • Tom Robinson

    He oozes douche.

  • jw_ny

    I’m hoping all the shaggy beards we’ve seen lately is due to Novembeard, and will be shaved come Dec 1st! This is not a good look for him. OTOH tho, his butt looks mighty perky in that side pic…;)

  • formerlyAnon

    Have to say I’m not picking up on the douche vibe. I think he looks ill-at-ease, if I’m going to read anything into it. I also think he is capable of being stunningly good looking (in a style that I don’t favor) but his clothes, hair, scruff, and lack of polish have been getting firmly in the way.

    Gotta reiterate that whoever’s been styling these Hunger Games events is not doing what they could be for the franchise.

  • MichelleRafter

    Thought this was Matthew McConaughey. Could pass for his younger bro or cousin.

  • Angela Cotsones Shea

    Playing Barry Manilow in his younger years…..

  • PastryGoddess

    Sweet Baby Jesus Claflin! You are young, pretty, and rich. Why can’t you find clothes that fit, shampoo, and a razor.


  • quiltrx

    At least he looks like he’s still having fun. It’s amazing how dashing he looks in his poster for the movie, and how much of a jackass he looks in person.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Precious one, you need a Master of Divinity degree from some Southern Baptist seminary before you attempt that particular gayface.

  • Janet B

    Somewhere in there is a good looking man, better than average at least.
    Please, someone wipe the smug look off of his face, restore his hair color, give him a good shave and find some better fitting clothes.

  • Sara

    That’s our Finnick. He’s supposed to be gross upon first inspection. The Capitol made him this way! /fangirl /shows self out

  • MannahattaMamma

    He looks like The Joker’s stoned teen-age son. None of that is a compliment.

  • Mona_Visa

    It’s like he thinks he’s doing an Alan Cummings impression. Please, kid, back the hell waaaay off of that— Cummings is out of your league yet.

  • Coleen

    I hope every single film review mentions the horrible miscasting of this actor as Finnick, I’m so mad about his stupid look. There’s no body wash in the world strong enough to wash the Douche off of him.

  • French_Swede

    This is NOT the same man I saw last night in “Catching Fire”. In the movie he’s active, handsome, fierce. The guy above looks like a mannequin of Sam Claflin.

    • ErikaM812

      Agreed! He’s so dorky on the red carpet. I hope he gets more confidence. I think this movie is going to make him a huge star! He’s my new celeb crush after seeing him as Finnick last night, lol.

      • French_Swede

        I also think it’s a star-making turn for him. And he figures even more prominently in the final chapter, Mockingjay!

  • lalahartma

    He has a pretty face.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    It’s very Oscar Wilde come lately, isn’t it? Which is to say, nowhere near the real Oscar Wilde, with his drama and wit, but just some pretender who wishes to spin in the Wilde orbit for a bit while others roll their eyes.

  • Tashina Savage

    Those pants and his expression has taken this already poor fashion decision into sleazeball territory.

  • Danielle

    He’s just not Finnick to me. 😐

  • jjtxgrrl

    Well, I think he’s pretty! Yeah jacket is tad small….but MAN. PRETTY.
