New 'Catching Fire' Photo Shows Finnick Looking Kind of Derpy

Following Saturday's reveal of the first Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer, we asked for more of Finnick, the series' beautiful golden god who competes alongside Katniss in the Quarter Quell. And, clearly, someone up there (President Snow?) was listening, because Monday saw the release of a new photo of the character, played by Sam Claflin. 

And the result? Well, Finnick looks... kind of derpy. 

Now, anyone who has read Catching Fire knows that's not necessarily a bad thing. Though we've certainly seen Claflin look much, much less derpy in films like Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Finnick is a character lauded only for his looks and athleticism prior to the revolution. Derpiness is pretty much expected of the male prostitute, if not required. (Especially if Showtime's Gigolos is any indication.) 

 

Plus, there are so many more images of Finnick we'll need to see before we judge him. For example, the bottom half of this picture, which is set during the scene when Katniss talks to the tribute while he's wearing a barely-there fishing net, per Suzanne Collins' novel. Need to give someone a preview, Lionsgate?
