VIDEO: Jennifer Lawrence talks about Sam Claflin (Finnick), 'Catching Fire' & Francis Lawrence

MTV's Josh Horowitz caught up with Jennifer Lawrence and her Silver Linings Playbook co-star, Bradley Cooper yesterday at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival where she talked about Sam Claflin being cast as Finnick Odair and having a "great American accent," excitement to film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Francis Lawrence replacing Gary Ross as the director of the sequel.

Here's an excerpt of the interview from MTV:

It seems that “Hangover” actor, currently at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting his and co-star Jennifer Lawrence’s new film”The Silver Linings Playbook,” is the latest person to catch fire and become a “Hunger Games” fan. “I just saw it,” Cooper told a surprised Lawrence when MTV News spoke with the pair at TIFF. “I didn’t even tell you? I didn’t text you?”  
Cooper further proved his “Hunger Games” fandom by listing reasons why he’s excited for “Catching Fire” to come out. “Philip Seymour Hoffman is in this,” he said. “He’s unbelievable.” 
The Oscar-winning “Capote” star isn’t the only newcomer on board for “Catching Fire.” Sam Claflin was recently cast as Finnick, and Lawrence expressed her own excitement over the casting. “He’s wonderful. He’s really sweet, a great, wonderful actor. He’s got a great American accent.”
