Catching Fire hurts.

At least it did for franchise newcomer Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick in the Hunger Games sequel.

"Sam got hurt the worst," Alan Ritchson, who plays Gloss in Catching Fire, told me at the MTV Movie Awards. "He broke his hand doing a stunt."

Don't look for footage of the mishap in a DVD extra, though. "It was in rehearsal, so we weren't even shooting," Ritchson said. "He broke it on the stunt guy, warming up. I was standing right next to him. It was tough to watch."

But, Ritchson said, Claflin "took it like a champ—he took it and kept moving."

Ritchson's other big movie coming down the pike is the live-action Ninja Turtles reboot produced by Michael Bay.

If you hadn't heard, the flick will feature Megan Fox playing April O'Neil.

"She's great," Ritchson, who plays Raphael, raved about the former Transformers star. "She's a charming actress. She's a beautiful, beautiful woman."

If all goes well, the film will be the launching pad for a Turtles franchise, and Ritchson revealed he is already signed for "more than one" installment.
