Hunger Games Wants Robert Pattinson For Finnick Odair!?!

| Filed under: Film FlickersTwilightRobert PattinsonHunger Games

robert pattinson hunger games finnick odair

Would they really cross-brand like that??

According to a new rumor that's floating around, studio execs would LOVE it if Robert Pattinson played hottie Finnick Odair in the Hunger Games sequel.

Yes, Finnick — the character EVERY young actor wants to land for Catching Fire. And the character we can't wait to drool over in the theater!!

Hmm…. R-Patz was just talking about living in the post-Twilight era of Hunger Games.

But still, as interesting as this sounds, we'll file it under the UNLIKELY category for now!

    never gonna happen.

    Finnick was used as a "HOOKER". I so do not see rpatz doing this.

  3. xxx says – reply to this


    he is to good to be in THG

    Not for nothing, RPatz is attractive, but I just don't see him as Odair. I just pictured Finnick younger, hotter and way more buff. Pattinson himself has said he doesn't like to workout and trying to get him to bulk up and rip out for what is essentially a small supporting role doesn't seem likely or a good use of his talent. Also, thinking he probably doesn't want to get caught up in another franchise.

    Keep him the hell away from this franchise. Finnick is my favorite character and I will not stand for this.

  7. xxx says – reply to this


    I will not and I repeat WILL NOT stand for RPatz as Finnick Odair. Definitely someone like Chris Evans or Chris Hemsworth

  8. Nicole says – reply to this


    False. Either Lionsgate or Summit said they would not allow crossover. Plus, NO ONE wants him for Finnick

  9. 9

    This is…NO. The studios have already said there will be no Twilight/THG actor crossovers, otherwise Kellan Lutz would be much more likely a candidate for Finnick. However "good looking" Rob/Edward is supposed to be considered, that sort of look is nothing like Finnick, who is young and hot and buff and blonde and has WAY MORE CHARISMA.
    And to whoever said Rob wouldn't go for what is a supporting actor role, Finnick gets to be quite important, especially in the third book of THG. So whoever gets picked for the role (I personally would like Garrett Hedlund, as much of a long shot as it is), has way more to do than just standing around a bit.

  10. Huh says – reply to this


    Pattinson is far too high profile for a gig on THG.

  11. 11

    He does not fit the description for Finnick at all. I picture Finnick as a tall adonis, extremely fit an athletic.

  12. 12

    No no no no no this going to make me cry. No effing way.

  13. Envy Rockbell says – reply to this


    Oh please, Garrett Hedlund would be the best for the role !

  14. Lorena says – reply to this


    Hell! NOOOOOO. that would be horrible, Finnick is a favorite from this franchise, and the only thing they would make it this happen is lose fans instead of gaining them…i dont like him at all, besides, Finnick is in his late twentys, i think, and handsome, blonde, easy on the eyes and have and amazong body, things that Robert doesnt have..

  15. kelsey says – reply to this


    NOOOOOOO he would be horrible as Finnick. I am a huge fan of his but I would be highly disappointed if he got the role. I see Finnick being played by someone like Ian Somerhoulder (he is in my dream cast)

  16. Garet says – reply to this


    Re: xxx – Exactly! I think Chris Hemsworth would be perfect for the role. He is blonde, extremely buff, not to mention beautiful! Any desperate woman from the Capitol would pay big bucks for Finnick Odair, no doubt Chris Hemsworth could live up to that! Also, after Thor, we know that he can be genuine and lovable, like he would need to be with Finnick's relationship with Annie. And he played an Avenger, he can kick major ass. Chris Hemsworth, hands down!

    Gossip cop (who checks facts contrary to someone we know) :

    Pattinson cleared up that rumor on Saturday at the Cannes Film Festival, where he premiered Cosmopolis on Friday.

    “I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games,” Pattinson told USA Today. “I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent.”

    He continued, “My agent was like, ‘No.’”

    Pattinson laughed and said his agent told him, “No one’s going to offer you that part. I was like, ‘Thanks for the reassurance.’”

    So there you have it.

    The star of The Twilight Saga is not planning to leap to The Hunger Games series.

    NOOOO! that would ruin the whole movie

  19. 19

    RPatz is skinny and not in shape and smokes like Garret Hedlund. They are not hunks like Finnick. Trevor Donovan is Finnick Odair

  21. 21

    i'd prefer Joseph Morgan to play Finnick

  22. Kate says – reply to this


    Oh no they don't! Finnick is my favorite character in any Hunger Games book and they'd better NOT mess him up! I love me some Team Edward, but he is not MY Finnick!

  23. Ally says – reply to this


    Finnick has Bronze hair. Robert is in now way hot enough to play a gorgeous ginger. I do not think Finnick is a small role either.

  24. Ally says – reply to this


    Re: Katiedora – he has bronze hair -.-

  25. jonanana says – reply to this


    NOOOOOOOOO! Someone like Chris Evans or idk .. whatever, someone hotter.

    Finnick Odair is described as being 26 years old, dark hair, gray eyes, good looking, and wanted by a lot of women. That part Rob could play…the part that doesn't fit Finnick is muscular and strong. Rob is none of that and since they are scheduled to start filming next month, Rob does not have enough time to bulk up for the part. Now Kellan would be perfect for Finnick, he would seriously have to step up his acting skills. He will be working with a stellar cast this time if he were to be considered for the part. I read Loinsgate doesn’t want any Twilighters for THG. But, I think if it works they should do it.

    Finnick is supposed to be good looking and Pattinson is definitely NOT. This would be a horrible choice, there are much better looking guys out there who can ACT.

  30. Yas says – reply to this


    I dont think they should get Rob. Twilight had its time let Hunger Games have theirs!

  31. natalie says – reply to this


    If Rob Patterson is Finnick im not watching Catching fire

  32. Marie says – reply to this


    I think MATT O'LEARY should play Finnick!! He is so hott and ridiculously talented. He's in Lone Ranger with Armie Hammer … he's amazing. That's it.
