Robert Pattinson Weighs In On Those Catching Fire Rumors!

| Filed under: Film FlickersTwilightRobert PattinsonBookzHunger Games

no robert pattinson for catching fire

And just like that, our dreams are DASHED against the jagged, cruel rocks of reality!

While the internet has been rampant with rumors that Robert Pattinson may be cast as the incredibly seksi Finnick Odair in the big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, the actor has confirmed that he HASN'T even been offered the role!

He explains:

"I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games. I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent. My agent was like, 'No…no one's going to offer you that part.' I was like, 'Thanks for the reassurance.'"

Ha! Yeah, exactly what we thought!

That would be some SERIOUS cross-branding!

OR…maybe just a brilliant way to secure those hold-out Twi-hards who won't open their minds to the brilliance that is The Hunger Games?

Sigh. Well, at least now the role is open for our beloved Zefron!

Ha!

    Thank God he'll be staying away. This role was meant for Hunter Parrish.

    Finnick is described as being beautiful, tan…do you think of this ugly vampire guy?! hell no!

    FUCK OFF! He has had his franchise, now let someone else have a go :D

    He never had any chance of getting this part, so I don't know why anyone was even talking about it. He doesn't have the looks or charisma to play Finnick. And again, the studio said a long time ago that there would be no crossover between Twishit and Hunger Games.
    Although I wouldn't mind seeing Hunter Parrish in that role, as someone mentioned.

    I hope whatever c-list actor they find for this role has some international appeal so they can make more at the box office there.

    I do love rpatz, and admittedly love twilight but also LOVE the hunger games as well! So just because someone is a twihard doesnt mean they have a closed mind and wont give anything else a chance perez! I am highly excited for catching fire but just as excited for the final movie of the twilight saga (since breaking dawn was my fave book of the series)
    I think he could have pulled off the role as finnick beautifully! But I think he wants to do more challenging roles as an actor and get away from the bigger franchises.

    He doesn't need to do another tween franchise, especially after working with a great director like Cronenberg and having his film in competition in Cannes. Relax people.

    Rob is now doing more adult roles and working with respected directors like David Cronenberg.

    Re: Katiedora – He never had a chance of getting the part because no director in their right mind would be rude enough to ask Robert Pattinson to star in a role in a YA franchise that's not even the lead.

    I love Twilight too, but I would have been very upset if he got the part. I am still hoping for Grant Gustin to get it!

    He almost always looks like he needs a shower and shampoo, sorry fans.

    I vote Ryan Kwanten!!!

    Check out Nathalie Paulding as Johanna Mason on Youtube, awesome vid!



  15. 15

    Chris Zylka would do great for Finnick, he looks like him, and h's a good actor, he can play anything
