Robert Pattinson Rumored for Role of Finnick Odair in Catching Fire

by at . Comments

He already has one franchise under his belt. Might Robert Pattinson soon add another?

According to Movie Fanatic, the Twilight Saga star is under consideration for the role of Finnick Odair in Catching Fire, the wildly anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games.

Finnick is described in Suzanne Collins' novel as a ridiculously handsome former champion of the competition at the center of the triology's story. He's muscular, tan and blonde-haired (doesn't exactly sound like R. Patt, does it?) and he harbored a troubled personal life.

The Pattinson rumored has gained momentum because Francis Lawrence will direct Catching Fire and he worked with Rob in Water For Elephants.

"As with the first film, we won't be confirming, denying or commenting on any casting rumors for this title," the studio said in a statement in response to this chatter. "We will announce news wide when there is official casting news to announce."

Until then... let's speculate! Who should portray Finnick?
