So much for that casting rumor.
A few days after word spread that Robert Pattinson was being considered for the role of Finnick Odar - a Hunger Games character with whom this actor shares nary a physical trait - in Catching Fire, the handsome star has come out and made it clear:
This ain't happening.
"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] was like no one's going to offer you that part. I was like, 'thanks for the reassurance.'"
That's probably a good thing.
So, with Pattinson out of the running, the question remains: Who should take on the physically gifted role of Finnick?
