Robert Pattinson Shoots Down Catching Fire Casting Rumor

by at . Comments

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?

Ryan gosling!


Can I remind people that Finnick Odair was described as having a swimmers build and red hair?


I really picture him to have dark hair and very tanned skin, more mediterranean looking. Can't think of anyone in particular though


Sigh of relief. Haha, no offense. He's a good actor but it's obvious who should be cast as Finnick...GRANT GUSTIN.

Absolutely Chris Hemsworth = Finnick perfection! He's the right age-range, right build, and plays that kind of role perfect! The relation to Liam is irrelevant, they'll rarely, if ever, share the screen


Chris Hemsworth should play Finnick! He's perfect for the role.... And with both brothers in it it would be an even bigger hit. The roles of gale and Finnick are soo different it wouldnt matter if both brothers were in it because they'd look soo different! Either Chris or Cam Gigandet. :)

I hate any reference to my name. I wish people would just completely invent a new one.
