Robert Pattinson Shoots Down Finnick Casting Rumors in ‘Catching Fire’

Rumors hit the web last week that Robert Pattinson was being considered for the coveted role of Finnick in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Robert woke up on Saturday during his time at Cannes and became aware of the rumors and had to find out the truth himself.

Robert told USA Today, “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,’ ”

He continuted, “(My agent) was like no one’s going to offer you that part. [laughs] I was like, thanks for the reassurance.”

Sorry Rpattz, but you really don’t fit the description for Finnick but we be he would have still done a great job.

So who do you want to see cast as Finnick? Maybe Zac Efron? Kellan Lutz? Grant Gustin? Let us know!
