Could Robert Pattinson Play Finnick in The Hunger Games? His Agent’s Harsh Response

The Hunger Games is just months away from filming its sequel, Catching Fire, and there’s already one question the fans can’t stop asking: Who will play the role of Finnick Odair?

Finnick, who makes his first appearance in Catching Fire, is a previous Hunger Games champion. Now 24 years old, the golden-haired dreamboat must re-enter the ring and take on Katniss, Peeta, and the other champions in the Capitol’s first all-stars competition, known as the Quarter Quell.

With his devilish good looks and muscular physique, Finnick is loved and adored by pretty much all the ladies. So which Hollywood hunk will ultimately end up playing the shameless flirt?

We don’t know yet, but one thing’s for sure: It won’t be Robert Pattinson.

The Twilight heartthrob has read reports claiming he’s in consideration for the role, but he tells USA Today that his agent has been quick to shoot down any such rumors.

"I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games," Robert tells the paper. "I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent."

The response? "My agent was like, 'No,'" Robert says. "[My agent] was like no one's going to offer you that part," he adds, laughing. "I was like, thanks for the reassurance."

We love R-Patz — but we’re not sure he’d be the best fit for Finnick. Need a character who is dark and mysterious? Robert’s got that covered. But a macho, super-flirty guy with a Greek god persona? That doesn’t really seem like him.

Either way, getting turned down for Finnick probably isn’t helping with Robert’s insecurity over his lack of abs. Ouch.
