Is Robert Pattinson in the running for the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games‘ sequel Catching Fire? One media source is reporting that it’s a done deal. Is this just a rumor or is Rob actually jumping the proverbial Twilight fence into The Hunger Games franchise?
According to a report from IBTimes, it’s Rob’s close ties with director Francis Lawrence that are likely fueling the rumor’s fire. Lawrence directed Water for Elephants, in which Rob starred with Reese Witherspoon.
It seems on Sunday it was rumored that a few tweets hinted at the definite filling of Finnick Odair’s role in Catching Fire, and they were ablaze with Rob as being one cast in that role. Some sources say the tweets were fakes. These same sources say fans of The Hunger Games are not happy about the prospect of Robert Pattinson playing the role of Finnick Odair.
What do you think the real story might be? Could you see Robert Pattinson in this Catching Fire role? How do you suppose Twilight fans will react if and when the rumor is confirmed?
