If you are a Twilight Fan, Robert Pattinson Fan, or a Hunger Games Fan, then you have no doubt heard the rumors that Robert Pattinson (Edward) might be playing “Finnick” in the second and third Hunger Games movies. But as we have seen time and time again, actors and directors are sometimes forced to lie. Plus the longer this goes on (No Actor has been named to play Finnick) then the more free press, articles, and blog posts keep mentioning the upcoming movies.
Sure Robert is denying he “Knows” anything about it, but if he joined the cast to play Finnick who appears in both of the next two movies called “Catching Fire” and “The Mockingjay”, then they would easily joined the fan bases of two of the largest cult followings in movie history. One thing we know about Hollywood, is that if fans want it, and it will make them more money, then it WILL happen!
In an interview with USA Today, Pattinson denied rumors that he was in talks to play the dreamy tribute Finnick Odair in the next “Hunger Games” movie, “Catching Fire.”
“I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in ‘The Hunger Games’,” he said while promoting “Cosmopolis” in Cannes over the weekend. “I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent. My agent was like, ‘No.’ [My agent] was like, ‘No one’s going to offer you that part.’ I was like, ‘Thanks for the reassurance.’ “
Finnick appears in both “Catching Fire” and the last book in the franchise, “Mockingjay.” Ten years before he entered the arena in “Catching Fire,” he had won the Hunger Games at age 14 using a Trident. Although they sometimes have a shaky relationship, Finnick and Katniss eventually become friends and ultimately join a group of rebel sharpshooters called Squad 451.
What do you think? Will they end up getting Robert to join the Hunger Games movies?
Personally we think they will find a way to get him in this movie, but sometimes Hollywood is just as dumb as they are greedy.
