The 'Twilight' actor personally debunks the story that he will play Finnick Odair in 'Catching Fire', saying 'My agent was like, 'No'.'
Robert Pattinson has put a stop in the rumor that he has been cast in the sequel of "The Hunger Games". During his appearance to promote "Cosmopolis" at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday, May 26, the actor confirmed that he was not even offered a part.
The rumor, sparked by Think McFly Think, said producers want Pattinson to play Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire". When asked about it, Lionsgate said, "As with the first film, we won't be confirming, denying on any casting rumors for this title."
Pattinson came out with the truth, telling 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 added with a laugh that his agent told him, "No one's going to offer you that part. I was like, 'Thanks for the reassurance'."
Finnick Odair is described as being very handsome and tall with tan skin, bronze hair, and stunning sea-green eyes, making him very popular with people in the Capitol. He represents District 4 at the 75th annual Hunger Games.
