Robert Pattinson has been a rumored contender for The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, in the lead role of Finnick Odair. It seems it's only a rumor, however. The Twilight hunk has himself confirmed he won't be in the film.
According to a report from CNN, Rob even fell for the rumor himself. However when he called up his agent to ask if he had fielded any offers, he got a negative reply.
"My agent was like, 'No,'" Rob said. "[My agent] was like, 'No one's going to offer you that part.' I was like, thanks for the reassurance."
Well that kind of settles that rumor--doesn't it? If Rob's agent and even Robert Pattinson himself says he won't be playing the lead in Catching Fire, then it has to be true.
Are you disappointed to learn that Rob won't star in The Hunger Games sequel? Who do you suppose with play the role of Finnick Odair instead?
