Will Robert Pattinson Play Finnick Odair In 'Catching Fire'?

Fri, April 20, 2012 3:47pm EDT by 221 Comments

It’s official! Robert Pattinson’s ‘Water for Elephants’ director Francis Lawrence will direct ‘Catching Fire’! Is he going to cast R-Patz as the handsome Finnick Odair?

Finnick O’dair is described in Catching Fire to be very tall, have dreamy eyes, a beautiful head of hair and have many women vying for his heart. Robert Pattinson definitely fits the profile.

Lionsgate offered Francis Lawrence the open director position for the Hunger Games sequel — and considering he’s worked with Rob before on Water for Elephants – we wouldn’t be surprised if he brought him on for Catching Fire.

Yes, The Hunger Games franchise has been very public about keeping away from Twilight, but I think it still could be a possibility.

We can only dream!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Would you like to see Rob play the handsome Finn? Vote and weigh in below.

Um… Let me think about this……..NOOOOO!!!! and I’m not saying no because he quote “ruins things”. He is no where near how the book describes (no abs or any great physique, he isn’t attractive, and not tan.) now, I think a better choice if your going to go twilight is kellen lutz. He has an unbelievable body, sea green eyes, can always dye his hair bronze, and is close to a tan( at least he’s not pale.). And he fits the age perfectly. Kellen lutz all the way!

Ok, you guys need to chill. I obviously don’t want Robert as Finnick because he is already Edward and that needs to be remained. You can’t take two of those enormous roles, for THG and Twilight fans he is always going to be Edward. (I am THG and twilight fan) I think Finnick needs to be perfect and Robert doesn’t fit my image of him.

No..no..no..NO.
If he does it will be a discrace to the book. Finnick is supposed to be GOOD LOOKING…not like Robert Pattinson.
I will officially hate Francis Lawrence if Robert is casted.
Have a nice day now

NO NO NO NO NO!
Robert Pattinson looks nothing like Finnick…..he fits a very simple BASIC description of Finnick.

Finnick is described as being extremely handsome. He is tall, muscular, and athletic, with tan skin, bronze-colored hair, and “incredible” sea green eyes, making him very popular with people in the Capitol.
Katniss says that Finnick never needed to do anything for sponsors, and that no other tribute could overcome his “natural beauty”.

Now Grant Gustin everybody……..he’s a little bit perfect for the role of Finnick

You guys need to chill. Robert did not ruin Harry Potter, he played Cedric well. And to the person who said he’s ruined every movie he’s been in, that’s a lie. I’m willing to bet you’ve only seen him in Twilight. You’re just social bandwagoning, hating on someone because everyone else does. Now, do I want Rob as Finnick? Not really. I have a handful of other people who come to mind first. I just wanted to defend Robert a bit I guess. He and Edward Cullen aren’t the same people. Don’t blame the portrayal of Edward on Rob. He is the actor, the director tells him how to act.

First off, don’t call him ‘Finn’ as NO ONE ever called him that in the books, and his last name is not O’dair. It’s just Odair. Get your facts straight.

I don’t see how he fits the part at all. Way to edit out things like, ‘tan’, ‘abs’ all the characteristics Rob Pat doesn’t have.
He’s already ruined HP for me. He doesn’t need to ruin HG too.
(And since when was Finnick British!!!)
Personally, I like Grant Gustin to play Finnick, but almost anyone will fit the part better then Pattinson in my book.
