Hold up! Those pesky rumours about TWILIGHT vamp Robert Pattinson being up for the part of Finnick Odair in THE HUNGER GAMES sequel? All false. Pattinson confessed to USA Today, "I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent … [my agent] was like no one's going to offer you that part… I was like, thanks for the reassurance."
Other actors who are rumoured to be possibilities for the part include Daniel Newman, Zac Efron, Jesse Williams and Chace Crawford.
With production beginning this fall on THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE (yes, that's the official title for the sequel!), we expect to confirm the casting of Finnick and the other former Games winners soon. Stay tuned!
