Wow, you guys. Calm down. Even if this is true, he is not a bad actor. And will this REALLY keep any of you from seeing the movies? Really? No. As far as actors go, they could pick worse.
Again, odds are this isn't true.
Not to mention the fact that what people consider "hot" is largely subjective. I bet whoever they cast as Finnick will be a disappointment to some/most =/
All I want from the actor who plays Finnick (don't care who): dark/tan skin, finely chiselled body, mysterious and playful/flirty. I think if they find an actor who looks like the former and acts like the latter they're all set! biggrin
They never actually stated Robert Pattinson was going to play it, they just suggested it because the director is francis lawrence who directed another movie rob was in. I don't know why, it seems a bit of a stretch.
so ******** what if he gets casted? It's not like his only film role was Edward Cullen. rolleyes Have you all forgotten that he was Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter? I thought he did a much better job there than in Twilight (although he didn't have many speaking parts).
