Robert Patterson will NOT play Finnick. From the man himself:
“I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games,” Pattinson tells USA TODAY. “I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent.”
“My agent was like, ‘No,’ ” Pattinson reports.
“(My agent) was like no one’s going to offer you that part,” Pattinson says, breaking into a laugh. “I was like, thanks for the reassurance.”
You know, that's kind of sad. I have quite a lot of time for Robert Pattinson and it really sucks that his involvement in an awful franchise with a big love/hate base (that he signed on for before he'd read the books because his agent told him to, no less) means he can't get roles in things he could have been brilliant in. Personally, I don't think he has the right look or style for Finnick, but still. It's sad that the automatic reaction is OMFG HAAAAAAAEEET!
