Robert Pattinson, The Hunger Games, Catching Fire
The Hunger Games
I'd walk over hot coals to see Robert Pattinson in ANY movie...He can just stand still and I'd still pay to see him...Who are these weird kids saying no...apparently they DO NOT UNDERSTAND the Robert Pattinson fan base...or the fact that he IS a very good actor, as every single director and actor who has worked with him has said. You want to critize his acting skills, then be a member of the craft and really understanf it...like ALL the well known directors and actors who have worked with him...sitting home sucking your thumbs and being negative only shows how very little you know.... not too bright!
Robert Pattinson is a good actor, but he is not fit to portay Finnick in Catching Fire. If anyone should play Finnick, it's Ian Somerhalder (actor from The Vampire Diaries). Finnick is supposed to be strong, handsome, and have amazing eyes. Ian Somerhalder has all of those qualities. He would be an absolute perfect match for Finnick. I pictured Ian as Finnck when I read the books, and I would really like to see him on the big screen in the movie.
If Ian Somerhalder can play a strong, dark, sexy vampire, I think he can play a strong, sexy Finnick.
I would cry out of anger if Rob Pattinson got the part of Finnick, he's so not the type, he's too lean, and in my opinon, not that good looking. I really hope he doesn't get the part
i think, if he could bulk up... quite a bit, since he's SO skinny... and get a tan, he would be a good match.
I think they should get Tom Welling. The actor who played clark kent on smallville. He is tall,dark, handsome and already built.
NOOOOOOOO! he obviously cannot play Finick!!! hes to depressing and does nto seem like someone who can be the fun, flirty, easy going character that Finnick is, and honestly, i think that Finnick should be more good looking! there are a million other people that can play Finnick but please not rob!! i love robert pattinson but he is not the fit character to play this! THIS CANNOT HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
absolutely not. he is not finnick no matter how good his acting is. finnicks looks are such an important part of him and rob just doesnt work at all.
No offense but, Pattinson Couldnt pull off Finnick Odair. Looks dont get you everything especialy in the hunger games. Finnick is much more Way all around. Pattinson was ok for the twilight but, please I dont think he would be the right selection for this role.
I always pictured someone like Justin Hartley or Chris Zylka playing the role of Finnik. I think one them would be great at it.
please do not even THINK about putting any of the twilight cast in the movie. sure they are good and all but keep those fandoms SEPERATE. and kellan is way too agressive looking and buff to be finnick, i think someone similar to alex pettyfer, doesnt have to be exactly him but someone like him. robert would be too little of casting, he wouldnt live up to the role, and kellan would be over doing it
He does not match finnick at all it would be a horrible match up....
Robert Pattinson for Finnick Odair, for Hunger Games period, is wrong. I'm hoping no one from Twilight even touches this series. It's bad enough people have to get on the Team Peeta / Team Gale bandwagon, but putting Pattinson in such an important role when he doesn't fit the character and isn't even that great of an actor... I'm not even for bashing Robert Pattinson. I just don't think he should play Finnick. When I see the movie I want to swoon when I see Finnick, not shrug, not role my eyes, not say, "Oh THAT'S Finnick?" We have hotter hunks. Come on now, Hollywood.
From the moment I read they wanted him for Odair, I said NO!!! Not the right build.
I absolutely do not want Robert Pattinson as Finnick. I think they really have some work do to as far as the next movie goes. The first movie was a HUGE let down. As readers, we immerse ourselves in these stories, invest our time, and when they are made to movies, we want them to be as true to the stories as they can.... I know that no movie can be exactly like a book, I mean, who has 6hrs to sit at a movie.... But at leat try a little harder... I mean, you are bringing these stories to life for us. I guess what I suggest, is that someone who actually read the books, and like them for that matter, should be behind the making of the movie. Also, what is this about the next movie being the sequel? Shouldn't there be 3 movies?
NOOOOOOOOO!!!! Please from the bottom and utmost deepest part of my heart DON"T have him as Finick Odair.... I beg... He's my favoritest character in the whole series... make him perfect, handsom, tan, red headed, built, and not Robert Pattinson...
I always imagined a young matthew mcconaughey. so... NO! Rob is not near as attractive or fit as Finnick would be
Back to the original question....Rob can totally play Finnick. He is perfect & who I pictured in the role the many times I read the books. But....I thought there was a decision that noone from the Twilight Saga cast could be cast in the Hunger Games.
NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! DON'T DO IT!!!! IT WOULD RUIN THE MOVIE!!!!!!!!!
WOW - everyone needs to chill - it's a movie. Katniss is a character in a movie. This discussion is bizarre. Pretend Katniss is whatever ethnic group you want her to be. She's not a real person so her skin color and nationality is actually quite unimportant. That said, the books are wonderful. Do you know what District you live in? I'm in District 12.
I'm in 13!
THANK YOU, OH VOICE OF REASON!!! We District 12 citizens have to stick together!
I do like Robert Pattison and I would love him to be in the new movie but not finnick. It's not the right match. They should either leave him out completely or make him a different character. I didn't imagine finnick anything like rob.
No, no, no. Robert Pattinson is definitely NOT Finnick. I hate the comparison of The Hunger Games to Twilight. Both movies are totally seperate an different. I think it should be kept this way.
Garrett Hedlund would be the PERFECT Finnick Odair.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
