Rumor has it that Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson is in the running to take on The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire role of Finnick Odair, a former tribute with an eye for the ladies, who gets dragged into the Third Quarter Quell (When the Hunger Games tributes are made up of previous winners).
It’s pretty much what you would expect from an Internet rumor, there is the flimsy connection that Water For Elephants collaborator Francis Lawrence is now filling the Catching Fire director’s chair, the upcoming end of the Twilight Saga that leaves Pattinson free for other projects, and there is the Hollywood marketing hope of merging the Twilight and Hunger Games rabid fan-bases.

What do you think, can Pattinson pull off the outrageous character of Finnick? If not who would you cast in the role?
