Robert Pattinson To Join Hunger Games Cast?
The sequel to the blockbuster movie The Hunger Games is already one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2013 and it hasn't even started filming yet. Casting rumors have been swirling for months and the latest rumor has created a totally sparkly sh*tstorm on the internet. It's hard to even write this without becoming paralyzed with dread....Robert Pattinson as Finnick Odair. This 'dude' :
In a part that should clearly be played by this dude:
OMG. Wouldn't he be perfect? We know he can do hot. We know he can do devoted lover to a woman who ends up disconnected from reality. Plus he's like a real life hero. I would totally accept his sugar cube any day of the week. And yes, that is a euphemism. I think. Oh sorry, I got distracted in a fantasy.
Well, apparently I'm not the only one who is outraged by the potential ruination of The Hunger Games Franchise. #PattinsonIsNotFinnick was trending worldwide yesterday. And if you love reading various ways of dissing Robert Pattinson, it is a must read. Here are a few stellar examples:
Now lending a little credence to the rumors is the fact that Robert's Water For Elephants director, Francis Lawrence, is helming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Ugh. I can't even. It saddens me to know that there are girls in this world who are thrilled with this news. For them a Hunger Games/Twilight mash-up is something they've written unappealing fan fiction about for months. For all of us who now find Goblet of Fire forever sullied by the presence of a Cullen, we know how potentially horrifying this could be. Can't Twilight stick to just making Twilight suck??
I guess looking on the bright-side, if this were to happen(shudder), we have a Pattinson beheading by lizard/human mutations to look forward to.
Who do you think should play Finnick? Let me know in the comments or @desijedeikin!
