Why do I have the inexplicable urge to do the Told Ya’ So Dance/ Song Thing? Oh yeah, it’s because I’ve said it multiple times that rumors involving Mr. Robert Pattinson and The Hunger Games franchise are complete and utter fiction, and that you should probably just toss spit-balls at it rather than believe their so-called validity for half a nano second. I also have the urge to go “bitch, please…” and then roll my eyes all dramatic and completely worthy of hate, but you’ll never see that expression, ’cause I currently suck at doing vlogs. Seriously, I really do, everything tends to go wrong, it’s just not pretty– at all.
All right so, this week apparently Mr. Pattinson whilst attending Cannes in promotion for Cosmopolis, got wind of the rumors of him being “courted” for the role of Finnick
Odair, and he took it upon himself to investigate. Smart move, huh? I think so. The man called his agent, and his agent flat-out told him, according to USA Today, that in no uncertain terms that the likelihood of him being approached for the role is pretty much 0%. I unabashedly love this response, because even his agent knows that he’s wrong for the role, and also has the gumption to tell his client that in so many words. Honesty is the best policy right, and honestly, Pattinson will never ever be part of The Hunger Games family. As we’re on the honesty train here, I have to say that I sort of harbor the desire that USA Today didn’t say the rumor that started 1. a Twitter Hash-tag denouncing fans desire for Pattinson to portray Finnick, and 2. at least two petitions against him playing Finnick, was– and I quote “…so good, that they even get the movie stars involved believing.” Really? I think I would have used the word bad instead of good, personally. Anyway, Can we now please go back to thinking on possible candidates for the role who aren’t currently known for playing vampires, pixies, faeries, werewolves, over privileged teens, glee club members, witches, warlocks, aliens, people who have fought aliens while we’re at it, or lastly are only known for portraying total assholes?
Glad That’s over, right?
