Robert Pattinson ‘Curious’ About Catching Fire Role

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson admits he was "curious" about starring in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The Twilight Saga star has been linked with the role of Finnick Odair - known by fans of the Suzanne Collins book trilogy for being the victor of the 65th Hunger Games - and while he was intrigued at the prospect of being offered the part, the 26-year-old actor's agent insists he will not be appearing in the movie.

"I woke up and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games. I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent. My agent was like, 'No.' [My agent] was like no one's going to offer you that part. I was like, thanks for the reassurance."

Production on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set to begin this fall ahead of its planned release date in November 2013, with Francis Lawrence - who worked with Robert on 2011 movie Water For Elephants - set to direct the film.
