Max Irons Turned Down Role in an Established Movie Series


Digital Spy has a story about Max Irons in relation to a certain role he turned down.  Irons has been in the midst of doing promotion for The White Queen on BBC and Starz.  Here is the portion of the interview that is the most interesting:

He told DuJour magazine (via The Mirror): “I was recently up for a large part in a franchise, a very well-established franchise, and I said, ‘I can’t do it’. No matter how you spin it to me, it was a version of the two parts I played before [in Red Riding Hood and The Host].

“I’m very grateful these films got my foot in the door, but if I do it again, I’ll want to quit acting.”

It looks like he is done playing the young, handsome man in a love story.  But what if a sequel ever gets made for The Host?  Will he reprise the role if there is a role to reprise?

My guess for the well-established movie series is The Hunger Games and possibly he was offered the role of Finnick.

    i agree with you, the first thing that came to mind was the hunger games. and he would have been a fantastic Fennick!
    but i get where Max is coming from, he’s very much like his father in that respect. its all about the creativity, if there isn’t any of that then what’s the point?

    The role that Max might be is alluding to could be Jace Wayland in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Apparently he auditioned for it.
