Jennifer Lawrence on Hunger Games Co-Stars: Perfect!

by at . Comments

Josh Hutcherson? He has brown hair.

Liam Hemsworth? The guy who dated Miley Cyrus?!?

These were the reactions many readers of The Hunger Games had upon learning who would portray Peeta and Gale in the movie version of these books. But co-star Jennifer Lawrence can ease the concerns of any hesitant fans.

"Josh is so charming,” the woman behind Katniss tells Entertainment Weekly. “And when you read in the books about Peeta being able to manipulate anybody - I mean Josh could get, well, I don’t know a metaphor for [this scenario] except for dirty ones. But he’s charming, he’s sweet, he’s down to earth, he’s normal. He embodies all of it and brings it all to Peeta.. he’s got all of these great qualities and every single one of them come across in every line he says out loud as Peeta.”

And Hemsworth?

“Liam is just a solid brick of muscle and you look at him and you’re like ‘Oh, okay great!’” Lawrence says. “But he’s got depth and he’s interesting and at the same time he’s natural and he flows.”

Sounds like Gale to us. The Hunger Games opens on March 23, 2012.
