Two months ago, Entertainment Weekly gave readers their first look at Jennifer Lawrence in the main Hunger Games role of Katniss Everdeen.

Hemsworth, of course, is mostly known for dating Miley Cyrus. But director Gary Ross stands up for the Australian actor in an interview with the magazine and says:

“On first glance he’s such a hunk that it’s easy to just sort of ascribe a hunk-like simplicity to him. But this is a phenomenally subtle actor.”

After word of a lasuwit emerged I thought for sure the collection was dead and then I read on Crushable that Lionsgate finally CONFIRMED that the collection is indeed happening but that the theme, and


Never a T. Swift fan but this is aatcully a good song and very different from her usual song themes and thats saying something. Sounds very different from her usual monotone songs


At first I thought that josh would not be good for the part but now I think he is perfect because in the first book it describes him as blond, blue eyes, stocky, and on the shorter side. Josh fits the description completely!!!!!!!!! Who else could play that??? Josh could totally pull it off he is such a great actor. Liam can also play a good gale because he is tall good looking and can play an intense character that has problems of their own. I think the cast is perfect now we just need to see how the movie turns out!!!!!!


i love the fact that peeta is josh i really think he can pull it off
wooohooo i cant wait for the movie


i think Liam is best for gale while i was reading the book i actuly thought he would be good at that person... well i think so anyways.and i agree with Morgan they are too old!plus Hollywood101 has a piont, they are bolth extremly HOT so it will sell trust me!


I think Josh Hutcherson is perfect for the role of Peeta. Liam looks wrong for the part...but thats just my opinion. I think Josh is a better actor all together and I think he's a lot more well rounded.


Makes me wonder if thay make a second movie who wil play finick


>.< mkay liam looks older than he usually does and Josh is a little -.- not peeta ish


ya but Katniss said he was super buff from years of lifting sacks of flower!


i love Josh Hutcherson! Sure he'd be great in this film.
