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.”

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 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.
