The Hunger Games Casts Its Two Male Leads


The Hunger Games has cast its two male leads: Josh Hutcherson, who appeared in The Kids Are All Right and more recently in lots of photographs with Vanessa Hudgens, will be playing the sweet, love-struck baker's son Peeta. Liam Hemsworth, whose big credit is being Miley Cyrus's ex (fine, he also appeared in her movie The Last Song), will be playing the rebel Gale. Hunger Games fans had been pushing for Hunter Parrish to play the part of the blond Peeta, but alas. Guess Hutcherson, like Jennifer Lawrence, will have to familiarize himself with hair dye.
