We’ve known for a couple of weeks now that Jennifer Lawrence is our Katniss, but now the main guy players have been announced as well. According to EW.com, Peeta Mellark will be played by Josh Hutcherson, most recently seen in The Kids Are Alright with Julianne Moore and Annette Bening. That’s him on the left up there. It sounds like Hutcherson has been longing to play Peeta and is excited about the role, so hopefully that enthusiasm will result in a great performance. Meanwhile, Liam Hemsworth will be handling the role of Gale Hawthorne. He’s an Australian actor who was last seen in The Last Song with Miley Cyrus, who he reportedly has an on-and-off relationship with. Liam’s the guy on the right. So what do you guys think? Do they look like your visions of Peeta and Gale?
