Finally, Katniss has her two male leads. Josh Hutcherson joins the cast as the lovable and sensitive Peeta, while Liam Hemsworth will play the strong and loyal Gale. In case you want to judge their acting abilities for yourself, you can watch Josh Hutcherson in Bridge to Terabithia, Cirque du Freak, and The Kids Are All Right. Liam Hemsworth played the hunky male lead in The Last Song. Personally, while neither were my top choices, I’m definitely satisfied with them and interested to see their portrayals of Peeta and Gale alongside Jennifer Lawrence.
What do you guys think of the choices? Were they picked for acting ability or looks? And now, who will they cast as Haymitch, Rue, and Effie?
