Ok, Fine, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson In The Hunger Games Is Actually Kind of Genius

By  | 

Congrats, Miley and Vanessa! You officially have the most-wanted boyfs in Hollywood. Entertainment Weekly just showed off the first images of Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson from the sorta-big-deal upcoming flick, The Hunger Games, and we are in love! At first we couldn’t exactly see J.Hutch playing shaggy-blond-haired/blue-eyed Peeta Mellark, but after seeing the EW cover, we gladly changed our minds. (Just look at those new biceps!)

Next to 5’7″ Jennifer Lawrence, fans were worried that small-framed Josh would look too petite. But he tells EW:

“Jennifer’s not two feet taller than me! If anything, maybe she’s a half inch taller.”

As for Liam, the director 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.”

Hunk is an understatement! This week’s issue of EW hits newsstands tomorrow (July 29)! Will you pick it up? Do you think Liam and Josh were good picks for Gale and Peeta? Sound off in the comments!
