After months of speculation, two key roles have been filled in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘ The Hunger Games.
Actor Josh Hutcherson (from The Kids Are Alright) will play Peeta Mellark and Liam Hemsworth (from The Last Song) will play Gale Hawthorne. Earlier this year, Jennifer Lawrence was cast as the heroine, Katniss Everdeen. YouTube has been full of fan-made trailers for the movie for months.
Here’s more about the coveted roles, from the release: “Peeta accompanies heroine Katniss Everdeen into the 74th annual Hunger Games as the male tribute chosen from their native District 12, the most remote and marginalized district of all the subjugated districts of Panem … Though Katniss and Gale have never had a romantic relationship, they share a transcendent bond, often of few words.”
