Hutcherson, Hemsworth Play “Hunger Games”

With Jennifer Lawrence locked in for the role of Katniss Everdeen in the “Hunger Games” film adaptation for Lionsgate, the studio is now looking into filling the two main lead male roles – love interest Peeta and mentor/potential love interest Gale.

Josh Hutcherson, Lucas Till, Hunter Parrish, Alexander Ludwig and Evan Peters are all said to be up for the role of Peeta, while Liam Hemsworth, David Henrie, Robbie Amell and Drew Roy are up for Gale says Heat Vision.

Testing for the role is taking place yesterday with many of these actors. If they are cast it will likely be multi-picture deals.
