You read right, y'all! We have our Peeta and Gale. In case you were hanging out under a rock a few hours ago when the news broke, let me dish it out for you.
Peeta will be played by Josh Hutcherson who is no stranger to the whole Books Into Movies racket. He previously starred in Cirque de Freak: The Vampire's Assistant and Bridge to Terabithia. Most recently, he played in the movie The Kids Are All Right.
Playing Gale will be Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth. You probably know him as Miley Cyrus' love interest in The Last Song.
i'm not really all that jazzed about either choice. Although, truth be told, i never really had an actor in mind for either of them so i can't be that disappointed. They just aren't what i pictured either character looking like. But who knows? Perhaps i could be totally wrong and when the movie actually comes out i'll be all swoonarific about both of them.
So what do y'all think? Dream cast or no? Dish copious shizz in the comments please.
Now the waiting game continues for all of our other fave characters. (Who will be Rue? Cinna? Haymitch?)
