Casting Couch: Who Should Play Peeta in ‘The Hunger Games’?

Is Alex a Bad Boy?
Why is Pettyfer getting a bad rep?
The Hunger Games, an upcoming film based on the hit book series which many have pegged as the next Twilight, doesn’t come out for another year — but that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from constantly speculating about casting.

While Winter Bone‘s Jennifer Lawrence seems to be a front runner for the female lead of Katniss Everdeen, (despite some question on her fair looks, as Katniss is described as olive toned), there is still debate on who should play the role of her male ally Peeta in the film about a post-apocolyptic America.

So far it seems to be between newcomers Josh Hutcherson, Alex Pettyfer and (the most recent to enter the game) Hunter Parrish. But which one of these rising stars has what it takes to take on The Hunger Games on the big screen?

Who better to judge than the fans themselves? Celebuzz started a debate over on our Facebook page, we we want your input.

Think Vanessa Hudgens‘ new main squeeze is the perfect fit? Should the Weeds star take the role? How about the hunky I Am Number Four star — do rumors of his diva-tude throw him out the running? Sound off on Facebook page or even tweet us @CELEBUZZ!
