    He isn't what I pictured Peeta to look like, and Liam isn't how I imagined Gale

    @abby I 100% agree with you!! Josh is perffect for the role of peseta! I can't wait for the movie I know it's going to be amazing. And that is a great pic of josh!!! So good looking!!!!!!

    I like Liam as Gale. I agree with Melanie, I don't like Josh as Peeta... not a good fit as far as I'm concerned.

    i cannot think of another human being playing peeta. he is so perfect for the role it hurts.

    Are they going to dye his hair lighter though? He looks like a Peeta...kind of friendly and a bit geeky. Very genuine looking...

    Personally, I really like Josh Hutcherson for Peeta. Have you haters even SEEN his past interviews? He has the eloquence Peeta has and he has Peeta's personality. Plus, PEETA IS NOT SCRAWNY. Peeta lifts hundreds of pounds of flour and other stuff for the bakery, and he has muscles. Josh has Peeta's personality and the role will come naturally to him, but I just can't see Alex Pettyfer with Peeta's nice and straighforward personality.

    I agree 100%, the two of them need to switch roles.. he is a scrawny little thing.. Peeta was not scrawny!!

    I dont think he's good for the role of Peeta. I read the book and I take my characters very seriously and to me he's just all wrong for the part

    He should have been cast as Gale and Liam Hemsworth as Peeta .. I cant picture him as a blonde .
