I don't want your bull when I say this, but I'm actually pleased. Although I believe they could be swapped roles (Liam be Peeta, Josh be Gale) based on their looks, I'm not entirely disappointed. It's not like they just walked in and they were given the roles, do you remember how long they've been in this process? Obviously they've worked hard for these roles, and if they get it, they get it. Congrats to them. It's just like any other book series that get made into movies. Most people hate the person they cast, but they end up being /really/ great. So I hope it works out like that. (:

Hmh, i suppose youre right. They must've earned the roles but i still fear that their already stardom may ruin the true essence of the series. I mean i just dont want my favorite book series to have the injustice of being shown through a horrible movie.

Casting could be worse. Though I'm not too pleased with Liam, I'm willing to give him a chance. As for Josh, just dye his hair, give him contacts and he's more of the Peeta I personally imagined than any other candidate. Everyone had their own version of these characters and had already picked out their favorite actors, so it makes sense for people to be upset at the moment. But that could change if you actually see them all in character. So far, I'm having flashbacks from when the cast for Twilight was released. The fans now are acting just as bad as the Twilight ones back then. Then again, I'm guessing a fair amount of you could possibly be the same fans.

I guess I'm just a bit more open minded than most fans. I don't want to complain since there's no point in doing so; there's nothing to benefit from complaining.

im not pleased with liam either i think he looks to old. its true there really is no benefit to complaining but idk i have a habbit of complaining:/

There's a lot of movies and tv shows where they cast someone in their 20s to play a teenager. So I guess I'm used to having to look at actors who are look "too old" for a part. I think a lot of people have that same habit. I know I'm guilty of complaining about something, but that's usually because I know for a fact of how terrible [in my opinion] a particular actor/actress is. I can't say that about Liam or even Jenn since I've never seen their movies. Josh, on the other hand, I know is a fairly decent actor since I've seen a few of his movies.

Just wow....right now, in my opinion, the Hunger Games movie seems almost butchered due to the casting. Hopefully, it will be a LOT better when the movie actually comes out. =(

Eh... Liam is okay, but Josh is just horrible. I'm seriously disapointed with the casting director about this choice. He just doesn't seem Peeta-ish at all to me. Hopefully they can turn it around and this movie won't end up like The Lightning Thief.

Yes! I totally agree! But I hate Liam more. I can kind of see Josh but he has to die his hair and work our more for me to be happy with him or even ok with him. Liam is not a bad ass!

@Kaylap~ Have you seen a movie where Liam has to be a "bad ass"? If you haven't then you can't really say that, because you never know. He could be a really good Gale for all of us know. You haven't seen him have to act like Gale and in that setting. He could pull it off and I think he can.

I just found out and this is awful. They don't look like anything like how they were described in the book. I am ashamed to know that Suzanne allowed this to happen. This casting blows! All I can say is that they better do a hell of a job on the costume and makeup department. And they better act exceptional with no country accents!

I'd kill them if they did a country accent. I live in appalachia, which is where District 12 is located, and even I hate the accent that most of us have.

I can't believe this!!! The casting is already foul rubbish! These actors and the director better do a damn good job because if they don't then it will make the whole series look bad. I'll be very mad if it is a bad movie but Josh did a good job in Bridge to Terabithia so hopefully he will be good but Miley Cyrus's Ex boyfriend as Gale? Really? Its just not right.

Why does Liam's realtionship to Miley Cyrus matter in his role to this series? What he does outside of his acting career doesn't matter. As long as he is a good actor then it's all good. You can always change the looks if thats what you worrieng about.

Yeah Liam Hemsworth just seems odd. Josh Hutcherson does have the boyish quality I imagined for Peeta, but Liam Hemsworth seems to take it a bit far bec the Gale i imagined wasnt so hardcore looking. Do you get me?
Anna-Wee posted over a year ago

In the second book when Peeta hits the forcefield, “His lashes flutter open and his eyes meet mine. “Careful,” he says weakly. “There’s a force field up ahead.” I can definitely see Josh saying this.

Well first it's straight off sh-t.I mean...WHAT THE HELL!!!They both have short hair.
And hell you don't put Liam Hemsworth in the role if he's from The Last Song which is with that Salvia girl in it.Oh yeah what's her name? Miley Cyrus!!!I say horrible. Both horrible!!! I mean Gale is 16. Liam is like...oh what 20..something.Late 20's.That's crap.I really don't think they both actually got the role people.Gosh.

Dude, calm down. Liam has to do is grow out his hair and maybe change the color. It's not all looks. Besides his role in the Last Song has nothing to do with this movie. What does Miley Cyrus have to do with Liam? Wasn't his fault he was forced to work with her. And so what if Gale is 16? A little make up and you could make Josh look older or younger.
redhawks posted over a year ago

Gale in the first book was actually 18, Katniss and Peeta were 16... just saying and remember Katniss says Gale looks like a man already.

Yeah, now that you mention it I can so see Liam being Gale. I completely forgot how old Gale was in the first book...
redhawks posted over a year ago
redhawks said:
To be honest with you I can see Josh as Peeta OR Gale completely. I think Josh is a pretty good actor and he can definatly pull of either one. I say good choice there.

If Liam grows out his hair JUST A LITTLE then I think he'd be a pretty good Gale apperance wise. Acting skills I think he can totally pull of Gale's...personality.

I can't wait for the movie. I have a feeling I'm gonna like it.

Although I think that Liam has nothing to do with Gale but still at some point I think that Liam might make it work
As to Josh , I dont even want to start because if I do I will just sit there and cry

But my question is why do they get acters that look nothing like the characters and dye their hair and make them wear lances and all ... cant they just find some people that actually look like them ??!!

They didn't just pick Josh and Liam for nothing. They obvisoly had SOME reason for it. They may not look the part, but according to Suzane Collins Josh was perfect for the role along with Liam. (I know this because I was reading an article) II mean it's not all based on looks. They have to play the part. You can change how well they act the part. So, you have to find a person who fits the part by ways of acting. You can always change the looks. Looks don't matter too much when they are casting, because like I said you can always change them.
redhawks posted over a year ago

Why do you not like Josh? As redhawks said, looks are nothing, acting is what is important, and if you've seen the movie, Bridge to Terabithia, you'll know what a good actor he is.
THG123 posted over a year ago

I did watch Bridge to Terabithia and I never said that Josh wasnt a good actor Im just saying that he has nothing to do with Peeta and although looks arent everything but they are important ...

Agreed. Gale doesn't really have a role in the first book, till then maybe he'll let his hair grow.

I am terribly disappointed with the casting director of this movie. None of the currently cast actors look anything like their book counterparts, and they are also far too old (Except perhaps Josh. I'm unsure on his age. ).

I don't blame the actors, because I am sure they will all do their best and they all have talents, and they worked very hard to get their roles.

With that said, the casting director needs to rethink his or her career choice, because he/she isn't very good!

Don't worry, they will fix that, you don't think Suzanne will leave Peeta without ashy blonde hair and blue eyes, do you? These actors are good, all their movies have great reviews and I've watched a few and loved them. I have faith in these actors, sorry you're disappointed :(

No! i think this is perfect casting!! it might be because i knew they were going to play the characters before i read the book soo i visualized them while reading(most of my freinds that read the books before the cast was announced were skeptical)i think they will do an amazing job there both such talented actors but i guess we wont know until the movie comes out!!

If you mean the casting choice for peeta and Gale then somewhat yes. Gale, Liam Hemsworth is perfect as gale but the choice for peeta made me pissed off. Josh Hutcherson isn't what I pictured for Peeta, hell he isn't even cute. They could have picked anyone else that was better like Austin Butler. Now that guy is a total babe <3

Wow... wow... WOW.

I think I might cry. Not because of the casting, but when I read THIS!

Personaly I think Jen is the PERFECT person for Katniss and when the movie came out it proved my point. I was shocked. Jenn was EXACTLY how I pictured Katniss.

Gale - One of my least favorite people in the books but in the movie? He kicked butt and thanks to the movie he moved up A LOT on my list. He was perfect for me. Not exactly how I pictured Gale looking, but it was close enough to please me. And who are we to say all these horrible things on how he did when all together, he had maybe a whole 15 minutes is the 2 hour movie!

Peeta - Peeta is apart of my top 3 people and I must admite, he was not exactly what I pictured Peeta looking like but again, it was enough to please me. And Josh did a wonderful job at playing Peeta! He had that part nailed!

Sorry if I let loose some, but some of the comments really bugged me. (As I'm sure you can now tell.) All I have to say is thank God no one said anything about Haymitch and Ceaser! I would've gone nuts.
