apparently we will know by Tuesday (or shortly afterwards)

Quote:
Last night we shared information we received from a source saying that none of the actors who tested for Peeta had heard any casting decisions yet, despite rumors of Josh Hutcherson being the front runner (still no confirmation one way or the other on that rumor). And that the actors would basically be in a holding pattern and under confidentiality agreements until their test deals expire on Tuesday.

We had some questions from readers about what exactly this means and what these test deals are, and since we're not industry experts, we got some additional clarification.

All of the actors who tested for the role of Peeta (check out the alleged short list) already have their contracts in place with the studio. So at the end of the test period - which is Tuesday - the studio will chose one of the actors and it's a done deal; the actor chosen cannot opt to turn it down since they already have a contract.

This means that a decision on who will play Peeta should be made by Tuesday, and hopefully an official confirmation on the decision will be announced by Lionsgate shortly after.

No word on the timetable for Gale casting, but we'll let know if we hear anything!

I really hope it's Hunter Parrish. I can't see Josh Hutcherson playing at all. He's so not right for the role. And he's short.

For Gale, I'm pulling for Taylor Kitsch. He's perfect!

Taylor´s character in Friday Night Lights was like Gale, he can really act the part.
Anyone knows casting rumors about other characters? when are they supposed to start shooting?

^They're supposed to start shooting this year...late May or early June.

There hasn't been much casting news. Just speculation from fans.

I'd love to see Hunter Parish play Peeta! Josh Hutcherson is completely wrong for the part!

Well it's Official. Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth have been cast to play Peeta and Gale, respectively in the upcoming Hunger Games adaptation.

I'm really shocked by this casting. Neither of them are even remotely close to how I imagined Peeta and Gale:

Peeta


Gale


Here's the article from Entertainment Weekly
Quote:
'Hunger Games' casts Peeta and Gale: Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth nab the roles
by Jeff Labrecque

Josh Hutcherson (The Kids are All Right) and Liam Hemsworth (The Last Song) have joined the cast of Hunger Games in the roles of Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne, respectively, Lionsgate announced today in a release. Both actors will star opposite Jennifer Lawrence, who will play Katniss Everdeen, the heroine who volunteers to represent her remote district in the brutal annual survival test. Hutcherson, for one, has long thought he was right for the part: Check out his Q&A with EW’s Karen Valby at SXSW, in which the actor talks about his desire to play Peeta.

The Hunger Games, based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling trilogy, will be directed by Gary Ross and released by Lionsgate on March 23, 2012.

booh! I wanted Parrish as Peeta
they don´t even look like the book description, I can´t picture them as Peeta and Gale...
that Hemsworth guy was in a Miley Cyrus movie?! is he a good actor?
Hutcherson was ok in The Kids Are All Right but nothing great... and now he has to die his hair blonde and wear blue contact lenses, it´s hard to think he can pull it off...

wonder how die hard fans are reacting... if some weren´t happy with Lawrence as Katniss I can´t believe they´ll be happy with this casting.

How tall is Jennifer?! Cos I saw Josh on E! red carpet and he was shorter than Ryan Seacrest!!! It would look odd if she was towering over him.

Aside from that, he seems like a nice guy and he's a good actor too.

^IKR! you´d think they´ll hire hot guys to attract female audience! it´s not an easy subject to sell and it barely has "romance", I don´t see girls who haven´t read the book wanting to see the movie if the actor is not really hot... I can´t picture any chemistry between Jennifer and Josh or Liam.

LOL @ myself for going on and on about how much I hate the cast of the guys
but if they hired them they must have good reason.

I don't think they'll be targeting girls. The Hunger Games is a series that attracts both males and females.
And the romance is not the central point of the story. There's barely any romance at all. It's essentially a book about a revolution.

So, I think that explains why they're not casting for looks, which means they must be casting for talent.
Jennifer Lawrence is a good sign, because she's an Oscar nominated actress. Josh is great from what I've seen, but I don't know about Liam.
His brother, Chris, is a really good actor, so hopefully it runs in the family.

I'm still shocked, but I'm going to hold my judgement until I see the movie. T
he author was involved in the casting process, so hopefully that's a good sign.
And to answer your questions, the fangirls are PISSED that Hunter Parrish wasn't cast as Peeta.

Oh and btw, there's no way Josh and Liam are the same height. No way.
