Jennifer Lawrence: Josh & Liam Are The Perfect Peeta & Gale

Jennifer Lawrence: Josh & Liam Are The Perfect Peeta & Gale

There was definitely some yays and nays when it was announced that Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth were cast as Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthrone in The Hunger Games.

If you’re still not convinced, will leading lady Jennifer Lawrence coming to their defense do it?

The 20-year-old actress tells EW, “[Josh is] charming, he’s sweet, he’s down to earth, he’s normal. He embodies all of it and brings it all to Peeta. So when you meet him he’s got all of these great qualities and every single one of them come across in every line he says out loud as Peeta.”

And what about Liam as Gale? “Liam is just a solid brick of muscle and you look at him and you’re like ‘Oh, okay great!’ But he’s got depth and he’s interesting and at the same time he’s natural and he flows.”

TELL JJJ: Do you think Josh and Liam will do Peeta and Gale justice?
