Guess who’s been cast in The Hunger Games Movie …

So I was feeling very procrastinatey today and instead of doing work I decided to read the paper and lo and behold apparently the producers of The Hunger Games movie have found their Peeta and Gale. These were my thoughts whilst reading the article:

WTF!?!? When did this happen? Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. Hang on Liam Hemsworth as in the Aussie whose brother was an “actor” (and I use that term lightly) in Home and Away (one of my favourite TV shows, it’s my shameful secret, well you all know now) and dated Miley Cyrus? *Looks down page* Oohhh look Xanadu the Musical is closing …

So if you can’t tell from my scatter brained thoughts that were alternating between the article and the ad for Xanadu the lucky boys that have been given one of the most coveted roles (I read somewhere that the roles were coveted) for any young actor in Hollywood are Josh Hutcherson as Peeta and Liam Hemsworth as Gale. Okay so I haven’t seen anything with either Josh Hutcherson or Liam Hemsworth (I know shock horror I haven’t seen The Last Song!) hence I can’t really comment on their acting chops but lets hope they are both up to it otherwise thee be mutiny by the many rabid Hunger Games fans of which I am one. Hmmm I wonder if Liam Hemsworth will keep his Aussie accent for the role, let’s hope not!

I give you Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale)

If you haven’t heard yet the role of Katniss went to Jennifer Lawrence from Winter’s Bone, I haven’t seen the movie but methinks it was nominated for an Oscar, apparently it was quite good I mean it was nominated. Personally for me Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t really what I had in mind for Katniss, first off Jennifer Lawrence is too old she’s already 20, but who knows and according to my movie maestros, Margaret and David from At The Movies (the best ever movie show in the ABC), she was fantastic in Winter’s Bone so lets hope she’s just as good in The Hunger Games.

I’m going to leave you now with a pearl of wisdom from Miley Cyrus’ twitter account (Nicole this is partly for you because I know how much you love Miley).

“I can say the best news ever now! Dang word travels fast! Liam booked the role of Gale in Hunger Games! I gotta go read all the books now!”

Now Miley apart from your serious overuse of exclamation marks (I thought I was bad) that’s the most intelligent thing I’ve ever heard, yes you all should indeed read The Hunger Games.
