YA Movie News: Peeta and Gale

News has been released about the actors who are in the running for Peeta and Gale in The Hunger Games movie. I'm rooting for Hunter Parrish because to me, he just looks like Peeta. And I have to say I'm very happy that Alex Pettyfer isn't on the list-I just don't think he could pull of the charm of Peeta! Maybe this leaves him open for The Mortal Instruments movie??
Hopefully we'll get our Peet and Gale cast soon-who are you rooting for?
And for a random fun link, I love this interview with Emma Roberts. I think she might be my new favorite star for her gushing over YA books!


  1. I am rooting for Hunter too. He just seems so genuine and likable and boy next door. Fingers crossed!

  2. I think Hunter looks okay for Peeta in that picture, but I'm more for Josh Hutcherson ... Grow that hair out and dye it and - bam! :P

  3. I was surprised to see that David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place...Justin) is in the running for Gale...I do like him, but I don't think he's right for Gale...I wish Ben Barnes was younger because he would be SUCH a good Gale I think...guess we'll find out soon!

  4. This is so exciting--also Im SO glad Alex P isn't in the running--I just couldn't see it!

  5. I'm definitely routing for Hutcherson. He has the right body type and he is closest in age. I also think his jawline gives him the right Peeta quality. He is young and cute, but there is something deeper in his eyes and the shape of his face.

    I like Hunter Parrish on Weeds, but I don't see how he could be Peeta at all. He's more of a District 1 contender!

  6. Hunter is a cutie & well over 18. I like to be able to crush with out guilt.
    I couldn't agree with you more about Alex Pettyfer, Jace yes, Peeta NO!

  7. I'm glad they are looking at less mainstream actors for these parts. I get why Katniss needed to be more brand name but an up and comer for Peeta and Gale seems like the right thing to do.
