We Have Peeta and Gale!!

Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth have been cast as Peeta and Gale. They have the opposite hair colors than the characters in the book, but I think they both look good. (And I can overlook the hair color thing-not sure how Josh would look as a blonde...)

So what do you think? Do you like Peeta and Gale? Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for the news!


  1. I don't like those choices at all! And I'm not sure if Josh will have chemistry with Jennifer.

  2. I have to think that he will-I mean, they did multiple screen tests with Jennifer, so I think it will be good. I also think he can be charming but strong like Peeta.

  3. I actually pictured Josh as Peeta when I read the books, so I'm thrilled!

  4. The only thing I'm not sure about is whether Josh makes a good blonde. I did a little photo shopping. You be the judge.
    As far as acting goes, I'm sure they'll be fine. The director seems to be pretty devoted to getting it just right.

  5. hmmm... well, the hair colour is pretty easy to fix.

    I'm holding hope that they will do fine. Must be lots of pressure for these actors.

  6. Nooooooooo!
    These are not the guys in my head!!

  7. What's that phrase . . . six of one, half a dozen of the other.

    I like Josh and Jennifer quite a bit as actors. I don't like them for the roles though, at all.

    Also, Liam . . . DA-YUM! That dude is hot! I can totally see him as Gale.

  8. Having casted these three leads older than their intended ages, it completely taking away from the cruel, horrible idea of having children fight to the death. That is the whole point of The Hunger Games. They have taken that away by casting these three, especially Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth. It makes me sad, because there are many, many talented young actors out there that could have pulled this off. But, no. I knew from the moment they announced a movie would be made that they would completely blow of the ages of the characters that matter so much. Age is a character itself in this, and they took it away.

  9. I'm trying to keep an open mind. I'm still struggling with the aging up thing. It changes the foundation of the story that these kids are going to be 16-18 years old. I saw Hemsworth in the Sparks movie and don't think he's the strongest actor but Gale isn't as huge a part of the story and isn't overwhelmingly talkative so it might be ok.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
