Fans are finally getting a peek at how Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth will look as Peeta and Gale in The Hunger Games.
The two actors have been subject of much speculation for looking so different from the way author Suzanne Collins described both characters in the books, but now that should change.
Hutcherson dyed his hair blonde and bulked up his arms to play the son of a baker who must compete in the annual games. The 18 year-old told EW he worked on his arms so he could believably play a guy who lifts heavy bags of flour and sugar as his father’s assistant.
Hemsworth also changed his hair color to a deeper shade of brown and is thinner than we’ve seen him in the past.
Director Gary Ross said people will be very surprised about Hemsworth in the film.
“On first glance he’s such a hunk that it’s easy to just sort of ascribe a hunk-like simplicity to him,” says the director. “But this is a phenomenally subtle actor.”
Hemsworth and Hutcherson have really bonded while filming in North Carolina and became great friends. Josh even invited Liam to head to Kentucky for a dinner with his family at his grandmother’s home and the two may decide to share a house in Los Angeles.
The Hunger Games is due in theaters in March of 2012.
