We Cast The ‘Hunger Games’ With Real Child Stars

Peter Costa vs. Webster Long

The Cosby Show’s Peter Costa isn’t really known for his bravery. Time and time again, he flees to safety at the first sign of trouble. Webster Long, however, is a survivor. His dimunitive size could be a problem but given his experience with utilizing secret passageways, he can easily level the scales.

Advantage: Webster Long

Jessica & Susie Martin vs. Ben Sandwich

The younger brother to Bread Sandwich, Ben Sandwich is the alternate version of Ben Savage in the Boy Meets World universe. He’s arrogant and mean. Sounds like a Career Tribute to me.

Given his size, strength, and viciousness, it would take an alliance to bring him down. And who’s tighter than How The West Was Fun’s Martin sisters? They finish each others sentences and are pretty good with weapons. However, that bond could also be their weakness if they aren’t tempered to go on without one another. But with a little work on their weapons-handling, they can cut this Sandwich in half.

Advantage: Jessica & Susie Martin

Harriet Brindle vs. Baby Bink

Naturally, an eleven-year old girl has what it takes to overpower and murder a young baby. But Baby Bink is no ordinary baby. The kid is absolutely fearless and as demonstrated in Baby’s Day Out, damn near invincible. Through sheer luck, he was able to not only outwit and defeat three adult male kidnappers, but also survive the perils of an active construction site. The arena should pose no problems for him.

Small Wonder’s Harriet Brindle would need to rely on her advanced sneakiness if she wanted to fair well. Even then, it comes down to Bink’s luck. Will it run out? The kid’s got a guardian angel watching over him. I should also note he has a pretty good mentor as well. Head of the Class’s Arvid, winner of the 13th Child Star Hunger Games.

Advantage: Baby Bink
