They seem to have found a couple in Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. Hemsworth is currently the frontrunner for Gale Hawthorne, while Hutcherson is considered the man to beat for Peeta Mallark. Deadline reports that Hawthorne is Katniss Everdeen’s (Jennifer Lawrence) hunting partner, while Mallark is “the baker’s son.” Which I guess means that there’s a baker in the mix, too. No news on who might play that role, so I’m gonna go ahead and throw out John C. Reilly.
Josh Hutcherson is next starring in Detention with Dane Cook, so he could probably use this ego boost whereas Hemsworth is best-known for his on-again, off-again relationship with Miley Cyrus. This is gonna be the best movie…(Deadline)
