First Look at Gale and Peeta from The Hunger Games
Posted 07.27.11 by Chris
Back in May we got our first look at Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) when The Hunger Games heroine graced the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Now, thanks to the same magazine, we have our first look at the men from Hunger Games — Peeta and Gale, played by Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, respectively.
The issue, out Friday, also includes interviews with the two actors, where they talk about their characters. According to the article, director Gary Ross had to fight to cast Hutcherson.
And though the two actors play opposite corners of a love triangle (think Twilight's Bella/Edward/Jacob), apparently they have bonded while filming in North Carolina, says Hutcherson. Hutcherson brought Hemsworth along on a trip to Kentucky to visit with his family.
I think it’s going to blow people’s minds when they see that Peeta and Gale are actually best friends in real life.
Hope Lawrence didn't feel left out. So is it too early to start joining Team Peeta and Team Gale?
