Sure, the entirety of this week's "Hunger Games" casting scoop has been straight out of the secondary character camp, but the movie's strapping leading men (Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth) are never far from our minds. (Especially after watching "The Last Song" this weekend. Swoony McSwoonerson, Mr. Hemsworth!) ANYWAY, this entire rambling preamble is to tell you that we have a few Peeta/Gale goodies for you today!
You may remember that when Jennifer Lawrence was cast as Katniss last month, we imagined what the actress would look like in five of the District 12 tribute's signature looks. Well, we're giving Josh and Liam the same treatment.
We once again turned to fabulous artist Kate Wheeler from Rat Girl Studios to illustrate what the two would look like as a baker's son and a badass hunter. Check out the results below!
Now, I'll admit I was among the fans who were a bit...dubious...when these two were cast, but seeing Josh as a blond (and in an apron!) and Liam with longer, shaggier dark hair is helping me see the possibilities.
But what do you think about Josh and Liam in character? Are you sold? Click on the image above to see our entire illustrated "Hunger Games" gallery.
