Jennifer Lawrence (20) as Katniss Everdeen
Josh Hutcherson (18) as Peeta Mellark
Liam Hemsworth (21) as Gale
To be honest, based on purely physical features, these actors aren't exactly how I'd envisioned the characters as I was reading the series. In terms of merit / skill... I guess only time will tell.
It's a little ironic that Peeta is supposed to be blonde, but the actor is a brunette, while Gale is supposed to be darker haired, but has a relatively blonde guy portraying him. But altering physical appearances is no big deal for Hollywood these days.
How do you guys feel about the recent castings? Who were you hoping for?
