Alex Pettyfer gets a big tick of approval from many fans of The Hunger Games as the actor they’d most like to play the character of Peeta Mellark in the upcoming movie.
And it seems they may get their wish, with word that the 20-year-old has talked to The Hunger Games movie director Gary Ross.
He talked about the possibility that he could play the role of Peeta Mellark to J-14
“I met with Lionsgate. I think Gary Ross is a great director,” he said. “I have [read the books]. I’m a very big fan. I just hope they can conquer the movie.”
Casting for The Hunger Games movie is in early days and there’s yet to be any announcements. Filming should start later this spring for a release date set for March 23, 2012.
