Apparently the wait is almost over. The people at The Hob have heard that we should know which actor will land the role of Peeta for The Hunger Games movie, on Tuesday.
Lionsgate has kept it pretty quiet, although rumors, seemingly leaked from the sudio, have indicated that five actors were in the running to play Peeta while at least four had been screentested for Gale.
Of those it seems that Josh Hutcherson is the frontrunner to land the role of Peeta, while Liam Hemsworth is likely to be picked to play Gale.
Both actors have been named in the rumored shortlist of contenders for the roles…along with Lucas Till, Hunter Parrish, Alexander Ludwig and Evan Peters for Peeta and David Henrie, Robbie Amell and Drew Roy for Gale.
