Hutcherson-Peters, The Hunger Games

Since it was announced on March 16th that Jennifer Lawrence landed the popular role of Katniss, producers have been casting calls for the other lead roles. Lionsgate was reportedly testing a number of thesps yesterday for the two male lead roles in The Hunger Games Peeta, a guy from Katniss’ town who shows his love for her as the film begin, and Gale, a character that teaches Katniss the “way of the hunter” while she’s in the life-or-death games played out in the post-apocalyptic future.

For your reminder, fiction story is set in a future America divided into 12 needy districts that serve an affluent Capital. Once a year, each area offers a girl and boy as part of a ritual for human sacrificing. 16 years old Katniss is the girl who volunteers to take the place of her sister; Katniss spends the rest of the story uncertain whether the move was a survival trick or a true act.

Heat Vision reported the list of actors testing for each part alongside the 20-year-old Jennifer Lawrence.
