Hunter Parrish: 'Hunger Games' Star?

Hunter Parrish is in talks with producers to play the role of Peeta Mellark in the upcoming Hunger Games film!

The 23-year-old Weeds actor told E! that he’s met with producers and that he’d be “grateful” to get to play Peeta on the big screen.

“Regardless of whether I’m a part of the film or not, I feel honored to just sort of be thought of,” Hunter said, adding, “I read the books all last year.”

As for potential co-stars, Hunter said he’d love to work with Jennifer Lawrence, who’s rumored to have nabbed the part of protagonist Katniss Everdeen.

People should watch Winters Bone on DVD to see why Jennifer is a good match for Katniss. She played a really tough and also vulnerable part, she did an amazing job.

He is the perfect Peeta!

I really hope Huner is chosen for this part! He’s a fabulous actor and I’m sure he’d give the role the spark it has. :)

OMG this is the best news all week =)

As long as it’s not Alex or Josh Im open about it. Hunter is cute but i want Jeremy Sumpter. I think jennifer is not good for the role, i prefer haille more. And why hasnt there been news for the role of Gale?

cute but a shorty

too old to play 16 years old Peeta, and also too short to match with Jennifer Lawrence.


I totally was imagining him as Peeta when I read the books!


Why 19 for average people???

I guess hunter is ok, i would like it to be alex pettyfer but still..
But jennifer is way too sexy to play katniss in my opinion. I mean, in the book she’s supposed to be pretty but not sexy, that’s what they all kept telling her!! If you read the books, you know what I’m talking about

Please, no. He’s weird looking and too old and thin to play Peeta. I can’t be the only one who thinks he’s a bad choice!

he’s not too old!!!
who do you want? justin bieber??????

he’s not too old!!!
who do you want? justin bieber??????

I would be very disappointed if he gets the role of Peeta. Alex Pettyfer is a much better match.
