Josh Hutcherson: Peeta at the Bakery!
The 18-year-old actor, pictured standing outside a bakery, did some intense training for the upcoming film, putting on about 15 pounds of muscle in just three weeks!
Author Suzanne Collins sat in for Josh‘s audition and explained why he scored the coveted role.
“People may get thrown, say, by the color of an actor’s hair, or something physical,” she told the mag. “But I tell you, if Josh had been bright purple and had six foot wings and gave that audition, I’d have been like, ‘Cast him! We can work around the wings.’ He was that good.”
