'Hunger Games' Casting: Who Will Play Peeta? Hunter Parrish & Lucas Till Top Our List!

Posted Mon, March 28, 2011 10:15pm EDT

Which of these six guys is man enough to woo Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss? Tell us who YOU want to play Peeta!

Pretty blonde gentlemen are a dime a dozen in Hollywood, which only makes the battle for the lead male role in the upcoming adaptation of The Hunger Games all the more cutthroat. Some of the names rumored to be considered for the role include Weeds star Hunter Parrish, Hannah Montana: The Movie star Lucas Till, and The Kids Are All Right star Josh Hutcherson. But only one can play Peeta Mellark, the blonde-haired baker.

Here at HollywoodLife.com, we’re a little torn. Entertainment Editor Andy Swift is pulling for Weeds star Hunter Parrish (“Can we just call it The Hunter Games?”), while Associate Editor Chris Spargo is rooting for Lucas Till (“He look like him.”)

does nobody remember how Suzanne describes Peeta in the books? hes not supposed to be a drop dead gorgeous guy that every teenage girl falls for, which eliminates half of these guys. he is described as “stalky” (big boned and short) which is EXACTLY what josh hutcherson is. this was a brillant choice of casting!

it’s like no one here has even heard of hair dye or contact lenses. The AUTHOR of the books, Suzanne Collins said that Josh H was PERFECT for Peeta after seeing him audition and frankly I think that says more than what we can possibly know after seeing an old picture of him. I think he will do an excellent job – he is an actor after all

NOOO HUTCHERSON PLEASE NO NO NO he looks NOTHING like Peeta. They should’ve gotten unknown actors to play them, and im very disappointed with Katniss’ casting. Seriously J. Lawrence? Shes waayyy too old. By the last film shell be like 26 years old, but you never know with the magic of hollywood’s make up artists :). If i had to choose between these lovely gentlemen it would be Lucas Till. He’s got the looks, can act pretty good, and i just favour him. But im not sure about the sensitive parts. He might come out as robotic and unnatural but he’s gotten better at actng He.can be gentle Although i would’ve liked to see Pettyfer as Peeta (but less model-like as he looks in real life) its just all very hard better if unknowns played them. (still rootin 4 lucas) as 4 gale the boy who plays Liam in 90210 wouldve been a great choice, tall, handsome, has those big brown eyes you can melt into…he shouldve been Gale I guess we’ll see soon but i think hollywood will mess this up like they did w the Twilight saga *sigh*

I still think Alex Pettyfer would be a great Peeta…
He looks just like what I imagined Peeta would be.

Alexander Ludwig all the way. He’s a great actor but he doesn’t seem to get as much buzz to play Peeta unlike the other actors. Hunter is okay…but I still think a teen should play Peeta.
