First Look: The Sexy Men of 'Hunger Games'

Entertainment Weekly

We've already seen Jennifer Lawrence in action as Katniss Everdeen in 2012's hotly anticipated 'Hunger Games' movie, and now has your first look at Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as Peeta and Gale (respectively), the two men vying for our heroine's heart!

Rocking some blonde locks to play the baker who wins over the nation, Hutcherson breathes life into the loyal lad Suzanne Collins created in her trilogy. As Peeta, the already brunette Hemsworth simply slapped on some Seam soot for his role as the hometown hottie who grew up by Katniss' side.

And while the boys battle in the books (and films), they tell Entertainment Weekly that the rivalry stopped when "cut!" was called. "I think it’s going to blow people’s minds when they see that Peeta and Gale are actually best friends in real life,” says Hutcherson, who even brought his new Aussie buddy home to meet the parents.
