He's Gale all the way
We sat down with Liam Hemsworth (and tried to control our swooning) this week to talk all things The Hunger Games, and were curious as to how Liam reckons he would have done with the role of Peeta instead of Gale.
"I think everyone was a bit weird about me and Josh," he said.
"The way its written we pretty much both swapped hair colour and physical attributes for our roles."
"But when i read the books I always related to Gale more, and when i read the script it was always for Gale."
Er, are you quite angry then Liam Hemsworth?
"[laughs] Am I an angry man? I think Gale is extremely passionate about not being a part of these Games and trying to find a way around it, and I think I’d be trying to do the same thing."
But what about if the roles were reversed, and Gale's name was pulled out at the Reaping, forcing him to go off to the arena, leaving Peeta at home in District 12?
"I think the arena is completely unpredictable and you can never really tell whats gonna happen," Liam told us.
"But Gale’s a pretty well rounded guy. He’s pretty knowledgable in the wilderness and i think he’d probably do ok."
