Male on Monday:Josh Hutcherson
Note: I was proved right and cried at the end.
Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta in the Hunger Games series -- a boy who wears his heart on his sleeve and who has to grow up very fast. The ultimate nice guy hero. He is a bit short (5' 5 3/4") but can act. And he really brought the role to life.
Although born in Kentucky in 1992, he and his family moved to LA when he was four so he could pursue all acting opportunities. Among other thigns, he played the hero in Polar Express. His break through role came in Bridge to Terabithia. But it was really the Hunger Games which capulted him to international stardom.
He has several dogs and cats, and a younger brother. As you might expect from someone who is 21, he has a lot of interests -- rock climbing, songwriting, competing in trialthons and basketball.
After Catching Fire, there are two more Hunger Games movies before the questions of Team Peeta v Team Gale is answered but you can always find out the answer by reading the books. (Do have a box of tissues handy). The official website can be found at http://www.thehungergames.co.uk/
