Today’s Hunger Games casting announcement has set Twitter ablaze with mixed opinions and heavy doubts. Many Hunter Parrish-lovin’ HG fans are scratching their heads and cursing the producers’ decision to cast the talented but arguably too short Josh Hutcherson in the role of Peeta. And Liam Hemsworth has rarely been present on the countless dream cast shortlists.
Our initial disappointment left us with no choice but to take to Photoshop and get these underdogs Seam’d up and alongside our Katniss. The conclusion? Not too shabby. We’ll admit these guys aren’t who we pictured while reading the series, but after a little hair dye, contacts and tanning, we’re starting to see it. Plus, we all know there are techniques for embellishing an actor’s height onscreen. Hello, Tom Cruise!
What do you think, HG fans? Do Hutch and Hems fit the bill?
