Vanity Fair har släppt ett nytt foto på några av "The Hunger Games"-tributes (spelungdomarna på svenska) samt Gale/Liam, vilket självklart inkluderar Josh! De pratar även om hur de blev castade i filmen.

The young cast of "The Hunger Games"

While the odds may not be in favor of these actors in the arena, they certainly were in the casting room. In what was one of the most-watched casting calls for young actors since "Twilight", auditions for "The Hunger Games" were a battle royale in their own right. Anxious to make the cut, hopefuls went all out: they covered their faces with dirt, put twigs in their hair, and wielded various weapons (including a Nerf crossbow and plastic butcher knife). It was all for the chance to play the "tributes" who fight each other to the death in contests broadcast throughout Panem (the futuristic ruins of North America) in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins's wildly popular young-adult novels. Ultimately, director Gary Ross took a liking to a fresh-faced cast that includes stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, and a host of new breakout actors. Scroll your mouse over their faces to get the basics on the soon-to-be household names, and read about how they got their highly coveted roles.

On landing the part: "I got to meet ['Hunger Games' author] Suzanne Collins at the first meeting, which was very exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. But I had a great read-through, and then came back to do a test screening a few weeks later. I also hit it off with Jen - the chemistry between the two of us really worked. A couple of weeks went by where I couldnt say a single word about it... then I got the call. It still didn't even hit me, until I walked on set for the first day."
