    Josh deserved it because he was really serious for this role and committed plus i can imagine him as peeta :) the nice guy and stuff he has it in him..while liam..okay so i have no right to say rude stuff about people or pass judgment but still I would’ve imagined someone else as gale someone like adam gregory..anyway!!! lets see he might turn to be good? i mean the people chose him for a reason right? I just want to see the movie :D!! Hunger games is my favorite <3 <3
