Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, Hunger Games: Catching Fire


Catching Fire is now in theaters! And there are plenty of guys to feast your eyes on in the second installment of the Hunger Games trilogy. So let's take a look at them, shall we?

Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark: Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) is the brave and kindhearted District 12 tribute and winner, along with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) from the 74th annual Hunger Games. He is the son of a baker and has been in love with Katniss since he was a little boy. He is described as having blond hair and is a master of using camouflage as a disguise. In Catching Fire, our male protagonist volunteers himself back into the arena for the special third Quarter Quell, where past winners are the only tributes qualified to enter the game. His compassion for our heroine is shown when he admits he will do anything to save her. Team Peeta, anyone?

Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne: Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) is Katniss' hunting partner and longtime pal, but could he be more than a friend? Before Katniss, or as he calls her "Katnip," volunteers herself in place of her sister, Gale proposes that the two run away. They ultimately don't, and he is forced to watch her play out her romance with Peeta during the Hunger Games. In Catching Fire, Gale is working in the coal mine and his relationship with Katniss poses a threat to the Capitol. Is he still pining over Katniss and will they become anything more than platonic buddies? Anybody Team Gale?

Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair: Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) is the returning winner from District 4 and a Career tribute in the Quarter Quell. He is very handsome—and knows it—but he has the strength to back it up. While he butts head with Katniss at first, they eventually become allies during the games. Odair battles with a trident and is joined in the arena by District 4 winner, 80-year-old Mags (Lynn Cohen). Any Finnick fans?

Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy: Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) is a former Hunger Games winner, who serves as a mentor to Katniss and Peeta because he is the only surviving victor from District 12. He likes to drink a little too much, but always gives good advice with a touch of humor. In Catching Fire, Haymitch is chosen to re-enter the arena but Peeta bravely takes his place. Haymitch has a bigger part in the games and his important role becomes revealed.

Lenny Kravitz as Cinna: Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) is the stylist genius behind Katniss' unique fashions before the Hunger Games and following her victory. This Capitol native always offers Katniss encouragment and important pointers to survive.

But will he have his vengeance after deciding to put them back in the arena for the Quarter Quell? We will have to wait and see...
