20 Book-To-Movie Characters That Were Cast All Wrong
Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, The Hunger Games
Stick with us here because we know this one is controversial. We love Josh Hutcherson, and for the most part, we loved the Hunger Games film series. But when we read the books, we had a different Peeta Mellark in mind. The character, described as stocky with wavy blond hair and a penchant for self-deprecating humor, was not totally the Peeta we got. We definitely warmed up to him after four movies, and his casting didn’t mar the total success of the film, but we certainly had other images in our head for the baking boy turned 74th Hunger Games victor. All in all, this was an issue of not accurately following the description, and we guess we’ll let it slide.
