Has The Hunger Games found its Peeta Mellark?
Sources tell E! News that Weeds star Hunter Parrish is in serious negotiations to take on the male lead in this anticipated movie franchise. He confirmed to the site last night that he has “met the producers” and would be “grateful” for the opportunity.
Parrish hasn’t seen a script for the film based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling novel trilogy yet, but it’s one of the most sought after roles in Hollywood. (Alex Pettyfer is also under consideration to play Peeta.) Jennifer Lawrence is the leading contender to portray Katniss Everdeen.
