Josh takes a part in first day of the movie, Benicio Del Toro’s “El Yuma” (“El Yuma”, Cuban slang for “The American”).
Plot: Teddy Atkins is a young American tourist who travels to Havana for the first time. His driver, a middle-aged Cuban cab driver who has a university degree in engineering will offer him a touristic tour of the city that is anything but traditional.

I’m so sorry for that I haven’t update the site for a month, but I’m busy right now, you know, studying on university is very hard to me and I study on and on. But, as you see, I found a sec to writing some news. Let’s start!
On November 15, Vanity Fair has posted on its site short interview with Josh. Josh talks audition proccess for The Hunger Games, Peeta and Jennifer Lawrence.
Krista Smith: Tell me about getting this role.
Josh Hutcherson: It was a very rigorous auditioning process. I’ve been a fan of the series for a little while now, and I went in and I met with Gary and Suzanne [Collins, the author of the Hunger Games books] and a couple of the producers initially, and I did a little audition. It was great, and I really hit it off with them and felt really good about it. And then a couple weeks went by, which were brutal. And then they brought me in to do a screen test, basically, with Jennifer, where I read with her. . . . And then I had to wait another couple of weeks or so before I found out that I got the part. And that was brutal, after doing a screen test. I think it was actually about a week and a half, [and] waiting to hear anything was just, like, ugh. Because I wanted it so badly, and all that time just lying there, waiting to see what happens, was pretty rough.
Krista Smith: Have you read the books?
Josh Hutcherson: I don’t read a whole lot of books, because I’m usually busy reading scripts, but these books were so good that I literally read all three of them over the course of five days or something. I really powered through them. And while I was reading the books, my mind was being blown as to how much I felt like I was like Peeta, and how I felt like I could relate. I’ve never really felt more right for a character in my whole life. That, in a way, is kind of even more scary, because if you don’t get hired, it’s like, Oh my God, what am I? What am I doing? What’s wrong?
Krista Smith: And how is it working with Jennifer?
Josh Hutcherson: [She] and I totally hit it off. We’re both very crazy people—we don’t really hold anything back. Which is really great. We were able to have a really good time, and not let anything get in the way of it looking stupid or anything like that. We probably look stupid like 99 percent of the time, but we have a good time doing it—so it’s worth it.

Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson put a fresh spin on traditional red-carpet looks at the Independent Spirit Awards, adding a leather jacket to an untucked chambray shirt and striped tie.
Josh also talks Peeta with Seventeen magazine. Read the short article below.
On Love at First Sight:
“I don’t think I’ve had love at first sight. But, I’ve definitely had moments where I’ve see a person, and I’m like, ‘Wow, there is something different about you, and I really want to get to know you.’ I haven’t really gained up the courage to talk to those girls. I still get a little nervous when talking to girls. Which is awful, and embarrassing, because I feel like I shouldn’t.”
On Peeta’s Love for Katniss:
“That kind of love, I haven’t experienced, except with my family, thus far. But, I definitely look forward to the day at one point, where I get to meet a girl where I have the same love for her that I have for my family. Because, that love I have for my family is undying, unconditional. You know my little brother can get pretty hot headed sometimes, and you kind of want to punch him. But, you love them so much you’d do anything for them.”
What do you think about love and relationship of Peeta and Katniss in The Hunger Games? Do you think the same like Josh? Let me know in comments! ;-)
