Today I spoke with Josh Hutcherson, who stars as Peeta in the just-a-bit-anticipated big screen version of "The Hunger Games." The full interview will post the week of the film's March 23 opening, but here's a taste.
“We wanted to give him a little bit more balls,” Hutcherson said of his character. “The cave scene where Peeta’s admitting his love to Katniss, in the book it can come across a little sappy. We wanted it to come across as, ‘I’m gonna die. I need to tell you how I feel.’”
