Liam Hemsworth, our Gale, is featured on the cover of the upcoming inssue of Details Magazine! You can see several photos from the shoot below, as well as a blurb from the interview where Liam talks about getting cast in The Hunger Games, and a great interview from the shoot. [Note: Edited for language.]
But if the Hype Machine is to be believed, Liam is about to be side-of-a-lunchbox famous thanks to The Hunger Games. The megabudget adaptation of the Suzanne Collins series tells the story of a dystopian society where children fight to the death in a reality show. Some 16 million copies of the books have been sold in the U.S., and with the sun setting on Twilight and Voldemort vanquished, there’s a gaping void in the Cineplex for the prepubescent set. The search for the trilogy’s three stars was covered with the kind of breathless anticipation not seen since the hunt for Scarlett O’Hara.
Liam got the call from Gary Ross, the director of The Hunger Games, about a year ago. “I was half asleep,” he says, using a seven-iron to stretch his back as we amble toward the first tee, “listening to the voice mail. He was like, ‘You did a great read. Do you want to come and do the movie?’ I was like, ‘Oh s***. S*** s*** s***.’”
