Josh Hutcherson, who is playing Peeta Mellark in the Hunger Games and its sequels, spoke to Yahoo! Movies recently.
He opened up about his method of coping with the fame that playing the “boy with the bread” has brought him. He also mentioned that he was nervous about how being a part of this franchise was going to change his life.
Josh Hutcherson, also commonly known as J.Hutch, recalled an incident not too long ago where he found fans at his doorstep in Kentucky the day after Christmas. While he noted that there are some passionate fans of the trilogy, there are also some insane ones. He admitted that the recent hike in the number of “likes” on his Facebook fanpage was after the release of “The Hunger Games”.
Without revealing more than he should, Hutcherson also mentioned that the bonus content in the Hunger Games DVD and Blu-ray was a personal look into the filming process of the movie and that he was excited that “Catching Fire” is to start filming in a few weeks’ time.

About THE HUNGER GAMES
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 23.5 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.
Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.
