Did Lionsgate miss the mark when it came to casting Peeta and Gale? According to fans online, the news was underwhelming, especially with the strong fan push for Hunter Parrish to play Peeta. Like Jennifer Lawrence and Katniss, the biggest concerns were over eye and hair color as well as height. On mockingjay.net the comments were flowing. Kisses=broth pondered, "josh certainly has the peeta good guy personality and vibe but i wonder how he will look blonde" while Throwing Knives at Haymitch wrote "I can see how some people would find Liam attractive...but not in that Gale sort of way." Yikes! Winner: Neither star has won over the masses ... yet.
