Gale has a special non-romantic bond with Katniss, supporting her through the trials of the arena. Both envision being reunited in safety after the games are over.
The two roles are major benchmarks in both Josh's and Liam's career. After wowing critics with his performance in 'The Kids Are Alright,' Josh is poised to launch his career even further with his portrayal of Peeta. Liam got a lot of attention for 'The Last Song,' but when 'The Hunger Games' is set to reach 'Twilight' proportions, the series will likely take the Australian actor's star power to new heights.
