The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson went for a little ride on his motorcycle in Los Angeles, California earlier today (July 25, 2012) after he refueled at a local gas station.

Access Hollywood caught up with Josh at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (July 22, 2012) and spoke with him about the recent additions to the cast of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

He only had positive things to say! “I’m super excited. I think that Jena Malone is fantastic,” he said of the actress playing Johanna Mason – which Lionsgate officially confirmed on Monday.

Josh’s highest praise was for the actor whose onscreen job is trying his hardest to kill Peeta and Katniss. 

“Oh my God, Philip Seymour Hoffman. He’s like one of my favorite actors ever,” he said of the star, who has been cast as Plutarch Heavensbee, the Head Gamemaker. “Everything he does, he’s just the most epic guy!” Josh continued. “So, I’m like, ‘You’re doing our movie?’ I was blown away when I heard about him.”

Are you as excited for these cast additions as Josh is?
