Hunter Parish is in talks to land the lead role in upcoming futuristic film, The Hunger Games. The cutie confirmed with E! that he may take on  the role of Peeta Mellark.

I’ve met the producers. I’d be grateful to get the opportunity. Like, really grateful. It would be amazing.

Parish has some competition for the role, seeing as Beastly’s Alex Pettyfer is also in talks to take on the lead role. The only big question mark is who will play the female role of Katniss Everdeen. Jennifer Lawrence is a serious candidate, but other actresses that are still in the running include Hailee Steinfeld, Saoirse Ronan and Abigail Breslin.
