Sick of 'Hunger Games' casting rumors yet? Well, you're out of luck because we're about to deliver some more, but at least it switches the attention from the film's lead character, Katniss Everdeen, to one of her main men. As reported by The Playlist, Alex Pettyfer confirmed that he's been asked to play the part of Peeta Mellark, the baker's boy-turned–District 12 tribute. Pettyfer told Access Hollywood he has spoken with the film's producers but that he's still undecided on whether or not he'll take the role.

I guess this is what happens when Debra Zane's your casting director. Yes, Zane is responsible for some noteworthy work including 'Dreamgirls,' 'Catch Me If You Can,' 'American Beauty' and more, but apparently she's been tainted by 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.' First of all, the only similarity between 'Twilight' and 'The Hunger Games' is that both involve teens, brutality and romance. 'The Hunger Games' is a wildly different story that, in my opinion, has considerably more depth and is far more entertaining. Anyway, the point is, casting 'The Hunger Games' can't just be about pretty and popular faces; it has to be about raw talent.
