In the latest interview with MTV, actor Josh Hutcherson (Bridge to Terabithia, Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Hunger Games) talks his career, his point of view on movie industry and his idols who he would like to emulate. Talented 18-year-old mentioned The Hunger Games and Jennifer Lawrence as well, and shared his impressions from movie audition. Here’s what he said:
MTV: So let’s talk briefly about “The Hunger Games” and that crazy audition process.
Hutcherson: For the audition process, I came in the first time and read a few scenes for [director] Gary Ross and [author] Suzanne Collins and some of the other producers involved. Then maybe about a week or so, maybe two weeks later, I came in and did a screen test with [co-star] Jennifer [Lawrence], where I actually read the scenes with her so they could see how the chemistry worked. Both of them felt really great, but as an actor, you just pick apart every single thing that you do, so for me, I was on pins and needles waiting to find out. And then when I finally found out, my jaw hit the floor. I was so excited.
