The Reaping: District 3 (Win a copy of THE GIRL WHO WAS ON FIRE)

3/22/2011
In honor of the April 5th release of The Girl Who Was on Fire, Smart Pop Books is celebrating by holding their own version of the Hunger Games’ reaping—"one with much less threat of death and way less perilous prizes."

For the 13 days (excluding weekends) leading up to the release, they've arranged to give away 2 copies of The Girl Who Was on Fire at 13 different “districts” around the web.

Welcome to District 3!

Starting today, I've been authorized to give away 2 copies The Girl Who Was on Fire. It's a collection of essays from "your favorite authors on Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games."

As a contributor to this book, and as a huge fan on HG, I just have to tell you how excited I am for The Girl Who Was on Fire. It's a fun read while still being intellectual--and if you're like me, reading it will make you see the HG books from so many new and different perspectives. It really is the perfect book for any HG fan!

All you have to do to enter is answer this question in the comments of this post:

Now that Jennifer Lawrence has been officially cast as Katniss Everdeen for the HG movie, what actor would you like to see in the role of Peeta? (Or Gale if you prefer to daydream about him instead.)

The giveaway for this district will be open until 10:00 pm MST on {EDIT: April 6th}. TWO winners will be selected by Random.org and posted here on {EDIT: April 7th}. Contest is open internationally.

Now go forth and comment...

And may the odds be ever in your favor!

{NOTE: THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED}

Ooh am I first! Fun.

I see Zach Roerig (The Vampire Diaries he plays Matt) as Peeta.

Vivi Valenz said...

I want to see William Moseley as Peeta. (He was Peter in the Narnia movies, which kind of makes it perfect. ;) ) I totally pictured him as Peeta when I was reading the books.

I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK. !!!!! :D

Jeremy Sumpter. End of story. No questions asked. That's who needs to be Peeta. NOT Hunter Parrish. Jeremy Sumpter. That is all.

C&C said...

Hunter Parrish IS Peeta. He just has to be, you hear me, casting gods?!

Jessica Secret said...

I've heard some things about Hunter Parish playing Peeta, and I think he looks GREAT for the role. Never seen his acting chops, but as far as looks goes I approve. (Which is exactly how I feel about Lawrence, actually.)

Jes said...

I, too, think Hunter Parrish would be great as Peeta.

Lori M. Lee said...

Oh my goodness, I'd love to win this book. My answer? I'm pretty cool with Hunter Parrish at this point. But I think I would squeal if it was William Moseley :D

Thomas Stanley, Jr. said...

Hunter Parish would make a great Peeta! He' more like what I pictured as Peeta than any other runner up :D

Sandy said...

I couldn't picture him as Peeta before but when I saw I Am Number Four I had no more problems if Alex Pettyfer was chosen to play the part, he's cute and is a good actor. Sure he doesn't fit the physical build that Peeta is described to have but honestly I can live with that ;).

Jamie McHenry said...

William Mosely! Say it ten times and I know you'll be convinced. He would be perfect.

Jessica said...

I'm very new to the Hunger Games Fandom (as in, just finished the first book SUNDAY), but I love it! W-o-w.

I also see Hunter Parrish as Peeta. When I read the scene of Katniss finding him completely camouflaged except the smile, it was all Hunter.

Me My Shelf And I said...

I am going with Jeremy Sumpter - for a few reasons:

Basically because I am so incredibly sick of Hunter P and Alex P being the only people ever mentioned like they are the only blond haired blue eyed actors in the world or because "they are up and coming".

And honestly I don't think either of them have the chops to pull off the complex character of Peeta. - Especially Alex. People get all caught up in how pretty these guys are, and how one can sing and BAM - they would make a great Peeta because of how he looks.

Sigh...so I picked someone no one really has and maybe he coulnd't pull the acting off either but at least I picked someone not based on how over publicized they are at the moment.

I'm the anonymous who is voting for Hunter Parrish @ taftshan@msn.com Thanks!

amberjade said...

I really would enjoy seeing Hunter Parrish as Peeta. He's almost exactly what I imagined Peeta to look like and I've seen so much fan art with him in it, he's already been cast in my head.

As for Gale, I would die to see Luke Pasqualino as Gale. He is tan, all brooding, and totally sexy. Just as Gale remains in my head. Yum! ;)

Brittney Belle said...

I've never though of it before, but now i totally love the idea of Zach Roerig as Peeta, he's perfect in that attractive and non-threatening type of way.

I also like Josh Hutcherson for Peeta. The only reservation I have about him is I'm not sure he can pull off blonde hair.

And does anyone else think that Hugh Laurie would make a great Haymitch?

Thanks for doing this contest! I'm super excited about the book!

Chersti Nieveen said...

I'm all for William Moseley as Peeta if he can do an American accent. But overall, I'm really hoping they go for someone who can act and pull off the part, because it might turn into being a hard role if they go with all three movies. I'm really excited about it, though.

Christie said...

I am so excited - my birthday is 3/23 so THG movie comes out on my bday next year! I would love to see Hunter Parrish as Peeta - but I barely care at this point, I'm so excited!

Laura said...

I am definitely leaning toward Alex Pettyfer for Peeta, but I will not complain if it goes to William.

Eti said...

It's hard to imagine any actor who could match up with the image I have of Peeta in my mind but if he was just a little younger, I think Nicholas Holt would be an amazing Peeta.

Hmm... This is hard. I guess, from the suggestions I've seen floating around the web in the past couple of months, I'd go with Hunter Parrish. But I could easily change my mind :P

I never really imagined anyone as Peeta, but I'd be fine with Hunter Parrish. He looks happy/nice enough.

M said...

I'd honestly love it if they cast an unknown as Peeta, but that's unlikely. Of the actors I know, nobody really stands out as perfect for Peeta. I definitely don't want Alex Pettyfer in the role, though- he might look the part, but I don't think his acting is that great, and it will look absolutely awful next to Lawrence's.

Juelz said...

I think Hunter Parrish would be great as Peeta! He got the charm & everything! :)

M. O'Reilly said...

I could see Ed Speleers from the Eragon movie do it. He has the physical skill to do the stunts and survive the arena and he also has the not confident in his own abilities even though he is awesome attitude. Plus he's already played a male lead who would do anything for those he loves.

I'm totally rooting for Hunter Parrish and Josh Hutcherson. They both look like a Peeta to me. :)
I know that Josh doesn't have blonde hair but hey: there is hair dye and wigs. :D I really hope that they'll announce it soon, though, because I don't think I'm the only one waiting impatiently ;)

Carina Olsen said...

So, yeah, I don't really have any favs for Peeta yet. I want someone pretty and unknown :) But if I have to say someone, then I guess Hunter Parrish is pretty good looking ;p

~ carina-olsen@hotmail.com

Sarah Steele said...

My vote is for William Moseley. You know, Peter from The Chronicles of Narnia movies. He is all sorts of yummy. And he is a fighter so... :-)

Robin said...

I like Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian) for Gale - and Josh Hutcherson from the Kids are All Right would make an interesting Peeta - if they get his coloring right.

Aydrea said...

Honestly I don't care who plays Peeta as long as he does a good job acting the part. And it wouldn't hurt for him to be nice to look at :)

Vivien said...

I really wished they would have gone wish unknowns. It's rather frustrating. But this is based solely on who they chose to play Katniss. And not to just jump on the band wagon lol. However, Hunter Parrish as Peeta would be good. I mainly think so because him and Jennifer would look cute together.

I second William Moseley. He has that "goodness" shine to him that Peeta does but he is talented enough to turn it around convincingly like Peeta did in the third book. Thanks for the giveaway.

Derek said...

Alex Pettyfer for the eyes...

Seiko said...

My first option is Alex Pettyfer. He's actually as I imagine Peeta. However, Hunter Parrish has such a sweet face... I can see him caring of Katniss in the dark ^^

celticmom81204 said...

Hunter Parrish for sure, he just has that kindness Peeta needs. celticmom81204(at)live(dot)com

pixie-hollow said...

Well I was okay with Alex Pettyfer, because for me he does look like Peeta, but he's practically in everything, lol. UHMMMMM i would really like to see William Mosley.

Erickold said...

Wow!
For me Lucas Till is the perfect Peeta.
Thanks so much for this giveaway!
I´m waiting for the oficial selection to Peeta and Gale. And all the other! :D

The Cribbs Family said...

Now that Jennifer Lawrence has been officially cast as Katniss Everdeen for the HG movie, what actor would you like to see in the role of Peeta? (Or Gale if you prefer to daydream about him instead.)

I don't "daydream" about either Peeta or Gale, but I have ideas on who could play them in the movie. I think Hunter Parrish has the look and mannerisms to pull off this role. I think Ben Barnes (he played Prince Caspian in the Narnia movies) would make a good Gale. I am looking forward to when the entire movie is cast. Tomorrow one year from when the movie comes out. Perhaps that would be a good day to reveal the entire cast? Wouldn't that be amazing?

Emelie said...

For Peeta I think William Moseley (Narnia-films) would be absolutely perfect, he's got that charmingly blond hair in a perfect Peeta-style, his face is Peeta-shaped and his whole self looks a bit Peeta-ish. Oh, many 'Peeta's in one sentence. Anyway, he's almost perfect as Peeta, I can't find anyone better than this William Moseley. <- CAST HIM!

Plus, he's a pretty good actor..

lexirylie said...

I see Steven R. McQueen (Jeremy in The Vampire Diaries) as Gale!!! He is the perfect actor for the part!

Jenni Elyse said...

Of course you had to ask the hardest question in the world! Since Alex Pettyfer is in the role for every YA novel turned movie right now, I'll choose someone different ... You know what? I lied because I can't think of anyone else. Alex Pettyfer.

Jaleesa said...

Hunter Parrish for Peeta!!!!!

Michelle said...

This is such a hard question!!! well.. for Peeta i would definitely want Hunter Parrish to play the role!! he's definitely perfect for it!

Michelle said...

^ my email is mishelly-31@hotmail.com srry forgot!!

Stokar said...

Keanu Reeves for Gale!

Cassie said...

Josh Hutcherson (sp?) would be good personality-wise, which I think counts for more than looks.

TEAM BOY WITH THE BREAD said...

Alex Pettyfer (Beastly; I Am Number Four). he's like my number one choice!!!!! so yeah!!!

if i had to chose someone else, though, i'd choose Hunter Parrish.

Sarena said...

I'm not too picky as to who plays Peeta--I can see Lucas Till, William Moseley, or Hunter Parrish. I'm fine with anyone, really, as long as he has the talent and he's not Alex Pettyfer.

Sarena said...

Oh, and my email is chacelilyvale(at)gmail(dot)com

animestrange said...

ALEX PETTYFER MUST BE PEETA! ALEX PETTYFER!!!!! Alex is sexy, nice, and is just a great actor. He will be amazing as Peeta.

Jackson Porter said...

Who would I like to see as Peeta? Hmm, well, as much as I hate the casting of Lawrence I would have liked to see Callan McAuliffe, but now since he's out of the picture....

Most likely Hunter Parrish, considering he's the closest you can really get to a true Peeta.

-Jackson

*Melissa* said...

hunter parish: he looks great for that part!

Kj said...

He's probably too old but I'd love to have Andrew garfield as Peeta. He's the perfect type of actor.

kelly g. said...

I have an image of Peeta in my mind, but can't really name a young-enough actor who fits it. So I guess I'll go with Hunter Parrish. (Cause I seriously want this book!)

Carly J said...

I think Hunter Parish would be a good Peeta!Otherwise, my second choice is Jeremy Sumpter...

I really love how STRONG most of your opinions are. I hope they announce the rest of the cast soon. I haven't been this excited about a movie in a really long time.

Nerwen said...

My vote goes to HUNTER PARRISH, he´ll be a great Peeta! *O*

I whish I could read The Girl Who Was On Fire -> it´s difficult to buy YA english novels in my country T_T

Renee Collins said...

No, no, no. PEOPLE. Hunter Parrish is too skinny/wiry for the role. Peeta is very specifically described as "stocky" in the book.

I lean much more to William Moseley.

(Though in truth, I'm fine either way. I just like acting all worked up about it. :) )

ksmeza said...

Jeremy Sumpter should be Peeta!! He doesn't look that old and he has a soft but very attractive face! He would definitely fit the part of a dreamy baker boy ;)

Shanella said...

Alex Pettyfer ... I know he's sorta older than Peeta should be, but still .... I like him =D

I know no one is going to agree with me ,but when I think about the movie I think Chord Overstreet from Glee. He can actually act and is good looking. As for Gale, Honestly no one I've heard or seen about makes me think "Oh he'd be great as Gale."

Anonymous said...

I think that Hunter Parrish may be one of the best actors to play Peeta. I always viewed Peeta as having softer planes on his face. But, he is who I immediatley thought of.

When i was reading the books, I kept picturing CHRIS ZYLKA as Peeta. I imagine Peeta with broad shoulders and a very defined jaw line and of course, good looking. I love Peeta.

I'd like Hunter Parrish or Alex Pettyfer for Peeta. If not, an unknown but amazing actor would do.

sauvadeavelle@yahoo.com

Katniss said...

Agh, that's a toughie. I was thinking of Callan McAuliffe with Hailee Steinfeld, because he just looks the part, but he would be too young for Lawrence. I'm not convinced that Hunter Parrish is my Peeta, but he is at least better than Alex Pettyfer to me. I'm hoping it is somebody that I haven't heard mentioned, like with Lawrence, because all the names thus far haven't convinced me. Collins knows best, though. I put all my trust in her. As for Gale, I still haven't found my perfect one either. And as a Gale fan, it is more of a big deal to me who they cast than Peeta. Oh well, I guess all we can do is wait forever in horrendous anticipation! Oh, and I'm super psyched to read this awesome book!

Lauren said...

I'd like to see William Moseley play Peeta, that or an unknown, I think they should mostly cast unknowns/not well knowns to play characters in book movies.

Jean said...

I'm really voting for Hunter Parrish, I think he has the look of sweetness, someone you can approach that Peeta has. But he also has this hidden sex appeal that I imagine Peeta has.

Steph said...

While Alex Pettyfer would be really, really nice to look at, I don't think he could pull it off. Right now I'm pulling for William Moseley for Peeta. I don't really have a preference for Gale - as long as he's nice to look at and, more importantly, can act, I think anything goes. (I'm Team Peeta, so I haven't thought about Gale as much haha.)

jasouders said...

SO THRILLED for this book. I think that Max Irons would make the PERFECT Peeta. He seems quiet and unassuming like, but is really hot when you get down to it. Just like Peeta. :)

Danielle said...

I feel like I'm just jumping on the band wagon here....but Hunter Parrish! I think he's a good Peeta. My second choice is William Moseley, but I'd also LOVE to see him as Jace. I'm sure they'll pick a good guy. Thanks for the giveaway.

I absolutely <3 the Hunger Games. I'm not sure if this is open to people in Canada as well but I've just got to say that I think Max Irons as Gale.
And for Peeta definitely William Moseley. He's hot and sweet come on! Lol

Paula said...

I'm thinking Chord Overstreet would be a great Peeta.

Carrie said...

Parrish=Peeta

Hunter just exudes Peeta through and through. Lets hope Lionsgate listens to the fans!

jessygt said...

It's probably not the most original opinion, but for me, the PERFECT Peeta is definitely Hunter Parrish. Even though he may be a little old for the part? I'm not sure.
But he was the first person that came into mind when I first read about Peeta in THG, just fits perfectly. And no one can shake that idea from my mind, hahah :D

Desa said...

OMG I forgot to answer!!
Peeta is definitely Hunter Parrish.
There's no other actor I'd like to see as Peeta *-*

Variety said...

I really need to win this. But so not knowing actors, I looked up everyone that others have mentioned so far. Well, most of them are nothing like I picture Peeta. I think the closest I see is Josh Hutcherson.

tawnyamayo @ yahoo.com

Lynossa (Deranged Book Lovers) said...

My vote goes to Josh Hutcherson, I love him since I saw him in Bridge to Terabithia and I think he can be a great Peeta. But Hunter Parrish is okay too, no Alex P please...

Lynossa(at)yahoo(dot)com

Laurel said...

Okay...on the typical side (for me), but I imagined Alex Pettyfer as Peeta! He'll probably end up doing City of Bones, though.

Chrissy said...

I would love to see Josh Hutcherson get the part!

Vicky said...

I feel like I'm the only person on earth who's not looking forward to this movie. I mean, I will probably watch if it ever comes to the movies, but I am not overly thrilled by it. It's just I don't think a movie could ever compare itself to the book & it would only be a disappointed.
I wasn't happy with Jennifer as Katniss, but she's a great actress and I hope she pulls it off. But like I said, I just wish they wouldn't do a movie at all.

Anyway, I would love to see Hunter Parrish as Peeta because he looks sweet.

Love the comment that Hugh Laurie would make a great Haymitch. Genius!

Vivian N said...

Well, it's really hard for me to think of an actor who could perfectly play Gale or Peeta becauseI know no actor could fulfill out the role of what I imagine they look like. That being said maybe Steven R. McQueen could play Gale and I don't know...Jeremy Sumpter as Peeta? I honestly don't know anyone who could really resemble Peeta, but I really wanted to throw a name out there that other people have not yet.

Max Irons as Peeta (Henry from the movie Red Riding Hood) And I know this book will be as good as Scott Westerfeld's essay collection on the Uglies.

I loved Hunter Parrish for a while, and then I heard about Josh Hutcherson...and to be honest, if you dyed his hair blonde he would have the exact build of how I imagined Peeta! Peeta's a stocky guy, not big, but he's more short with muscle, and Josh could totally do that, although with Jennifer being cast he might be too young now. I also loved Alex Pettyfer for Peeta...mostly because I find him totally dreamy and gorgeous and I just like to stare at him, but I'm ok if he's not Peeta too. I'm pretty much open for anyone who will do Peeta justice, I LOVE Peeta, and I want the actor playing him to be able to play him the way he's written. There are just so many parts of the series where he honestly carries the scene, and with Jennifer Lawrence being cast (I haven't watched Winter's Bone, but I hear that she was amazing in it), Peeta has to be amazing too. :)

Thanks for the chance to win The Girl Who Was On Fire :D

Anybody but Alex Pettyfer, he's too pretty and has a huge ego.

Katie said...

Also, I was wondering, what did you contribute to the book? Is it an article like on the philosophy of the hunger games or just issues in the book you found interesting? Or is it one of those things you can't talk about? It sounds interesting, I can't wait to see what authors were chosen. I wonder what the selection process was like...

Oh, and I remember the name of the guy that would make a great Peeta, Hunter Parrish!

Irvin K said...

There is only one person who can play Gale, and that is Ben Barnes! The look, the attitude, I think he's perfect.

As for Peeta, perhaps Sterling Knight? Lookswise he fits, and although he's known for playing douchey characters, I believe in his acting enough.

Tt said...

I would be fine with either Hunter Parrish or Josh Hutcherson. But NO Alex Pettyfer. He cannot act! I also dislike his looks.

Chord Overstreet (Sam Evans on Glee) could be a beautiful and sensitive-looking Peeta.

Thanks for a great contest!

Hunter Parrish? Really? I don't think so.

For Peeta I'm going to vote for Liam Hemsworth or Kellan Lutz.

For Gale... Okay, think outside the box with me... Zac Efron.

Alex Pettyfer. I know he is in every movie right now, but he really fits the character for me. can you not see him passing Katniss some bread.

I'd like (a blonde) Josh Hutcherson for Peeta

Annie said...

Ben Barnes isn't exactly who I imagine for Gale but he's close enough.

Krystin said...

I think Hunter Parrish would be great for Peeta!

I had to think long and hard about this because Jennifer is a talented actress with a strong personality that whoever played Peeta needed to match her intensity.
Also he needed to be close to her age and still play as a younger character - the only guy I could come up with is Max Irons.
For Gale - Ben Barnes would be perfect.

Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

Liam Hemsworth for Peeta.

But many other choices I saw here seem alright. It's got to be in the end the person who can play him best which is really going to be decided at audition :)

Thank you!

Annie said...

William Moseley is Peeta!!! There's nobody in the world can play the prefect Peeta than this guy. I love to see him be casted as my favorite character, that would totally make my life!

WILLIAM MOSELEY!!

silent_twilight said...

I'd love to see Hunter Parrish for Peeta and Tyler Blackburn for Gale.

Oh god. Both of them and Jennifer Lawrence would be too much hotness to handle...almost.

Lily said...

I'd like Ben Barnes as Gale.

Megan Peet said...

Who to play peeta? Now that's a hard one that I've been pondering for a while. At first I thought Alex Pettyfer, but now, I don't think so. Actually, I'd much rather it be an unknown actor. I mean REALLY unknown. They said they might with katniss, so why not with peeta?

Jemana18 said...

I really can't make my mind up for who should play the role of Peeta. But I think that Logan Lerman would make a great Gale. Does anyone agree?

melinda_duffy said...

While I was reading, I completely pictured Max Irons as Peeta-he's perfect!

Lasha said...

I think William Moseley will be great as peeta, he is simply amazing! Im so excited for the movie to come out, it will be so cool!

bookluvrmindy said...

I prefer Peeta but he is hard for me to think of who I want to cast for him, I guess Hunter Parish. I would like Matt Lanter to play Gale but they don't have him in line at all.

A said...

Whatever happens to the casting announcement tomorrow, my Peeta will forever be William Moseley.

Lionsgate is just too blind for not even considering William for the role. As a fan, it disappointed me to know their choices. Huhu.

hm... i think william moseley is a perfect Peeta <3

Heather said...

Peeta and Gale have now both been cast, and I personally really like their choices. Before I started obsessively following the casting decisions/rumors, I had Lucas Till as Peeta and Raviv(Ricky) Ullman as Gale.
I am SOOO glad that Alex Pettyfer wasn't cast as Peeta. I heard that he may be cast as Finnick for the next movie, and I think he fits that a lot better.
And just because you are still reading...
I pick David Clayton Rogers as Cinna, Alec Baldwin or Jack Nicholson as Haymitch, Michael Urie as Flavius, and John Malkovich as President Snow. Chloe Moretz for Prim, Madison Pettis for Rue.
I haven't really thought about it.

On an unrelated note, I loved The Dark Divine and I'm getting ready to start The Lost Saint.

Allie_ said...

I really like HUNTER PARRISH as Peeta. He looks more or less like how I imagined Peeta to be :) Although I've seen people mentionned Lucas Till on other posts and I think he could also fit the part but he would be my second choice. An unknown actor would be fine I think as long as he can act : I love Peeta's character. I love him he's my favorite !!!
