New Photo From ‘The Hunger Games’: Is Liam Hemsworth Too Hot to Play Gale?

With new photos of Katniss and Peeta (played by Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson) of the upcoming Hunger Games movie surfacing earlier this week, it was only a matter of time until we saw a photo of of Katniss’ childhood friend Gale – and the time has finally come!

MTV’s Hollywood Crush has the first look of Gale (played by Liam Hemsworth) waiting at The Reaping to find out who from his district will be sent to that year’s Hunger Games.

And WHOA! is all we have to say.

Liam (brother of Thor actor Chris Hemsworth and better known as Miley Cyrus‘ boyfriend) is looking smokin’ hot in this still – which poses the question: Can it be that Liam is too hot to play Gale?

The Hunger Games hits theaters March 23, 2012.
