** At first, the film's creators considered casting an actual teen in the lead role (among others, SaoirseRonan, Creator/ChloeMoretz, and HaileeSteinfeld were considered for Katniss' part). They finally settled with 21-year old JenniferLawrence to play 16-year old Katniss. Liam Hemsworth (Gale, 18) was 21 during filming, while Josh Hutcherson (Peeta, 16) was 19. Leven Rambin (Glimmer, 18) was 21 at the time.

** Peeta is described as having blonde, curly hair, blue eyes and being taller than Katniss. Josh Hutcherson dyes his hair blond but keeps it straight instead of curly. There was also fan outrage over him not being "good looking enough" for Katniss to pick him over Gale. Suzanne Collins said that Hutcherson was perfect for the part.

By the time the third and fourth movies came out most fans of the books agreed that he captured Peeta's character very well.

** Cato is back from [[RaceToWitchMountain outer space]]... and it turns out he's the son of [[Series/{{Vikings}} a Viking cheiftain.]] Talk about an unfair advantage!

** Haymitch used to be a [[Film/{{Zombieland}} Twinkie-seeking zombie hunter]].

And the arena was designed by [[Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman Truman]] Film/{{Capote}}.

** Unsurprisingly, (young) [[{{Series/TeenWolf}} Derek Hale]] still can't win a fight.
