Today Josh Hutcherson turns 19! You’re seeing a lot of him lately because he plays Peeta Mellark in the highly-anticipated film version of The Hunger Games (out next March). But Josh has been in Hollywood for a long time as the child actor starting to slide into more adult roles. Chances are you also saw (but didn’t recognize) him in Bridge to Terabithia, Cirque du Freak, and last summer’s hit The Kids Are All Right.
Trying to find something to commemorate his birthday, we stumbled across this very strange fan video on YouTube. It’s a tribute to Josh, in part through his movie roles as the snarky little kid, but it also features personal videos he makes with his friends and a strange montage of him licking his lips during interviews.
Our conclusion? He seems like a normal 19-year-old guy, and his fans are very attentive.
