Who is Josh Hutcherson?
Josh Hutcherson is an American actor and producer. He is best known for his role as Peeta Mellark in the mega popular Hunger Games series,
In most Hollywood blockbusters, the lead male actor is 6′ 2″ and built like a fitness model. He towers over his female counterpart (and every other character too).
It's not at all realistic. Most men aren't built like Greek gods. In America alone, there are tens of millions of men under 5′ 9″.
But shorter men are rarely picked to play the hero–which is why it's awesome that Josh Hutcherson was chosen for the role of Peeta in The Hunger Games.
Even better, his co-star Jennifer Lawrence is about two inches taller than him.
Of course, there's more to Hutcherson than his height. He's happens to be an excellent actor, and men and women alike recognize his charming personality, talent, and good looks.

Homeschool turned out to be the best fit for his personality as well as his career. He's said of his educational experience,
