Liam Hemsworth for Details Magazine

Posted on February 22, 2012

Darlings of appropriate ages, here’s a pretty boy for you to look at. We hear he’s in that “Hungry Gamers” thing the kids are all talking about.

It’s Details, so the fashion is as generic as it gets, but he’s certainly easy on the eyes – for those of you who fall respectably within his age range, that is. Have fun, teenage kittens! Feel free to use the basement to have your friends over and dance to records!

Records. They play music? Round, black, and viny– y’know what? Never mind.

      Yawn. They should’ve gotten a better stylist.

         Remember – it needs to be generic enough that the kids can afford it.

      • ccm800

         yawn indeed….zzzzzz

    • SpcilK

      Yawn!

      I like the action shots better than the stills.  He certainly has bulked up lately-and he looks more like his brother, too.  For a second, I thought they mis-labeled him.

    • GorgeousThings

      My god, he looks just like his brother. Genetics works.
      If I was 20 years younger…

      True story: walking down to the bus-stop the other day, we found a vinyl record half-shattered on the road. My kids (5 and 10) were fascinated. What is that?  Was that a toy?  Can we fix it?  What do you do with it?

      Well. It’s called a record.
      You put it on a turntable – a spinning disk.
      Then you lower a needle onto it. No, a small needle.
      The disk spins the record, the needle bounces over the grooves – or something - 
      - and music comes out.

      No, really.

      No-one had iPods back then. Why not? Because we had vinyl records back then, and you can’t fit a record into an iPod oh look here’s the bus bye kids!

        When shopping, it’s gotten to where I’m not quite sure what electronic device I’m looking at any more.  And I fondly remember dial telephones.  And phone booths.

        • Spicytomato1

          Dial telephones that were bolted onto the wall so that mobile meant going only as far as the curly cord would stretch!

        • kimmeister

          Superman misses telephone booths.

          • meowing

            uh0h.  Now you know my secret identity.

        • formerlyAnon

          Telephones that worked. For years. For decades. Are older than I am and are STILL working. Even some of the Princess phones that weren’t bolted to the wall so they did, sometimes, get dropped/dragged/abused.

          Over designed? Anyone remember when some things lasted until you were sick of them and wished they’d break so you could replace them?

          Yes. I am ancient, my children.

        • muzan-e

          We had That Talk about dial phones too, once. Just once. Because it all devolved into a slightly hysterical “Because buttons weren’t invented back then, okay?!” It’s difficult to explain it in a way they can understand, because …. you know that old saying about how at some point, it becomes impossible to distinguish technology from magic?

          Because of that – musical spinny disks! rotary phonecalls!

          But in reverse.

          (I sympathise; spent hours trying to figure out my new cellphone. Maybe it was actually an iPod and nobody told me.)

      He’s too young for me and too old for my teenage daughter, but I’m sure we’ll both enjoy watching him when she drags me to the Hunger Games on opening night.

      • P M

         Ya know, based on my reaction to the third book, this 30-yr old Kitten (cat?) is not going to bother. I’ll wait for the DVD.
        That and the fact that they got Peeta (who is FAR more interesting than Katniss, IMHO) wrong in the casting.

        • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

          Ugh, I HAAATED the third book. It was so lazy I felt like I’d been cheated out of my money. I really enjoyed the first, but not enough to have strong emotional attachments to my vision of it, so I’m pretty excited for this movie.

          • P M

             I know, right? I found myself getting more and more irritated by Katniss. Ms. Collins did such a poor job on her. Although, it’s possible the genre’s requirements maybe had something to do with it. Maybe her publisher was pressuring her to not explore further, even darker territory? Like how it feels to be a political pawn (Katniss); a potential ruthless general (Gale); a statesman / politician (Peeta). I got the feeling that book 3 should have been split into two, and further fleshed out.
            And I think Peeta’s story should have been told too: a boy who suddenly finds that he has so much power and influence, and learns to use that. Wow – what a psychological study that would have been!

            • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

              I doubt it. Once your book is about teenagers killing each other, there’s not much darker you can really get. I suspect it was more about the fact that it was the third book in a bestselling trilogy, and millions of people would buy it (and most would love it) no matter what, and the author had earned enough clout to disregard the editorial suggestions she disliked.

              After Mockingjay came out, I saw someone suggest that the first book should’ve been from Katniss’s point of view, the second from Peeta’s, and the third from Gale’s. This way, you get the most exciting and most interesting parts of each book from the narrator’s POV. This would’ve been FANTASTIC.

            • P M

               Individual POV. Now there’s an idea! I would have loved to see that

            • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

              Sarah Rees Brennan did this with her (fantastic) Demon’s Lexicon series: each book is from a different POV. It works surprisingly well, actually.

            • reebism

              I actually thought that Katniss was an absolutely brilliant portrayal of someone with deep, deep PTSD. Detached, unable to process, getting stuck on certain moments…unable to figure out who was friend or foe. That part felt very real to me. (I wasn’t a big fan of the action in the third book, but the action was never what compelled me.)

            • Libby Rhoman

              I like your interpretation.  I was super disappointed by the third book- I agree with above posters that it felt lazy. However, now I feel the need to read it again with your view in mind.

              I’m super pumped about the movie- all the casting looks great, though I’m highly skeptical of Lenny Kravitz.  Cinna’s my favorite character and I always imagined him to be a tiny, 20 year old twink.  

              Also- does anyone else think the guys cast as Gale and Peeta are too beefy?  Shouldn’t all the tributes and company be ultra skinny due to malnourishment, etc.?

              (Sorry- should I have sought out a fan board for all this?)

            • P M

              Gale hunted. There was a thriving black market going on.
              Peeta was a baker’s son. He lived in the (relatively) well-fed part of town.
              Cinna always struck me as worldly-wise and cynical. In the books, he’s described as having a sense of restraint, even simplicity, compared to the rest of the styling team. 

            • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

              This is absolutely true, and wouldn’t have been a problem for me, except that it meant that everything that happened in that book was conveyed to us through someone telling Katniss, which meant we got it at best third-hand. Having someone state everything that happens is the laziest and most boring way to move the plot along. I would’ve been fascinated had that been the last third of the novel, or had she continued to do things while suffering from PTSD, but that wasn’t what we got.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1043171034 Tadiana Walton Jones

            When I first commented above I thought about opening up a discussion on the trilogy generally, but refrained.  But since that door has now been opened: :D   [Spoilers abound!]

            My daughter (going on 14) absolutely hated the ending of third book – partly because she’s a Gale fan; partly because of the Prim story.  I also read the trilogy (partly because I want to read most of what my kids are reading, and partly because I’m a YA fiction and fantasy/scifi fan anyway).  Coming from a less emotionally attached point of view, I thought the ending worked from a literary standpoint.  But I didn’t care for the darker turn the story took.  Yes, it’s all about kids killing kids anyway, but (a) it doesn’t quite feel real until they start killing people you deeply care about; and (b) there was clearly a turn for a deeper evil in the third book – good (the 13th precinct, IIRC, as well as Gale’s character) was turned on its head and became dark, even evil.  From a literary point of view, again, it works and is clearly defensible, but I’m not sure that’s where I think YA scifi needs to go.  Maybe I’m just a wimp and want happier endings.   I read literature to escape and like to feel good or at least uplifted at the end of it.  The trilogy, in the end, was pretty depressing and dreary.

            • P M

               Really? I thought the ending was lighter than it could have been. Hmmm…..

              Now, if you want DARK dark, you’d be reading The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing. There were pointswhere I put the book away; I found it just too hard to read.

    • http://twitter.com/sanja_ramic sanja_ramic

      Yawn. Liam does absolutely nothing for me and the generic styling really isn’t helping to change my mind. His brother on the other hand…

      • Kimmu

        I’ll just go watch that Snow White and the Huntsman trailer for about the 100th time and sigh. Oh his brother.

      • Anne Lucchesi

        No kidding. How tough must it be to think ” I got cast in a big blockbuster, yay!” And then realize “…and my brother is playing a GOD”. It’s the Huntsman trailer for me too now.

    • http://twitter.com/rachelruthlee Rachel Lee

      HUNGER GAMES. I cannot wait. I’m not a kid, but I loved the book. Fresh concept and fast paced, excellent entertainment. 

      • muzan-e

        Amen. A little bit Aztec, a little bit French Resistance, and unflinchingly harsh just when it needed to be. I can’t wait. *g*

      • mjude

        my group called the books “crack” couldnt put them down.  as for Liam, adorable, hope he is ready for the storm that is coming in March.

        • Spicytomato1

          I was the only one in my group who didn’t love them. But I think they were tailor made for films. Only thing is for some reason I envisioned Peeta to be African-American or biracial so this casting didn’t feel right to me. He may not be my picture of Peeta but he sure is cute though.

          Edit: Sorry, I meant Gale not Peeta. Peeta was miscast, too, in my opinion…

          • julnyes

             Gale never came across as bi-racial or black to me, but we all have our own vision of a character as we read :)

            I am confused by people who were shocked to find out Rue was black – it was clear as day to me. I think, looks wise, she was perfectly cast.

            • Spicytomato1

              I know, no one in my book group could understand where I came up with that. I think the only descriptor we got of him was “olive skin.” Anyway, Rue’s race was clear to me, too. As for perfect casting, I think Lenny Kravitz as Cinna is pretty spot on, although he might be a tad too old.

            • julnyes

              Well with Gale they did repeatedly mention how much he and Katniss looked like they could be related, so that is how I built my mental image of him.

              Lenny Kravitz looks nothing like how I envisioned Cinna, but I am absolutely happy to suspend my disbelief for the movie. To be honest, they could have flipped all my racial and gender assumptions with the characters and I wouldn’t particularly been bothered since I don’t think gender and race were of particular importance in the storyline.

              of course I’m not always so laid back about those things (don’t get me started on the cast of The Last Airbender movie)

            • P M

               air… bender… air….bender (sorry, I thought I’d gotten away from the eye-twitching and the muttering ;D).
              The casting there was a TRAVESTY. Did they really think nobody would notice?

              Colour-blind casting would have been an inspired choice here; inspiration, however, is not a concept Hollywood is acquainted with, non?

            • P M

               gasp! Don’t you talk that way about Cinna! He’s perfect (and the only one in my mind who seemed….. coloured? (Please note: I use that as tongue-in-cheek, since, in teh books, Capitol-ites dye their skin (!!!!))

          • P M

             oh good, someone agrees with me on the Peeta (get it? Pita? hee hee :D) issue.

        • P M

           ‘crack’ sounds about right. I read each book in about a day. The last, two days, on account of not liking the book and having to trudge through it.

    • Kimmu

      I look at him, shake my head for the poor boy, and go “Man, Chris really got all the hotness in that family.” They look so much alike and yet Chris is about a million times hotter. I am not sure how that works.

      Such is the power of Thor.

      TLo, after reading weeks of griping about how “Glee” and “Walking Dead” just don’t measure up, I feel compelled to tell you:  if you want some compelling storytelling and fabulous characters, READ THE HUNGER GAMES.

      • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

        I had to convince one of my good friends that he should read this book that all his coworkers were reading even though it was a young adult book. I think I succeeded. (I know what he likes, and this? This is SO it.)

        • brokephilosopher

          It took me sooo  long to pick up the first book because you know, it’s a young adult book and I’m a mature, adult reader.  but oh my god! they’re so good!!

          On the pictures: the last two shots CRACK ME UP.  “Here’s me sitting.  Now here’s me sitting leaning to the side a little.”  I want a whole series of pictures in which he leans further and further and then falls over.

          • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

            Move the first three to the bottom. BAM!

            I actually work in YA, so that hasn’t been a deterrent to me…well, ever. And my friend was trying SO HARD to be diplomatic about saying it was a kiddie book that I couldn’t really be offended. But there’s a lot of seriously great stuff in YA, and it makes me sad that people dismiss it so easily. (This is also why I’m thrilled when people go, “Hey! That was great!”)

            • Spicytomato1

              My book group reads alot of YA, mostly because a few are teachers and like to keep current. It’s astonishing how much the category has exploded, I love it. So many more choices than when I was a “YA.”

      Hungry Gamers :D :D :D. Actually, I’m trying to find the Japanese book that Hunger Games was apparently a ripoff of. 

      • http://profiles.google.com/psykid42 Christopher Brathwaite

        You’re thinking of Battle Royale, of which there is a novel, a manga and a movie. Hunger games isn’t really a rip off of it, through they seem similar. Battle Royale is far more about the pressures put on teenagers in the japanese school system, and how those tensions simmer and build, while Hunger Games is more a dystopic commentary on our obsession with “reality” television and schadenfreude. It owes more to Stephen King’s The Running Man. Why yes, I read a lot of sci-fi

        • P M

           Thanks! I find myself mostly turned off by sci-fi, mostly by fanboys who obsess over fantasy. SO not interested in Neil Gaiman (one day, maybe….). Anyway, I’m an arbitrary reader, who is now interested in The Running Man. Which is your favorite King work? Mine’s still Carrie (the book). I didn’t find it frightening – well, unsettling, but mostly sad.

    • Allyson Wells

      TLO, Read The Hunger Games, pleeeeease!! I know many, many adults (myself included) who loved the books. Actually, I don’t know anyone who read them and didn’t love them!

        I have been telling everyone I know to read The Hunger Games for the last 2 years.  My husband FINALLY got into it and now has about 20 pages left of the first book – and he is loving it!

      • Spicytomato1

        I didn’t love them, for numerous reasons. But I know I’m in the minority. And I’m looking forward to the movies. In fact I feel like the books were basically screenplays.

      well, i mean, he’s old enough to drink legally, nevermind drive vote & die for his country; beyond that, he’s gotta be one of the oldest looking guys in his young twenties i’ve ever seen. so, i think, if you want, go right ahead. you dont even need his consent to think about him. then again, boy is that an inadvertently quasi-creepy sentence.

      I had no idea there was another Hemsworth.  Sounds like a nice cradle-robbing sammitch.

      Ugh, he’s always reeked of douche–dumb douche, for that matter–to me. I like his brother so much better (which is weird, as I generally do not go for blonds or bulky guys). I’m SO ANNOYED that he’s playing Gale; it’s the one casting decision I’m really unhappy with.

      I’d have preferred him in nothing but a speedo…but then, that’s just me….

      I remember records…I also remember the time my evil little brother took my sisters much loved copy of “Billy Don’t Be A Hero” and carefully took a needle and ran it backwards through the groove and ruined it without overt scratches.  Yes, he was born evil and got progressively more so as he got older.  The shriek and subsequent pummeling when it was discovered were a mild amusement on a boring summer afternoon…
