In 2023, we are in desperate need of a Josh Hutcherson renaissance.
The former child actor starred in so many of our favorite childhood classics, including Bridge to Terabithia, Little Manhattan, Journey to the Center of the Earth and, of course, the Hunger Games films.
With The Hunger Games currently on streaming and a new installment on the horizon — The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is a prequel starring Tom Blyth, Rachel Zegler, Hunter Schafer and more — it seems like the hit dystopian franchise is currently at the top of the pop culture nostalgia cycle.
Plus, Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth, two of the stars of the original four movies, are back in the spotlight, with the former starring in the new comedy No Hard Feelings and the latter joining The Witcher.
So, where’s Hutcherson? And what’s he been up to?

“I saw Jen during quarantine — got to have dinner together. It was like mid-summer maybe [and] we had a nice socially-distanced dinner together. [It] was good to catch up with her because she’s been off living her life in other places all over the world,” he shared.
But Lawrence isn’t the only Hunger Games co-star Hutcherson has stayed in touch with.
He also revealed he catches up with Liam Hemsworth “every time we can” and still keeps in touch with Woody Harrelson, who played his and Lawrence’s characters’ mentor Haymitch in the teen dystopian franchise.
In September 2022, Lawrence gave a shout-out to both Hutcherson and Hemsworth in her “73 Questions” interview with Vogue. “The most fun I’ve ever had with actors on set is Josh and Liam, Hunger Games. Hi, boys,” she said with a smile.
