When you’re set to appear in one of the most highly anticipated novel adaptations in years, and one that is about children having to straight-up murder each other, one would think an actor would dial up their lawyer and make sure there’s a stunt double in the contract. However, Hutcherson performed all of his own stunts for The Hunger Games.
Of course, he had experience after working with director, and stunt veteran, Dan Bradley on Red Dawn. Bradley encouraged everyone on set to do their own stunts. "When you have a bunch of young actors out there jumping from rooftop to rooftop, they're fired up as all hell," Morgan said. "It wasn't a bad thing. It's what actors love to do."
