While I was winging my way from LA to Detroit, the official Capitol portrait for Gale Hawtorne (played by Liam Hemsworth) from the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was released … and boy, is it all smoldery. As you may know, the protagonist character Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) is in a complicated love triangle betwixt Gale and her fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson), whose official Capitol portrait was released earlier today. Click below to see the full size portrait of Katniss‘s other love interest and see how broody he looks in his photo.
Of the two, I think Gale comes across as the more manly suitor while Peeta comes across as the sweeter suitor … which means Katniss has a difficult decision on her hands. As much as I love Peeta, I think I prefer Gale‘s official Capitol portrait. What do y’all think? Which of these two dudes do you prefer portraitwise?
