MTV: Liam Hemsworth is One to Watch
We're kicking off our Ones to Watch week here at MTV News, with features all week long on the up-and-coming actors who are destined to become the cream of the A-list crop. And right out of the gate, we've got our eye on a couple familiar faces: Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson! (And yes, that sound you hear is every "Hunger Games" fan in the world saying, "NO DUH.")
It's obvious why Josh and Liam are on our list: They're talented, they're Hollywood handsome and their respective roles in one of next year's most buzzed-about movies (not to mention its three anticipated sequels) will be propelling them right into the celebrity spotlight in 2012.
None of which is lost on Josh, who said, "2012 is going to be a really big year, I'm looking forward to it. [There's going to be] a lot of press, a lot of traveling with that. I'm excited for 'The Hunger Games' to come out, and see how that does, and hopefully get started on the second one."
Liam, meanwhile, seems a bit shell-shocked by his own fame and fortune in the movie world—he even confessed (in his rarely heard but totally charming natural Aussie accent) to being super-intimidated by meeting and working with his favorite action heroes on "The Expendables." And when it comes to "The Hunger Games," his feelings about the flick pretty much mirror our own:
"I'm excited to see it!"
But while Liam's still wrapping his head around the star turn his career has taken, Josh—who has, after all, been acting since childhood—made a savvy pronouncement about his plans that leaves no doubt about his staying power.
"It's all about balance; everything in life is about balance, in my opinion," he said. "You have to do the big studio movies to keep people caring about you in a way, and also for me, I've been really fortunate. I haven't done any big studio movies that suck. They've all been good material, and that's the most important thing for my career, to choose the right material and to choose the characters that I care about and stories I want to tell."
Which, hopefully, will always be thrilling, dramatic, hotly anticipated-round-these-parts stories like "The Hunger Games."
Or stories involving lots of shirtlessness. We're not picky.

Liam Hemsworth featured in Comso
You dyed your light hair dark brown for The Hunger Games. What did you think of the experience?
I didn’t like it. I’d never colored my hair before, and it definitely gave me sympathy for what women go through.
Your girlfriend, Miley Cyrus, works a lot too. Any tips for making a long-distance romance work?
Skype! A little bit every day. For those long stretches apart, just to see her face makes it so much easier.
What does your ideal guys’ night consist of?
Playing Xbox all night and watching Family Guy.
Who do you have a man crush on?
I don’t think there’s a man in the world who doesn’t have a crush on George Clooney. He’s just too cool.

Liam on Zimbio's '12 Rising Stars to Watch in 2012' list
2. Liam Hemsworth
Who he is: This 21-year-old Australian hottie is the little brother of Thor's Chris Hemsworth.
Where you've seen him: Liam Hemsworth played Miley Cyrus' boyfriend in the Nicholas Sparks tearjerker, The Last Song, and still plays her boyfriend in real life.
Why he'll be big in 2012: If you haven't heard of The Hunger Games yet, you soon will. Liam plays Gale, the hunting partner and best friend of Katniss, a girl who is forced to fight against other teens in a televised battle to the death. He's also got a slew of upcoming films, including The Expendables 2 and Empire State with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Is 2012 the Year of the Hemsworth?
Australian megahunk movie stars aren't exactly a new thing at the multiplex. The land of koalas and Marmite has been steadily infiltrating our big screens since Mad Max growled about seeing a vehicle that could haul that tanker. We've enjoyed them all as they've come by: Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Eric Bana, Heath Ledger ... and now, Chris and Liam Hemsworth.
And boy, do those two have a year ahead of them. Forget Mayan predictions and the apocalypse. 2012 promises to be the year of the Hemsworth. (We haven't ruled out that they might factor into the end of the world. Two handsome Aussie actors in one genetic strain? How is that possible?)
"In the past, the brothers have succeeded in staggering their projects," says Amy Wilkinson of Hollywood Crush. "Chris caught America's attention with his brief role in 2009's 'Star Trek' reboot. Liam set women swooning in 2010's Nicholas Sparks adaptation 'The Last Song.' And Chris returned in 2011 wielding the box-office hammer with 'Thor.' 2012 marks the first year both will have high-profile projects headlining the marquee."
Initially, it would appear 2012 belongs to the elder Hemsworth, Chris. After all, he's no less than Thor, God of Thunder, and he doesn't have to wait a year or two to remind audiences of his godliness. He gets to come back swinging in "The Avengers" (May 1), and stand bicep to bicep with a screen full of snappy superheroes.
If all he had was 'The Avengers,' Chris would be king. But he has no fewer than three movies in 2012: "The Cabin in the Woods" (April 13), "Snow White and the Huntsman" (June 1), and the long-delayed "Red Dawn" (November 2). Each offers a unique chance for Hemsworth to prove he's more than just blond locks and a rippling physique. Yes, two of the films star Hemsworth as hunky hero, but the rough, grim, bitter Huntsman and the plucky guerilla warfare of "Red Dawn" are both a long way from Thor's thunder.
Liam Hemsworth may only have two films on his slate, but they're really big films. While he may have lost "Thor" to Chris, he quickly landed his own franchise with "The Hunger Games" (March 23), and he has to meet similarly massive fan expectations when he steps into the ring as Gale Hawthorne. "Hunger" fans have been vocal in their skepticism, but he's won praise from Jennifer Lawrence and Gary Ross, suggesting he'll be the Gale we wanted all along.
"Games" may easily win against Hemsworth's other blockbuster-to-be: "The Expendables 2" (Aug. 17). Hemsworth was to appear in the first "Expendables," but his character, Billy the Kid, was written out. Sylvester Stallone stayed a fan, though, and Hemsworth's Billy is set to fight for screen time against one of the biggest casts ever assembled. Action fans sneered when "Mr. Miley Cyrus" was cast alongside Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Willis, but you don't get to join the Expendables unless you're the manliest of the men.
The Hemsworths won't just be battling with stacked casts, a big movie year, and fan expectations. They're also competing with one another for dollars and dominance. Chris is currently the bigger star, and with four movies to his slate, he can only climb higher on the A-list. But expectations are enormous for all four films, and with such high hopes comes a harder fall.
Liam has many to please, but with so much criticism thrown his way, he has nowhere to go but up. "It will largely depend on how meaty Liam's role is in 'The Hunger Games,'" says Wilkinson. "Fans of the novel know that Gale doesn't get a lot of ink in the first installment, but online chatter seems to indicate that the part has been beefed up for the film version. If that's the case, I think this will be Liam's year to catch fire."
Forget Batman and hobbits. 2012 has to be wrestled away from Chris and Liam Hemsworth. We wouldn't want to be pitted against either Thor or Gale, especially not when they're backed by one another. But at least we get to watch the brotherly battle play out -- and when it comes to declaring a winner, we'll just go ahead and say it's us.
