Rise and shine, tributes! How was Catching Fire last night? Everything you wanted it to be? Or maybe you didn't stay up all night to see the epic flick at midnight. That's cool! You've got alllll weekend! But until then, consider this:

Can you imagine anyone other than Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the Hunger Games movies?!

We can’t either! The casting department got it RIGHT when they signed these three for the parts of Katniss, Peeta and Gale! That’s for sure!

Buuuut, just in case J.Law, J.Hutch or L.Hem said no, producers had a list of names that would volunteer as tribute and take their place in the film series!

So who came in second in the Hunger Games casting arena?!

Find out who didn't have the odds in their favor…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Lyndsy Fonseca as Katniss Everdeen!

We hear producers really shined to Lyndsy Fonseca when she auditioned for the role of Katniss! In fact, the Kick-Ass actress was even on their radars BEFORE Jennifer Lawrence’s name was brought up! Lyndsey even read lines for the part at director Gary Ross’ house!

Hunter Parrish as Peeta Mellark!

Weeds star Hunter Parrish was a serious frontrunner for the role of Peeta before Josh Hutcherson won the part! Parrish and Hutch are actually close friends in real life, but that didn’t stop hunky Hunter from acting his a$$ of in order to get into the Hunger Games! He came soooo close!

David Henrie as Gale Hawthorne!

So how did How I Met Your Mother kid David Henrie hear about the role of Gale Hawthorne? It was his co-star Lyndsy Fonseca who filled him in on the Hunger Games casting call while she was trying out for Katniss! David ended up reading for both Gale and Peeta but producers felt he fell short for both parts.

    If they were second choice then they could not have stolen the roles from them.

    Asians in general can hear, and see what you're visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don't want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

    Oh, geez. I am so glad those Jen, Josh and Liam were the ones to get the main roles. I don't know how successful the movie would have been with Lyndsy, Hunter and David. I don't even want to think about it. haha

    Hunter Parrish was my first choice ! He's so much better (and handsome) than Josh Hutcherson!

    Re: ely – Agreed! Hunter Parrish!

    Obviously I love the cast we got, but it would've been hilarious if Ted Mosby's children turned out to be Katniss and Gale!
