Los Angeles — If they were doing a Hunger Games remake, who should play the leading roles?

We recently posed the question to the franchise's three young stars — Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth — and they came up with some entertaining answers.

Hemsworth, aka Gale Hawthorne, boldly going first: "I'd probably want Melissa McCarthy to play my part. I just think she's great and she would bring so much honesty and truth to the role."

Lawrence, aka Katniss Everdeen, upping the ante for her character: "I feel like Keanu Reeves or Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson could really bring the strength that I was lacking, and the agility. But if I were going female I'd go with Bette Davis. And I guess the obvious choice would be Shailene Woodley. She's proven that she could do it."

Hutcherson, aka Peeta Mellark, trying to be more contemplative about who'd fill his role: "I would choose young Dustin Hoffman, if it's possible to go back in time. As in, The Graduate or Marathon Man."

Hemsworth, sneaking one in at the buzzer: "Wait — I think Jim Carrey could also really be great as Gale."
