Joshua Ryan "Josh" Hutcherson (born October 12, 1992) is an American actor. He began his acting career in the early 2000s, appearing in several minor film and television roles. His first acting role came in 2002, in the pilot episode of House Blend. His first film role was landed in 2003, when he appeared in Animal Planet's Miracle Dogs.

Growing up as a child-actor, he gained exposure between 2004 and 2009 with major roles in the films Little Manhattan and Zathura, the comedy RV, and the family adventure film Firehouse Dog. Along the way, he also appeared in film adaptations of The Polar Express, Bridge to Terabithia, Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Kids Are All Right, and Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant. He received eight Young Artist Award nominations for Best Leading Young Actor in those five years, half of which he won.

In 2011, Hutcherson landed the leading role of Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games film series, based on Suzanne Collins' novel series. In between The Hunger Games filming and release, he picked up his first executive producer role on The Forger. Appearances in other films followed, including Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Red Dawn, and a voiceover role in the 2013 animated action-adventure film Epic.

Hutcherson was born in Union, Kentucky, on October 12, 1992.

He has one younger brother, Connor. Hutcherson's ancestry is English, Scottish, German, and remote Irish and French. He attended New Haven Elementary School in Union until he began his career at the age of 9, after which he began homeschooling with his mother as his teacher.

In January 2002, Hutcherson and his mother met acting coach Bob Luke who advised them to head to Los Angeles and begin auditioning for TV pilots. He landed his first acting role in the 2002 pilot episode of House Blend, playing Nicky Harper; in the same year, he appeared in an episode of ER and was cast in the pilot of Becoming Glen. In 2003, he played the lead role, Charlie Logan, in the film Miracle Dogs which was released on Animal Planet. The film, Hutcherson's first, earned a 79% approval rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Later that year, Hutcherson starred opposite Peter Falk and Timothy Daly in the made-for-television film, Wilder Days, and took on the minor role of Robin in the well-reviewed independent film, American Splendor. In 2004's The Polar Express, his character, Hero Boy, was created by motion-capture of his facial expressions and body movements. The film received mixed reviews from critics.

Hutcherson played Jesse Aarons in the fantasy drama Bridge to Terabithia, which was filmed in New Zealand and released on February 16, 2007. Regarding his off-sceen friendship with co-star AnnaSophia Robb, he stated: "We became great friends and I think it showed in the film." The pair both admitted to not having read the novel that the film is based on before being cast in their roles. For Bridge to Terabithia he received his second Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Feature Film by a Leading Young Actor while Robb also received the same award for Leading Young Actress. Hutcherson's next role was in Firehouse Dog (released on April 4, 2007), in which he played Shane Fahey, a firefighter's son who befriends a dog. He was described as very patient and confident while working on set with the animals. He next appeared in the independent drama Winged Creatures, playing Jimmy Jasperson in his first crime film. Released in mid-2008, he starred in Journey to the Center of the Earth, a new 3D version of the novel of the same name, working alongside co-star Brendan Fraser. From 2009 to 2011, Hutcherson appeared in a film adaptation of the book Cirque Du Freak, had a supporting role in the critically acclaimed movie The Kids Are All Right, playing Laser, and was credited as an executive producer as well as an actor in the comedy-horror film, Detention.

After The Hunger Games was released on March 23, 2012 in the United States, Hutcherson received mostly positive reviews on his performance. CNN stated, "[Hutcherson] brings humor and a bruised heart to a boy who needs to mature fast." He was awarded the 2012 NewNowNext award for "Next Mega Star" and the National Association of Theatre Owners's 2012 CinemaCon award for "Breakthrough Performer of the Year." Later in 2012, he appeared in the Red Dawn, a remake of the 1984 film of the same name. The film was panned by critics, achieving only a 12% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the lowest score of any film Hutcherson has appeared in.

In 2013, Hutcherson voiced the character Nod in the animated action-adventure film Epic, alongside Beyoncé and Colin Farrell. Later that year, he reprised his role as Peeta in The Hunger Games sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The film received a 90% average approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes along with a 92% audience approval. It brought in $420 million ($431.45 million in 2014 dollars) at the North American box office, making it Hutcherson's most commercially successful film.
