The Peeta Mellark depicter gets punched by Bobby Moynihan and pokes fun at 'The Hunger Games' in the promo video.
In between his promotional duty for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", Josh Hutcherson will stop by "Saturday Night Live" this weekend. The actor will serve as the host for the November 23 edition, being one of the youngest hosts on the NBC show.
As part of his hosting gig, the "Bridge to Terabithia" star appears in an "SNL" promo with the show's regular Bobby Moynihan. He gets punched in the face twice by the funnyman when revealing that he's only 21 years old.
The two also talk about their worst summer jobs and make reference to Katniss and Peeta's flaming costumes in "The Hunger Games". In another skit, Moynihan asks a spoiler from "Catching Fire", to which Hutcherson replies, "Everybody dies," before adding, "That's a joke."
HAIM will serve as the musical guest this week.
Met at the "Catching Fire" premiere in Los Angeles earlier this week, Hutcherson said he's "so excited" about his upcoming "SNL" hosting gig. He added, "That's like a dream of a lifetime to do 'SNL'. It's something I've always I've loved watching growing up and everything and to be a part of it-I'm nervous but I'm excited. It's a good kind of nervous."
His "Hunger Games" co-star Jennifer Lawrence hosted the variety series earlier this year. Sharing the advice the Oscar-winning actress gave to him, the actor told E! News, "She told me to not hold back and to give it my all."
