Video: Josh Hutcherson Mocks His 'Hunger Games' Character on 'SNL'
In the opening monologue, the weekend's host shows just how weak Peeta Mellark is against even a hand palm.


Josh Hutcherson poked fun at his "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" character's fragility on "Saturday Night Live". Hutcherson mocked Peeta Mellark in the opening monologue, saying, "I play Peeta, the brave young hero who immediately gets hurt and has to be carried around for the rest of the movie."

Huctherson was immediately joined by Kate McKinnon as Effie Trinket and Cecily Strong as Katniss Everdeen. They did the vote in which Noel Wells was chosen and Strong volunteered. Strong then hurt Huctherson with a high five and carried him on her back. At the end of the monologue, Huctherson dropped the bomb that he did not know about "Hunger Games" originating from a book.

In one of the sketches, Hutcherson performed as part of a subway dance troupe with Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah. Thanksgiving reference was made in a sketch where the actor is a man bringing home a turkey as his girlfriend. He is also one of the three employees in the worst animal hospital where pets die.

The November 23 episode was also highlighted by Beck Bennett's performance as an office boss trapped in a baby's body. HAIM performed two songs including "Don't Save Me" as the episode's musical guest.

"SNL" continues next week with Paul Rudd as host and One Direction as musical guest. This will be Rudd's third hosting appearance and One Direction's second time as musical guest.
