Josh Hutcherson has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most accomplished young actors. Josh has already received many accolades throughout his career including the 2012 Cinema Con Award for “Breakthrough Actor,” MTV Movie Award for “Best Male Performance,” the Teen Choice Award for “Best Actor: Sci-Fi/Fantasy” and Logo’s New Now Next Award for the “Next Mega Star.”

Josh is best known for his portrayal of Peeta Mellark in the highly successful franchise, The Hunger Games alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks. Based on the novels by Suzanne Collins, all four films in The Hunger Games franchise set enormous box office records.

Josh will soon be seen in the third and final season of Hulu’s original sci-fi comedy series, “Future Man,” set to release on April 3. From executive producers Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, the series, for which Hutcherson also serves as a producer, follows a janitor who must battle an intergalactic invasion and co-stars Eliza Couple and Derek Wilson. Josh recently lent his voice to the title role of Elliot in Awesometown Entertainment’s animated film, Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer and starred in the indie thriller, Burn, alongside Suki Waterhouse. Josh is also set to start filming the upcoming Showtime dramedy pilot, Rita, staring Lena Headey, Bryce Gangel, Curtiss Cook, and Darren Pettie.

In 2017, Josh co-starred in two James Franco directed films: In Dubious Battle, follows an activist who gets caught up in the labor movement for farm workers in California during the 1930s and also stars Franco himself, Robert Duvall, Selena Gomez and Ed Harris; and The Disaster Artist, a satirical drama that tells the story behind the creation of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, widely regarded to be one of the worst films ever made. The film premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival to rave reviews and went on to receive an Academy Award nomination for “Best Adapted Screenplay,” as well as three nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association including “Best Comedy.”  In addition, Josh also completed production on a third James Franco film entitled The Long Home, a drama set in the 1940s in rural Tennessee where a young man goes to work for a bootlegger unaware that he had murdered his father ten years prior.

Josh and Michelle Hutcherson’s production company, Turkeyfoot Productions, partnered with Condé Nast Entertainment and Indigenous Media to launch five short films as part of “The Big Script,” an incubator featuring rising millennial filmmakers. The project aims to find and produce independently created content that can thrive on digital and emerging platforms and is driven by unique voices. Each of the short films was released on the Condé Nast-owned digital platform, The Scene. In addition to playing a prominent role in selecting the original scripts, producing all five films and mentoring the filmmakers, Josh Hutcherson made his directorial debut in the film, Ape, the short in which he also stars.

Additional film credits include Escobar: Paradise Lost, a drama about the notorious kingpin Pablo Escobar; the animated film Epic; Red Dawn; Journey 2: Mysterious Island; the independent feature film Detention, in which Hutcherson also served as Executive Producer; Seven Days in Havana, an omnibus film which features seven shorts directed by seven different directors; Lisa Cholodenko’s Academy Award-nominated film, The Kids are All Right, which also garnered Screen Actors Guild, Independent Spirit Awards and Golden Globe nominations; The Vampire’s Assistant, opposite John C. Reilly and Salma Hayek; Carmel; Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D, the first ever high definition 3-D live performance feature; Bridge To Terabithia; Winged Creatures; Firehouse Dog; RV; Little Manhattan; Zathura; Kicking and Screaming; Howl’s Moving Castle; and The Polar Express.  Josh won Young Artist Awards for “Leading Young Actor” for his roles in both Zathura and Bridge to Terabithia.

In addition to acting, Josh is extremely involved with his charity organization, Straight But Not Narrow (SBNN). SBNN is an ally organization that prepares and trains young adults on how to become allies of their LGBTQ peers. For the past three years, Josh has hosted a variety of sporting events to raise funds and awareness for the organization. In 2012, he was honored with GLAAD’s “Vanguard Award” for his work with the LGBT community.

Recently, Hutcherson segued behind the camera and made his music video directorial debut with West Coast Massive and Brayton Bowman’s single, “High and Low.”

Hutcherson currently resides in Los Angeles.

Josh Futturman hasn’t amounted to much. He still lives at home with his parents and has a dead end job as a janitor at Kronish Labs, a sexual disease research facility.

His only escape from his humdrum existence is his favorite video game, the famously unwinnable Biotic Wars.
