His episode airs just one day after Catching Fire hits theaters. Earlier this year, co-star Jennifer Lawrence hosted ‘SNL,’ with her episode including a skit based on The Hunger Games. One of the jokes poked fun at Hutcherson’s oft-noted height difference (he’s considerably shorter than the actress).
It’s likely another Hunger Games-related skit will be included in the show. In fact, especially given the release of Catching Fire, it would be shocking if the “SNL” crew did NOT feature a skit about The Hunger Games.
Hutcherson will be joined on “SNL” by musical guest HAIM. One week earlier, Lady Gaga plays double duty on the show as both host and musical guest.
