Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark

The Hunger Games star, Josh Hutcherson is blonde again and back in training to get ready to play Peeta in Catching Fire.

He told USA Today  that he will be getting in even better shape to take on the sequel.

Josh Hutcherson has promised that his Peeta inThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire is going to be even buffer than in the original.

“I’m getting in even better shape this time around,” Hutcherson tells USA TODAY about the film, which begins production next month.

At the start of the follow-up to the wildly successful The Hunger Games, Peeta returns home a victor in the 74th gladiatorial event.

“After the games, Peeta would have been taking care of himself physically. And he’s gone back to the village and is able to eat healthy,” says Hutcherson. “So I’ve been training and getting ready for that.”

Though don’t expect to see a bodybuilder when Catching Firehits screens on Nov. 22, 2013. “I’m keeping it in the realm of the first one,” says Hutcherson.

For the first Hunger Games, Hutcherson put on 15 pounds of muscle to play Peeta, eating a diet of chicken, eggs and broccoli. He and co-star Liam Hemsworth also were “whipped” into shape by a Navy SEAL for weeks before shooting began.

“It was intense,” Hutcherson said at the time. “It was tire flipping and dragging random stuff around. It was never like, ‘let’s go bench press.’ “
