The cast of "The Hunger Games" was relatively unknown before it was announced that they would be participating in the film adaptation of one of the most popular trilogies of all time. All of them had notable television and film roles under their belts, and a few had received high profile award nominations, but they weren't exactly household names. "The Hunger Games" definitely changed all that. Traditionally, when an actor suddenly makes it big, they begin buying things, or paying off old debts, depending on how successful their career was prior to their breakout role. Josh Hutcherson had enjoyed a steady, but relatively low-key series of successes, with principal roles in such films as "Little Manhattan", "Zathura", "Bridge to Terabithia", "Journey to the Center of the Earth", and "The Kids Are Alright". So, in tried-and-true "new star" fashion, Mr. Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark in "The Hunger Games" series, went shopping. His purchase? A brand new house.
Josh Hutcherson's house in Los Angeles is 1,8161 square feet and is made up of two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was nicknamed, "The Tree House", as it is perched above Laurel Canyon area and surrounded by sycamore trees. The property has been owned by a long list of celebs, including, but not limited to, Ellen DeGeneres, producer David Weismann, actor Adrian Bellani, actor Heath Ledger. Josh Hutcherson's house, which he purchased for $2.5 million, has a barbecue area, a media lounge, seating areas built into the trees around the property, polished concrete floors, high wood-beamed ceilings, and a living room with a fireplace. Judging by the amount of turnover in ownership, this seems to be the house that everyone buys when they book their first superstar gig. If you're an aspiring celebrity, keep your eye on Josh Hutcherson's house. He seems to be on the rise, so he may not be there very long.
