Josh Hutcherson‘s first lead role since The Hunger Games is here. The Peeta Mellark actor will be the lead in Seth Rogen’s half-hour comedy pilot, Future Man.
The pilot, produced for Hulu, is about a janitor named Josh Futterman who must save humanity from extinction.
According to Variety, the character of Josh is “socially inept” and has “low self-esteem.” But he’s also “a world-ranked videogamer by night,” and excels in a dystopian game Cybergeddon “where his character, Future Man, has the top ranking in the world; when he beats the final level, he’s visited by characters from the game who claim it’s been his training manual and he’s been selected to travel back in time and help them save the world.”
