Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Josh Hutcherson
will follow in costar Jennifer Lawrence's footsteps and host this week's episode of Saturday Night Live
. If the promos below are any indication, the 21-year-old Hunger Games: Catching Fire
star will be just as game as his onscreen love interest.
In a few bits with SNL cast member Bobby Moynihan, who played embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in last week's cold open, Hutcherson is introduced as one of the youngest people to host the show in long while. He trades a few barbs with Moynihan, who punches him in the jaw, and also finds himself on fire with some CGI flames.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters this Friday.
