'Hunger Games' star to guest judge Syfy's 'Face Off' -- exclusive

FACE OFF HUTCHERSON 01

A big name from The Hunger Games franchise is coming to Syfy: Josh Hutcherson will guest judge an episode of the channel’s reality hit Face Off.

In the upcoming eighth season’s third episode – titled “Let the Games Begin” – Hutcherson will join The Hunger Games makeup department head Ve Neill and her fellow judges (Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page) to critique the contestants’ cinema-inspired predator creature designs.

The casting is fitting since Hutcherson’s character Peeta Mellark used camouflage makeup to conceal himself in the franchise’s first film (perhaps Face Off contestants should practice their craft by decorating cakes?).

Face Off returns Tuesday, Jan. 13 for a double-episode premiere. As previously announced, makeup legend Rick Baker (American Werewolf in London) will appear those first two episodes. Hutcherson’s episode airs Jan. 27 at 9 p.m.
