Actor Josh Hutcherson has been chosen as the official spokesperson for Teen Read Week 2008.  15-year old Josh has appeared in many movies, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Bridge to Terabithia.  He recently finished filming Cirque du Freak, based on the series by Darren Shan.  Here’s a brief excerpt from a recent interview:How has reading helped you become a movie star?

Well, I have to read a lot of scripts first of all. Also, reading helps you learn about the type of character that you are going to play. For example, if you are going to play a role of someone who lived in the 18th century, you have to read about life back then in order to understand your character.

Hi! My main hangout in the Library is the Teen Underground, but you'll find me wandering all over the building. Originally from Northeast Iowa, I've lived in the Chicago area long enough that people don't tell me I sound like a character from "Fargo" anymore. I geek out on ginger ale and black licorice, Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin, and if I were a dog I'd be a shiba inu.

    If Josh Hutcherson is a jerk, does it really matter? He’s an actor and he does a good job at what he does. He does what he’s paid to do. And if he can put on a good front for he cameras continuously for the cameras when he’s really not nice, then doesn’t that make him a better actor? I don’t like stuck-up people at all but they have feelings too. And I assure you he is not the only jerk out there…………. just saying.

    I personally love Josh. I don’t really know how you guys know personally that he’s a jerk. He seems like a really nice guy. I’m SURE that’s I’ve come off as rude to someone. And maybe it someone spreading rumors. You never know.
