Actor Josh Hutcherson went for the role of Peter Parker

The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson‘s audition tape for The Amazing Spider-Man has been leaked online – and he does some seriously OTT acting in it.

The teen actor, 19, made the video in 2010 in a bid to win the role of Peter Parker in the movie, which is currently No 1 at the UK and US box offices.

In the audition, which has been edited to include special effects and background music, he acts out a choreographed fight scene, making funny facial expressions.

Unfortunately for Josh, he lost out on the part to British actor Andrew Garfield, 28.

However, it’s unlikely that he would have been too upset – The Hunger Games became one of the highest-grossing films of all time earlier this year and he’s due to star in a sequel in 2013.
