On screen and on the page, The Hunger Games are a gladiator-style battle to the death. Behind the scenes making the movies, it's another competition altogether.

Just ask Josh Hutcherson who plays Peeta Mellark to Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen.

Having filmed the latest, Hunger Games, Catching Fire, opening Nov. 22, Hutcherson tells Seventeen for its November issue (on sale Oct. 22) that in a test of wits as to who's funnier, he or Lawrence, "We have this debate all the time – I think it's me!"

But then again, as fans of The Hunger Games know, Cinna (played by Lenny Kravitz in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins's hit trilogy) is anything but a stereotypical Capitol citizen.

Assigned to assist Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) as they tour the districts in Catching Fire, his assistance is needed more than ever.

The blockbuster film has provided a boon to the tourism industry in North Carolina, where it was shot, according to Friday's Today show. Fans are flocking to locations such as the Henry River Mill Village, an abandoned mill town outside Charlotte, which is home to the set pieces that were used as Katniss's house and Peeta's bakery.

It's the pink hair that did it.

"I would be in the hair and makeup trailer and I was Elizabeth, and then the wig went on and very suddenly I was Effie," says Banks, 37. "Every day I would have that aha moment, like, 'We did it! We found Effie!' "

In the best-selling The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, Effie serves as a publicity agent of sorts for the Games, a cruel arena battle that pits youths, called "tributes," against each other in a televised fight to the death. The movie opens March 23.
