It’s no secret that Josh Hutcherson likes sports. He’s a proud fan of Kentucky basketball, he once threw out the first pitch at a Cincinnati Reds game — and now, you’ll have the chance to watch him play basketball!
As NBA.com reports:
This year’s rosters include celebrities from film, TV, and music. Reigning 2012 Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game MVP Kevin Hart (“Real Husbands of Hollywood”), will look to defend his title alongside stars like Grammy Award-winner Ne-Yo (R&B/pop); Nick Cannon (“Real Husbands of Hollywood”); Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games); Trey Songz (R&B Singer/Actor); Usain Bolt (Olympic gold medal sprinter); Arne Duncan (Secretary of Education); Terrence Jenkins (“E! News,” Anchor); Common (Rapper/Actor); John Schriffen (ABC News Correspondent); Ryen Russillo (ESPN Host); NBA Legends Dikembe Mutombo (eight-time NBA All-Star), Clyde Drexler (ten-time NBA All-Star), Sean Elliott (two-time NBA All-Star), and Bruce Bowen (NBA legend); WNBA stars Tamika Catchings ( Indiana Fever) and Maya Moore (Minnesota Lynx).
Queen Latifah (Rapper/Singer/Actress) and Samantha Harris (TV Host) will be the assistant coaches.
Yes, it’s a celebrity game, but Josh will be front and center, taking shots, making passes, and playing defense. If his turn as Peeta is any indication, he should be good at camouflaging himself within the offense and then sneaking in for quick layups.
The game starts at 7:00 p.m. ET!
