Shirtless Josh Hutcherson plays frisbee and dives into the ocean as he takes a break from filming

He's been hard at work filming physically taxing scenes for the second movie in The Hunger Games franchise, Catching Fire.

And Josh Hutcherson made sure to make the most of a break from filming as he kicked back on the beach with his co-stars.

The shirtless hunk certainly seemed to be enjoying his tropical surroundings as he took some time out on location in Hawaii, using the short break to take a refreshing dip in the ocean.

The 20-year-old actor, who plays Peeta Mellark in the Hunger Games trilogy, was showing off his newly-acquired anchor tattoo, which he had inked on earlier this year, as he soaked up the sun in his black swimming shorts.

After enjoying a swim, Josh took to the sand for a game of frisbee with his co-stars, and seemed to be demonstrating his fair share of prowess at the sport as he darted about the beach in an expert manner.

In recent days, Josh and his co-star Jennifer Lawrence - who plays leading lady Katniss Everdeen in the adaptation of the Suzanne Collins novel - have been spotted eating fresh fish and brandishing a bow and arrow as they film the second installment in the series.

In a recent interview, Jennifer said she was looking forward to reprising her role as Katniss.
'The new movie will be very real, which is what I’m excited about,' she told 24 Frames of Catching Fire, to be directed by Water for Elephants' Francis Lawrence.

'I really like his take, which is a lot of what I liked in Gary Ross,' Jennifer added about the new director. 'It’s the realistic grasp of the story instead of all the details of the imaginary things.'

The film sequel also introduces several news characters and cast members including Philip Seymour Hoffman as head Gamesmaker Plutarch Heavensbee and Sam Claflin playing heartthrob tribute Finnick Odair

'He's wonderful. He's really sweet, a great, wonderful actor. He's got a great American accent,' Lawrence told MTV about Sam's addition to the cast.
