Finally, the wait for fangirls (and boys) everywhere is over. Lionsgate announced today that Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are officially cast -- after being outed as frontrunners last week -- as Peeta and Gale, respectively, in the company's huge tentpole adaptation "The Hunger Games." The boys join female lead Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss; Hutcherson plays Lawrence's love interest when she's placed in an arena to fight for her life, while Hemsworth is Lawrence's best friend waiting at home. The decision comes at the end of a long wait for casting choices. Other candidates for the parts included Hunter Parrish of "Weeds" and Lucas Till of the upcoming "X-Men: First Class" for Peeta and Disney star Drew Roy for Gale.
