THREE MORE MALE STARS TO TEST FOR THE ROLE OF FOUR! 3 of the hottest Hollywood male stars are going to be tested along side Shailene Woodley for the role of Tobias in the Divergent movie later this week! The front runner? Variety.com reports that since Lucas Till (left) has been tested out once before, he might have a slight advantage compared to Alex Pettyfer (center) and Jeremy Irvine (right). Summit previously tested Till, Brenton Thwaites, Luke Bracey and Jack Reynor in November for the same role. Who do you think will get the role? Who is most Four/Tobias-like to you?

So yes, this is old news and we apologize for publishing late on our blog but you may get more frequent and updated news on our Facebook page!
Anyway, to continue.. we all know the amazing and gorgeous Shailene Woodley is on talks of becoming the movie’s Tris Prior and here’s what Veronica Roth has to say about her in her blog:
“From the moment I heard that she was being considered, I have been nothing but enthusiastic. My priority has always been, first and foremost, that the role of Tris be well-acted, and Shailene has proven how talented she is, as anyone who has seen The Descendants can attest. And physically, what’s most important to me, far and away more important than other aspects of her appearance, is that Tris does not look like an action hero— she looks like a slight person with youthful, delicate features, someone who shocks you with how strong and capable she becomes. To me, that is exactly the look Shailene has, exactly the look I’ve always had in my mind. From what I’ve seen, I’m confident she will be able to capture Tris’s particular mixture of vulnerability and strength, and that surprising moment when a seemingly unremarkable girl from Abnegation transforms into a powerful yet flawed young woman.”
Do you guys think Shailene Woodley has what it takes to be our very own Tris Prior? Tell us what you think! But Veronica Roth did not only react to Shailene being cast, but also to movie director Neil Burger!
“Neil Burger directed The Illusionist and Limitless, both movies that I enjoyed immensely, both visually dynamic and interesting. Soon after the deal was closed I got the opportunity to speak with him on the phone. I was nervous beforehand— handing over your work for someone else to interpret is always nerve-wracking, and I wasn’t sure what to expect.
But by the time I hung up— an hour and a half later!— I felt very reassured. Neil knew the books remarkably well, and asked some amazing questions about the world and the story, and generally demonstrated tremendous respect for the books and for my answers. I actually found myself wishing he had been around while I was writing, to help me think through the particularities of the world of Divergent! I’m sure I would have been more efficient if he had. Like I have before, I’m feeling like my work is in good good hands.
Because I feel so reassured by my experience with Neil and his work, I’ve felt pretty calm about any and all casting news I’ve received, knowing that all the people who are working on this movie have a strong vision for it that is grounded in the books.”
It sounds like Veronica Roth only wants the best for the fans and what she thinks will do justice to her series. Miss V has been very motivated to make the third and final book of the series perfect and so we think that she’s doing her best to work on the movie too! Tell us what you think of all these movie updates (which has been happening very frequently now I tell you) by tweeting us @DivergentPH or send us a message on Facebook or here on Tumblr!
Our very own Beatrice Prior, Shailene Woodley, ladies and gentlemen!
This has been an eventful month, don’t you think? :) Marked by so many celebrity additions to our Divergent family, movie updates, casting and so much more (posts coming up in a while!)
Trevor Donovan, more famously known as Teddy Montgomery on the teen drama television series 90210 apparently reads Divergent also!
Quoting his tweet @TrevDon, “Ya need to read #Divergent So when I say random things like…”Dauntless is similar to a co-ed fight club” u’ll know what i’m talking about”
Julie Anne San Jose,award winning Filipina singer and actress also reads Divergent!
Max Thieriot, an American actor also started to read the series! During the 2000s, he appeared in several Hollywood films, including My Soul to Take, Catch That Kid, The Pacifier, Nancy Drew, Jumper, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, and Chloe.
Recently, HungerGamesTrilogy posted this video of Alexander “Cato” Ludwig’s UStream expressing his interest in playing Four and saying he is definitely keeping an eye on the developments of the movie production.
The subject came up on 5:15 and ends at 5:55
So how about you, do you think Alexander Ludwig will make a good Four?
