Theo James was recently announced as the actor who will play Four in the upcoming film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s book Divergent. Theo will star opposite Shailene Woodley, who is playing the part of Tris Prior.

The story takes place in a future Chicago with the city separated into five factions. People are divided into factions based on their personalities. Tris (Shailene Woodley) is told she doesn’t fit perfectly into any one faction — she’s Divergent. Tris needs to keep her Divergent identity secret, otherwise she will be killed. She decides to train in order to join the daring faction, the Dauntless. Four (Theo James) is Tris’ instructor. Tris falls in love with Four, but decides to keep their relationship a secret as she sets out to discover what makes a Divergent so dangerous — before it’s too late.

Divergent sounds like it’s going to be and action-packed thriller, and we are so excited to see it come to life on the big screen! Will Theo make a good Four? Do you think Divergent will be the next Hunger Games? Or, is it just not possible to top Katniss and Peeta? Sound off in the comments and on Twitter!

    “We took our time to find the right actor to fill the role of Four, and Theo is definitely the perfect fit,” Really?!! a perfect fit if Four was a 30 year old with a receding hairline. What a slap in the face… Stay true to the book my arse! There must be shenanigans behind this casting, there is no way they upped the age of the character by 10 years “just cuz.” Everyone should know the name of the casting director responsible, her name is Mary Vernieu and her assistant Venus Kanani , they hold a lot of the blame for ruining what could of been a decent franchise. Four will be 35 by the third film! Think about that!

  8. Mel says:

    Really? They did a 30 year old man to play tobias? He’s only 18 in the book!!! I hope they can fix this somehow

    I agree, I think that Theo James should be Tris’ brother, if anything, the age is just too far apart, but I do LOVE Theo James he is SUPER HOT!
