Divergent Casting Rumors: Who Will Play Four?

by at . Comments

The Hunger Games is so 2012.

With movie studios always on the lookout for the next big franchise, attention has recently turned to Divergent, an upcoming big screen adaption based on Veronica Roth's debut novel.

Divergent Book

Taking place in dystopian Chicago, within a universe that has been split into five African tribes, the story is narrated by Beatrice "Tris" Prior, a 16-year old who chooses one of those tribes on her 16th birthday.

Summit Entertainment began casting the film in October, and while the role of Tris is a long way from being decided, a bevy of actors recently read for Tobias "Four" Eaton, Tris' instructor and love interest.

According to Movie Fanatic, Alex Pettyfer, Lucas Till, and Jeremy Irvine are considered the early favorites, while Luke Bracey, Brenton Thwaites, and Jack Reynor have also tested for the role.

Have you read Divergent? Who do you want to see in the main roles?

Keegan Allen as four!!! First person I thought of who would be perfect for this part! Four is described as having “a spare upper lip, and a full lower lip. His eyes are so deep-set that his eyelashes touch the skin under his eyebrows, and they are dark blue, a dreaming sleeping, waiting color. His voice is deep, and it rumbles. He smirks. He has a stillness about him….His voice is low and smooth and almost soothing…[his eyes are] a shade of blue is peculiar, so dark it is almost black…He is muscular, nothing on his body yields. His hair is dark, almost black, especially when he cuts it short.” two words: Keegan Allen

I imagined Joshua Bowman as four, actually - I honestly think he would be perfect. He's not too old either, unlike a lot of the actors they're looking at!!

Out of all those 3 guys, I hope Jeremy Irvine will get the role of Four.
Lucas Till would be perfect for Will.

I say Max Irons would be perfect, aside from the age difference.
