Jai Courtney Cast as Eric in Divergent

by at . Comments

Yes, yes, we're all squealing with anticipation over who will play Four in the upcoming adaptation of the YA novel Divergent.

Will it be Magic Mike's Alex Pettyfer? Will it be X-Men: First Class' Lucas Till? Or maybe Lost's Jorge Garcia? (Can you find the made up casting rumor?)

Well, you'll just have to calm down and wait for that one. In the meantime, we do have a bit of casting news: Jai Courtney has been tabbed to play Eric.

Jai Courtney Jack Reacher

The film follows a girl named Tris in a futuristic society, as she is initiated into one of the five factions that each citizen must join.

Courtney's character is the corrupt leader of that faction, called "Dauntless."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Shailene Woodley stars in the lead role.

Divergent is set to begin filming some time this year.
