Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! The wait for Tobias is currently killing me:P


Erin | 4 comments Oh my God!!!! I am so excited for the movie! This book is my all time favorite! And they've picked such great people so far!!!!


Sabrina | 2 comments Holy buckets! HE has been cast! Theo James is pretty darn hot, even though I pictured Tobias much differently. It's coming together very quickly-so excited!

Lydia Cool cast so far I think. I really like the Jeanine and Tori casts, but the rest seem good too.

@Marilyn: The past tense of cast is "cast" not "casted." Sorry, but these sort of things bother my OCD mind :)

Thanks! All of them are fixed.

Oh wow, Tobias...I'm trying to decide if I like the guy they cast for him or not. I'll get back to you on that one. But Peter looks totally Peter to me, and ditto for Eric and Jeanine:)

Lydia He's a little too old. I think he'll be good, I just wish he were younger.


An Extremely Avid Reader's Reviews (literarymary) He looks young enough if he shaves, and there can also be alterations easily done to make him look younger by computers.

I think I can trust this guy with Tobias. He was okay in Downton Abbey, so I'm taking a leap of faith here. He does look kind of old, but I agree with Marilyn; he looks younger when he shaves and they can make him look younger with all the movie peoples techy wisdom. I think he'll make it work (though Jack Reynor still would've been better, I'm happy Lucas Till didn't get the role).

Yep, glad he didn't get the role either. Though I don't mind him in other things, I don't think Alex Petyffer would make a good Tobias/Four.


An Extremely Avid Reader's Reviews (literarymary) Divergent is less than a year away now!

Gah! Can't wait!!!


Graydon | 9 comments I can't wait so far! I think the movie will be amazing! The cast so far is pretty good. Oh, and does anybody know who the director for the movie is?


Wayan | 9 comments cast seems pretty good so far
can't wait for Uriah though!

Also, according to Divergentfans.com, Tori is Maggie Q(ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FOR THE PART) and they are thinking that Aaron Eckhart will be Andrew and Ray Stevenson will be Marcus


Aaliyah | 1 comments Tori is Maggie Q. But I dont think Zoe Kravitz fits the part very well

What about David Boreanez? (I forget the spelling.) I thought he was up for something... but Aaron Echart is awesome :D


KylieAwesome | 5 comments I don't think Theo James is a very good choice for Four/Tobias... also Shailene Woodley is too pretty to play Tris...


Maydelene | 1 comments Theo James is not a good choice. I mean tobias is just 18 in the book. and theo is 28. I think that's a little wrong. And if you look at Shailene and Theo, they don't look good together. he's a little old to play tobias. :/

I don't really agree with that statement. Think about all the movies, all the TV shows (all the plays you've seen, even). It's very abnormal for the actors to be the same age as the characters their portraying, mostly because older actors have more time and experience under their belt. And while I'm not losing my mind over the fact that Theo was chosen over other actors I preferred, I don't think it's fair to say he won't be a good Tobias/Four because he [Theo] is ten years older than his character.

Sorry, I'm upset about it too, but Uriah is not going to be casted until Insurgent


Meranda (chloemaleficent) | 5 comments I hate who's playing tris and Tobias. They better be better actors in this movie than in the past or my vision will be shattered


Livvy (livvylu) | 49 comments I feel embarrassed to say it, but I don't really remember who Lauren is, even though I've read Divergent and Insurgent twice.


message 33: by Lydia (new) - added it

Lydia She trained the Dauntless-born Initiates. She only has like two scenes so it's not a big deal if you forgot her.


Livvy (livvylu) | 49 comments The Mighty Katara wrote: "She trained the Dauntless-born Initiates. She only has like two scenes so it's not a big deal if you forgot her."

YES! Okay, I remember her now...:)


Livvy (livvylu) | 49 comments I looked up the actress for Lauren...anyone wanna tell me why half the pictures that popped up involved Twilight?


message 36: by Lydia (new) - added it

Lydia I don't think she's from Twilight... I just assumed she was a nobody actor.


Livvy (livvylu) | 49 comments I did too, but there were a bunch of twilight pictures when I googled her name. Was she involved somehow? Maybe she had the chance to be one of the characters and didn't make it?


message 38: by Lydia (new) - added it

Lydia It's possible.


Livvy (livvylu) | 49 comments Yep...I you dying for a trailer to come out, because I definitely am.


message 40: by Lydia (new) - added it

Lydia Who isn't? I'm more impatient for Allegiant right now. I think I need to reread the other two first though.


Livvy (livvylu) | 49 comments Yeah, Allegiant's killing me too (what's also killing me is how GR doesn't think allegiant is a real word). You should re-read the other two, I did that in January (though, I might do it again). Do you know what divergentfansite is?


message 42: by Lydia (new) - added it

Lydia I'm thinking I'll reread them in September or something, so all the facts can be fresh in my mind. I have so many books I want to reread, but then they get pushed back by books I need to read for the first time and ugh. I don't have nearly enough time for fangirling :'(
