Veronica Roth has confirmed that Theo James has been cast as Four in the movie adaptation of the novel Divergent. Theo James was last spotted in Underworld: Awakening.

She also added in her website, "Recently I saw Theo James’ screen test with Shailene Woodley, and I was sure within seconds: this was ‘Four,’ no question. Theo is able to capture ‘Four’s’ authority and strength, as well as his depth and sensitivity. He is a perfect match for Shailene’s incredibly strong presence as Tris. I’m thrilled!"

During our exhaustive search to find Hazel Grace Lancaster, I saw some stunning auditions by today’s finest young actresses.

I can’t wait for the rest of the world to see what I have.
