Theo James Joins 'Divergent' as Four!

Downton Abbey‘s Theo James has just landed the role of Four in the upcoming highly anticipated flick Divergent!

The 28-year-old actor will star opposite Shailene Woodley in the book-to-big screen adaption of Veronica Roth‘s young adult novel.

Theo is not only an incredibly talented actor, he is also who we envisioned as Four when reading Veronica’s novel which has taken the world by storm,” Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger, Lionsgate co-chairmen said in a statement. “As we continue to develop the film, the studio remains committed to providing fans with a movie adaptation that stays as true to the book as possible and we are confident that we have done so with our selection of Shailene and Theo in the leading roles.”

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Theo James as Four in Divergent???

Both roles are terribly miscast. I hope producers realise that the book fandom is incredibly disappointed by this. James is not Four. And I thought they did a terrible job with Twilight. This is worse.

Not happy at all with this casting, he looks too old for playing Four and nothing like I imagined. They could have chosen someone much better.

Poor Mr. Pamuk!

I can see him as Four but Shailene is poor casting. Theo is good on Golden Boy

Happy for this casting, Theo looks good and so Glad the role don’t went to Alex Pettyfer. When I read the rumor that him was playing four I was so mad as this Alex guy is a mediocre actor, apart for his reputation of being a douche.

Love me some Golden Boy!

they couldn’t get anyone more older than Theo James, he is nothing like Tobias and way way older to be opposite Shailane or other cast. #SoDisappointed :(

The casting for this movie is seriously terrible. I hope the movie flops so they don’t get a chance to ruin the entire series!

Should have been Jeremy Irvine….
Or other actor mmm i don’t know MORE YOUNG! he’s too old for the role but it’s fine at least Alex Pettyfer has been not cast like ‘Four’ (he was not Tobias) Well seems like the adaptations from any books has to be changed because this is it what are they doing here and in other proyects, they change the caracteres or part of the history.
We will have to see how it works the movie.
Hope that will not be completely awful.

Lets just keep our opinions for after the movie. To me he looks okay. Not what i pictured as Four but i think he can pull it off.

I must be the only one who hasn’t heard of this book/movie. Looks too much like “The Hunger Games”.

he has greek ancestry; that’s how he could look semi turkish in Downton. The books are slightly better written than expected but yes another hunger-games type series…and HG weren’t that good to begin with.
