Ansel Elgort: Augustus Waters in 'Fault in Our Stars' Movie!

Ansel Elgort has been offered the role of Augustus Waters in the highly anticipated film The Fault in Our Stars, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The 19-year-old actor will star opposite Shailene Woodley, who he is working with right now on the film Divergent.

Ansel is whip-smart and uber-charismatic and everything I dreamed for Augustus Waters,” the novel’s author John Green told EW. “I am by nature a cautious pessimist, but I’ll just say it: Now that we have Shailene and Ansel, I am completely, unreservedly psyched about this movie.”

Ansel Elgort is the epitome of the boy John Green brought to life so vividly in his novel and he truly embodies the character traits we admire so much about Gus,” director Josh Boone added. “His humor, sensitivity, honesty and confidence floored us. Watching him with Shailene was like seeing the film for the first time. Hearing then say okay to each other was incredibly moving. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have found our Gus.”
