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.”

    I’ve just stopped watching movies based on books. After they ruined The hunger games and the entire Harry potter series (the first two was some what OK) I just prefer to have the good memory and of the story from the book itself.

    I don’t really think he’s that bad of a choice? let’s face it, no one is ever going to look like the Gus you imagined reading the book. it was the same way with almost every movie adaptation of any novel. to be fair, he does basically fit the physical description (“long and leanly muscular” ahem), and with a haircut and maybe a bit of dye he’d fit perfectly. all I’m saying is you all need to stop judging the actors so heavily before you’ve even seen them act the role.

    Well, if you insist John Green. I still think that Grant Gustin would have made a perfect Augustus.

    Wrongest decision ever. I don’t think Shailene fits, neither Ansel Egort.
    They should’ve pick Joshua Anthony Brand, although he’s just a model, or Dylan O’Brien! There’s also a mexican guy who fits for Augustus, his name is Jos Canela (look him up in twitter). And for Hazel Grace, I think Sami Gayle could have fit… she has the hair, the round face, and she’s pretty young, like Hazel, and Shailene looks older than a 16 year old. She’s really beautiful, but I don’t imagine her as Hazel. Sorry.

    Urbah Says:

    He looks nothing like the HOT Augustus we all imagined!!

    He looks more like Hazel’s non existent baby brother.

    Im sorry,but I am not happy with this. :/

    Why is everyone on here suggesting like, freaking models because they look like the characters? Are you kidding me? It’s not about it they ‘look’ like the characters, it’s about if they can play them. A model can’t act. A random guy you saw once can’t act. These are professional, famous actors and actresses and I’m sure they will do a brilliant job. John Green seems to think they are perfect, and he created these characters, he knows EXACTLY how they are played and who they really are. Stop complaining about looks and wait until you can give it a proper chance. They won’t look the same ffs.

    I DONT KNOW Says:

    NONONONONO. I’m being optimistic about Austus’ casting, because when Robert Pattinson was casted as Edward, everyone hated it but look at him now.. Hazel is completly wrong though, and although he’s not an actor, i’d have preferred Joshua Brand as Augustus (Google him)
