    Good god she needs some injections in those wrinkles.

    Definitely not how I pictured Evelyn…this ought to be interesting. The casting is taking an interesting turn–although, adding the acting talents of Octavia Spencer and Naomi Watts can’t hurt.

    @troll: I think she’s seen her bestie Nicole Kidman enough times to know that you’d have to be an idiot to touch that stuff. Troll, indeed.

    @Alaia: Exactly right! Besides she looks beautiful in my opinion :)

  • hmmmm

    interesting casting for Four’s mother

  • WOW

    “Evelyn is described as being middle-aged with curly black hair, olive skin, a stern/angular features, hooked nose, strong jaw, spare upper lip, stick-out ears, and dark eyes that look almost black. ” I heard a report that a white actor got cast as Uriah too. I have no problem with what color people are, but I’m concerned as to why they’re changing the appearance of these characters? When you read a book, the characters feel very real to you and you have a vision of the story that the Divergent producers claimed to take seriously. The books are very diverse and I feel like the movies aren’t…with the exception of Maggie and Zoe.
