The Hunt for Four Continues: Who Has Read with Shailene Woodley for Chemistry?

Alright, Divergent Nation it looks like the search for our Four is heating up! Deadline is reporting that Summit Entertainment recently held “chemistry” readings with our Tris, Shailene Woodley. Alexander Ludwig, who has tweeted about his prior meeting with Divergent producers, and Colton Haynes, who was rumored to be up for the role, are notably absent. Our personal pick of Colton Haynes and/or Matt Dallas were not on the list so we’re a little bummed about that, but still holding out hope! So who is possibly in the running to be Tobias Eaton?

Summit Entertainment is bearing down on the male lead in Divergent, the adaptation of the Neil Burger-directed adaptation of the Veronica Roth novel that will star Shailene Woodley. She’s the next hot gal after a breakout performance in The Descendants, followed by scoring the Mary Jane role in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel. I’m told that Summit held Divergent “chemistry” readings yesterday that paired Woodley with four young actors: Luke Bracey, Brenton Thwaites, Lucas Till and Jack Reynor.

Lucas Till is certainly the more experienced actor out of this group, but we’ve always pictured him more as Will. Out of the four names listed here, Brandon Thwaites is certainly more suitable as far as his appearance. Just in our opinion.

But keep in mind that none of this is definitive or confirmed. In fact, as we searched through IMDB, I found that Brandon Thwaites is really Brenton Thwaites according to pictures so make of that what you will about the accuracy of this news. 🙂

  1. Well… I kind see why they picked Branton Thwaites, Luke Bracey and Jack Reynor, but I’m not a fan of Lucas Till. He looks really boyish, which does Branton Thwaites too but he mixed raced.. I’m really conflited right now. I can kinda see it but at the same time I can’t… you know what I mean? Luke Bracey is good but he looks really bulky and big (what I like, but I don’t know if four is that huge) and I don’t know anything about Jack Reynor, but I don’t mind, he looks nomral which it good, i think… I’m still confused what to think about it!

  2. I actually have a new theory about these guys, I can see all of them in the movie…Luke Bracey as Al, Brandon Thwaites as Uriah, Lucas Till as Will and Jack Reynor as Four…What do you guys think??

  3. I still have hope for Colton Haynes. He’s how I imagine Four. He looks older than woodley, can have the severe/strict side and the sensitive/vulnerable one. Dear God make him our Four…None of these actors fit the role…

    • i completely agree colton haynes wold be perfect hes the perfect four! 😉

  4. Brandon Thwaites, definitely. Not only is ache a good actor, but he looks the part, also. In book two, Tris said Tobias wasn’t that big strong or bulky. Perfect. All of the others are, well, pretty good, but too “pretty” for the image of Four. Brandon is for sure the best choice out of all four. (Ironic number, huh?)

    • I definitallty agree! Lots of people say he is too small and slim for the part of Four, but Trisnsays that he is pretty small. He is a good actour, and more importantly, better than the other three. I don’t see how Colton would fit the part. Maybe it’s just my opinion, (and I can see it is yours too,) but he’s just not… Tobias enough.
