Divergent Movie Cast News: Divergent Character Casting Round Up (Tori, Christina, Caleb, Eric, Four, Jeanine, Edwardm AL, Will, and Tris)



If you are anything like me then you are scratching your head right now trying, in vain maybe, to remember
who exactly these people are supposed to be. No worries though, I shall tell you exactly who these people are supposed to be portraying with a little help from Divergent Wiki.


Maggie G as "Tori"

She is Dauntless all right...
Maggie Q: Best known for Nikita.

Tori: She was the one who oversaw and administered Tris' aptitude test, discovering and telling her that she was a Divergent and the dangers that came with being one.

Zoe Kravitz as Christina

I can totally see this girl as Christina.
Zoe Kravitz: was in X-Men First Class (an AWESOME movie)

Christina: She transferred to Dauntless from Candor, and was Tris' first and best enemy during her initiation into Dauntless. She was first introduced when she helped Tris onto the Train after the Choosing Ceremony. Christina befriends Tris and becomes a vital part in the beginning of Tris' new life in Dauntless.

Ansel Elgort as Caleb

Sure, I don't care much about Caleb anyhow.
Ansel Elgort: NEWBIE!

Caleb: The older brother of Beatrice Prior and the son of Andrew and Natalie Prior.This secret persona is ultimately revealed on the day of his Choosing Ceremony, where he chooses Erudite as his faction. Before the Choosing Ceremon, Caleb subtly hints to his sister, Beatrice, that she has the option to transfer if she is having the same conflicting feelings as him. On the day of choosing, he and Beatrice chose to abandon their family for different factions. He then becomes an Erudite.


Jai Courtney as Eric

This guy seems a little old to play Eric... Eric is supposed to be 18, this guy looks 30...
Jai Courtney: from Spartacus

Eric: A Dauntless leader who was an Erudite transfer. Eric became Four's nemesis during their initiation as Four finished first in their class, and Eric was second; he has hated Four ever since. Eric is harsh on the initiates during their training, even going so far as to force Christina to hang over the Chasm for five minutes as punishment for surrendering in a fight.


Theo James as Four

Hotness^2. Seriously, you can be my Tobias any day...
Theo James: was in Underworld: Awakening

Tobias/Four: Tobias Eaton, more prominently known as Four, is one of the main characters in Divergent and Insurgent and is the son of Evelyn and Marcus Eaton. Alongside Lauren (instructor of Dauntless-born initiates), he is the instructor of the transfer initiates. He is the boyfriend of Beatrice "Tris" Prior later on in the book.


Kate Winslet as Jeanine

Oh, this is BOUND to be good, she is going to kick ass.
Kate Winslet: Titanic, anyone?

Jeanine: Jeanine is the sole representative of Erudite in the government council effectively making her the most powerful Erudite member. She makes many articles based off lies about Abnegation in order to smear bad faith towards the faction. This tactic would lead to people doubting whether Abnegation is actually selfless but rather a faction hoarding greed for themselves. She, along with Eric, began the second war.


Ben Lamb as Edward
couldn't find a better picture...

Edward: The night after the rankings were posted, Edward was stabbed in the eye with a butter knife.

Yes, we kind of remember this guy.

Ben Lloyd-Hughes as Will

Aw, Will... You look great, yet a little bit old?
Ben Lloyd-Hughes's IMDB

Will: Will was a transfer from Erudite. He had memorized a map of the city for fun, and memorized the manifestos of all of the different factions. During initiation, he met Tris, Christina, and Al, mainly because he wasn't friends with Edward and Myra and didn't want to be a third wheel to the couple. These four constantly fought against Peter, Drew and Molly.

Christian Madsen as AL

All these actors seem a bit old for their parts... :/
AL is 16...
AL: Al is a kind-hearted boy who doesn't like the idea of hurting people. He transferred to Dauntless because he admired their bravery. His parents' admiration for the Dauntless also influenced his decision.

Shailene Woodley as Tris


Shailene Woodley: Best known for The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Tris: Beatrice "Tris" Prior is the main protagonist and narrator of the Divergent series. She is a strong-willed sixteen-year-old girl who hates showing weakness. Though Tris was born in the faction Abnegation, she eventually transferred to Dauntless and must face the fact that she is Divergent. When she arrived in her new faction, she opted for a change of name to go by. She decided to use Tris as a nickname for Beatrice, hoping for a fresh start in a new faction.

More than a few of these actors seem a bit too old for the part, but I guess make up does wonders? Hopefully? Still, I like most of them, so I am hoping for the best!
