Lucas Till, Jeremy Irvine, Alex Pettyfer in line for Four

According to our very good friends over at Divergent Lexicon, Variety is staking the race for Four to three actors, all of whom come with considerable pedigree: Lucas Till, Jeremy Irvine, and Alex Pettyfer.

As Divergent Lexicon reports:

The hunt for our Four is beginning to narrow down according to reports from Variety. Lucas Till, Alex Pettyfer, and Jeremy Irvine are reportedly in the running to play the coveted role of Tobias “Four” Eaton.

Summit is getting closer to finding its male lead for “Divergent” opposite Shailene Woodley, considered one of the more sought-after roles for a young actor.

Sources tell Variety that Lucas Till, Jeremy Irvine and Alex Pettyfer will test for the role later this week. Summit previously tested Till, Brenton Thwaites, Luke Bracey and Jack Reynor in November.

Veronica Roth’s young-adult novel, acquired by Summit in March 2011, is the first of a planned trilogy. The story has a “Hunger Games”-like teen-on-teen violence in a futuristic setting and follows 16-year-old Beatrice Prior, who Woodley is set to play.

Neil Burger will helm with Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher producing through their Red Wagon banner. Evan Daugherty will pen the script.

Lucas Till is most known for his work in X-Men, in addition to appearing in Taylor Swift’s award-winning “You Belong With Me” video. Jeremy Irvine played the lead character in Stephen Spielberg’s War Horse, and Alex Pettyfer has played several bigtime roles, most notably in Stephen Soderbergh’s Magic Mike.

Hollywood Crush Fancasts Four

Now that we’ve got our Tris in the form of Shailene Woodley, everyone is wondering who will play Four!

Alexander Ludwig has met with producer Doug Wyck about the role, however these type of meetings are common in Hollywood and usually happen with multiple actors before auditions even begin, so nothing is set in stone.

In the meantime, MTV Hollywood Crush is naming their picks for Four, some of which even factor in the fact that Four is actually a mixed race character nicely!

Jesse Williams
Okay, we’ll admit it: At 31, Jesse may be a teensy bit old at this point to pass as an 18-year-old onscreen…but with the role of Four calling for dark hair, piercing blue eyes and a certain gravitas, he’s certainly packing a lot of, um, qualifications.

Matthew Lewis
After years of playing the overlooked, doofy Neville Longbottom in the “Harry Potter” franchise, Matthew is perfectly positioned to step into the spotlight as the star of the “Divergent” adaptation. And considering that he’s become a bona fide hunk of late, all he’d need for this one is an American accent.

Diego Boneta
From bit parts in “Pretty Little Liars” to his big breakout in “Rock of Ages,” Diego has been an impressive new presence in Hollywood of late; we like him so much, we even added him to the cast of our new show, “Underemployed.” But hey, if Hollywood wants him to ride the Dauntless train, we’d offer him a ride to the station.

Funny Divergent Meme!

As you all know, the one thing Divergent doesn’t seem to have that almost every other YA book series does is a love triangle … or so we thought!

Which one should she choose?? Are you Team Four or Team Tobias?

The Divergent Pronunciation Guide

Veronica Roth has heard some pretty funky pronunciations of Divergent characters and factions over the past year, so she literally spelled it all out for us in her latest blog!

Characters
 Tris: TRIH-ss (As opposed to “treece” or “tryce,” both of which I’ve heard.)
Tobias: Tuh-BYE-us
Uriah: Yer-EYE-uh
Jeanine: Juh-NEEN

Factions
Divergent: Die-ver-jen-t
Abnegation: Ab-neg-ay-shun
Amity: Am-it-ee
Candor: Can-der
Dauntless: Dawn-t-less
And the big one:
Erudite: Air-yoo-dyte

Were you pronouncing any of these incorrectly before Veronica cleared it up?

Yep, here’s a little image I found on Tumblr today as I was noticing some other posts from people who were pleasantly surprised with a delivery of their Insurgent order, which they obviously received early.  Lucky!  Don’t worry, I’ll be just as enthralled as all of you when I start reading mine tomorrow.  Enjoy!
