BUT, BUT, BUT…
What about Evan Peters??? Is he completely out? Or is he just not Four material?!
While we have ourselves a tear about that, new reports suggestAlex Pettyfer is ready for a Divergent lifestyle! (F-f-finally! LOL!)
But srsly, I Am Number Four's perfect ten is looking to fill the lead role of Four in the upcoming sci-fi trilogy.
Now, if you're a young actor in this town, this is most definitely the role you are vying for. The flick, in the genre of Twilight and Hunger Games, is poised to be the next big franchise for young and fantasy audiences.
The best-seller based flick could make him an even bigger star, a hope shared by Shailene Woodley, who recently was revealed to be the frontrunner for the female lead, Tris.
It looks like the Magic Mike star will really have to bring some of that magic to his test if he wants to beat the stiff competition!
Also in the running are Jeremy Irvine from War Horse and X-Men: First Class's Lucas Till, who is actually coming in for his second test this week!
Well, we'd tell Alex to break a leg- but those gams are too good to waste!
P.S. — Can we just express AGAIN how excited we are for this?! It's like, a really big deal!!!
