It is currently rumored that Alex Pettyfer has joined the cast of ‘Divergent,’ as Dauntless leader ‘Four,’ according to Sugar Scape. Multiple sources are picking up the news, however there is no official press release confirmation yet. We’ll keep you all posted, there is a possibility this could be a false alarm, or someone making up a shocking headline to receive traffic. I originally rushed to get this up since I thought it was confirmed judging from the reactions on my Twitter news feed, and I didn’t want to delay posting. My mistake, apologies!
As I’m sure many will say, we can’t deny his ability to visually play the character (he’s good looking, nobody can deny that), but after seeing him in I Am Number Four and Beastly I’m still not convinced about his acting ability. Alex Pettyfer would join Shailene Woodley as Tris in the possible first installment of a franchise based on Veronica Roth’s novels, directed by Neil Burger of Limitless.
