Peachy News: Divergent Cast Update

Unless you have been living under a rock lately, you should know by now that Divergent, written by Veronica Roth, is being made into a movie!! So most of you may already know who has been casted to play Tris' character, Shailene Woodley, and Four's character, Alexander Ludwig (I am not so sure about this one)...


...but now it is made clear who will be playing Tori, Christina and Caleb. It has recently been announced by Veronica Roth that Maggie Q, (aka Margaret Denise Quigley) who is also seen in Nikita and Mission: Impossible III, will be playing tatoo-crazed Tori! Zoe Kravitz, the daughter of Lenny Kravits, who is also seen in X-Men: First Class, will be playing Christina. And Ansel Elgort, who will also be starring in the upcoming horror movie Carrie, will be playing Caleb. See pictures below (from left to right: Tris, Four, Tori, Christina, and Caleb)

I am really not sure about Four... to be brutally honest I pictured Four as a very Bold, confident and handsome character and unfortunately I do not see this in Alexander Ludwig. I also imagined Tori to be way more 'brute' looking... I feel like Maggie Q is way too pretty for the role ;)

What do you guys think about the casting so far? Is this how you portrayed the characters in your mind while you were reading the book(s)?

Let me know in the comments below!

Check out my review of Divergent and Insurgent!

  4. Shailene Woodley is okay. But I hope she's short and skinny like Tris. I'm not sure about Alexander. Doesn't look like Four to me.

    Thanks for the update, blog buddy. Can't wait to see the movie.:)

    1. True! Tris needs to be short and skinny and needs a big nose! I think this Shailene is a bit too pretty for Tris. I also heard she wasn't that skilled in acting :S

  5. I didn't know Four was already casted! Are you a hundred percent sure Alexander Ludwig is Four? Really? No offense to the guy but his look is probably the farthest you can get from what I imagined Four would look like.

    1. From what I heard and read it was confirmed, but then again you never really know until the cast list is up on official sites with the complete cast on it! Perhaps we can still pray that it will be another actor last minute ;)
