Alex Pettyfer: Tobias in 'Divergent'?

Alex Pettyfer hits up the Richard James show during the London Collections: MEN AW13 held at Cafe Royal on Tuesday afternoon (January 8) in London.

The 22-year-old actor is in the running for the lead role in Divergent, Variety is reporting. He’s testing with star Shailene Woodley along with Lucas Till and Jeremy Irvine.

Luke Bracey, Brenton Thwaites, and Jack Reynor were also previously brought in for chemistry testing with Shailene.

Written by Veronica Roth, “Divergent” follows Beatrice Prior (Tris), who leaves her faction to join a rival one, but during the violent initiation she falls in love with a young man and they try to find their place in this rough world.

Tobias is described as “tall and has short dark hair and beautiful deep blue eyes. He is two years older than Tris and originally came from the same faction as she did, Abnegation. He ran from Abnegation into Dauntless to escape his physically abusive father, Marcus. He protects Tris from the others both by defending her when she is attacked and by keeping their romance private.”

    Joshua bowman is how I imagined four. All the people they’ve considered don’t seem to fit four at all, and I don’t know how I feel about shailene woodley yet…

    Please no! He so doesn’t look like Tobias! Why do people want him to play every possible character in every movie ever? Like, can you not? I swear, I won’t watch that fucking film if he’s chosen.
