After a very long time of no news about the movie adaptation of "The Fault in Our Stars," Variety has finally broke the silence with the rumor of having five actors to test for the role of the male lead Augustus Waters. Are you excited to know?
Variety has reported that Brenton Thwaites, Nat Wolff, Nick Robinson, Noah Silver and Ansel Elgort will test for the role of Augustus Waters this weekend. Let's get to know more about these five potential actors.
NOTE: These are just rumors, there's a big chance that one of them may get the part or not. We don't know we get to have more casting rumorsabout Augustus to come.
Brandon Thwaites has been in the mix of playing Four in another young adult novel called Divergent, where Shailene Woodley (who happens to play Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars), is the female lead Tris. Brandon is an Australian actor who was part of some TV series like SLiDE and Home and Away. He will soon be seen as the Young Prince opposite Elle Fanning and Angela Jolie in Maleficent.
You've seen Nat in the comedy Admission, starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. He's also one of those actors who were fan cast of being Augustus.
Nick was in the ABC TV program Melissa & Joey as Ryder Scanlon. He will soon be seen as Joy Toy in a coming-of-age movie about three kids who ran away from home.
There's nothing much info about Nick Silver expect he plays Benito Sforza in The Borgias and he will be the titular character Jamie Marks Is Dead with Morgan Freeman.
Ansel is currently working with our leading lady Shailene Woodley in Divergent (based in Veronica Roth's book). He plays Tris' (Shailene Woodley) brother Caleb. It might be a little comfortable for Ansel to be working again with Shailene in TFiOS if he will be chosen.
So who do you think will get cast? Do you like any of them?
