    Casting rumors for Divergent are continuing to surface as hype around the book turned movie continues to grow! And while The Secret Life's Shailene Woodley has already signed on to play the lead role of Tris in the adaptation of the Veronica Roth novel --- fans are eagerly waiting to hear who will be taking on the rest of the book's characters. Now as we previously reported, there a few actors in the running to play Tobias "Four" Eaton, Tris's instructor and love interest. That's right --- Luke Bracey, Lucas Till, Brenton Thwaites, and Jack Reynor have all already participated in a chemistry test alongside Shailene to see who would be the best fit for the role. But not so fast --- that still leaves us looking for our Peter, Eric, Christina, and of course, Tris's brother Caleb! And while no official casting news surrounding these roles has been released --- there are still some names being thrown around so here's your unofficial casting rundown. For Peter, the film's antagonist, some potential names popping up are Pretty Little Liars' Brant Daughtery, 21 Jump Street's Dave Franco, and Magic Mike's Alex Pettyfer. Now keep in mind that the character of Peter is described as tall, good-looking, with dark, shiny hair --- and despite being extremely cruel and violent, he's also described as innocent and kind looking. And for Eric, Four's foe who is also described as excessively violent, Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley, Prince Caspian's Ben Barnes, and Secret Circle's Thomas Dekker are just a few guys we could picture rocking long, dark, greasy hair and a bunch of piercings. Next up we have Uriah, one of Tris's good friends who is of middle eastern descent and is described as tall and handsome with brown skin and dark eyes. For this role we could definitely see someone like Victorious's Avan Jogia or Luke Pasqualino from Skins being an awesome fit but we think David Henrie from Wizards of Waverly Place is another great candidate for the role. And to play Christina, who Tris describes as a brave, thoughtful, witty, and somewhat kind person --- we think Revenge's Ashley Madekwe, X-Men's Zoe Kravitz, or even Jane By Design's Meagan Tandy would all do the role justice, especially considering Christina's physical description includes dark skin, long slender legs, and short black hair. And last but not least --- we're sure that Perks star Logan Lerman, Wizards' Gregg Sulkin, X-Men's Nick Hoult, or even Degrassi's Landon Liboiron would be perfect fits for Caleb, brother of Tris, who is described as having dark hair, a hooked nose, green eyes, and dimpled cheeks.
