Fans of Teen Wolf were shocked earlier this month when lead star Colton Haynes announced he was leaving MTV’s hit show. Then this week the actor followed Divergent author Veronica Roth on Twitter and teased upcoming good news – could he be joining the Divergent movie cast?

The actor had tweeted the following “great news” suggesting he had been cast in something:

The news of Haynes’ leaving Teen Wolf had “shocked” even the show’s executive producer who added he was “confused.” If we were to make guesses, this opportunity for Haynes arose and had a tight shooting scheduled which conflicted with Teen Wolf.

While still not confirmed, the puzzle pieces are interesting. Last week actor Alexander Ludwig tweeted that he had had a meeting to play Four, who we suspect Haynes is currently up for.

The Divergent book follows Tris, who lives in a future Chicago that is separated in five factions in order to stabilize society. At age 16 each citizen must choose a permanent faction. For Tris things don’t go as planned and she has to survive an aggressive and physically demanding initiation. Beatrice Prior must uncover her true hidden strengths and risk her family, her newfound love, and her very own life to defuse a mysterious conspiracy which could change the balance of power forever. The character of Four is Tris’ love interest who she meets in the Dauntless faction.

Divergent hits theaters March 21, 2014. Would Haynes be a good choice for the role of Four?

Thanks to @DivergentNation for the investigative reporting.

    Good to hear! I need him back on my television screen, he’s too gorgeous to keep away from it for too long.

    I think he’s Four. I looks the part most defiantly. Didn’t the book say he had big lips?

    I don’t necessarily see him as Four he could easily be casted as Tris’ nemesis whose name currently escapes me.

      Peter, and I agree

        Ah yeah Peter, that guy is such a dick. Colton reminds me in many ways of Paul Wesley who played the bad boys earlier in his career so I could definitely see him as Peter the psycho less so as Four. If the writing/directing team do their job Peter would easily have similar amounts of screen time to Four.

          I only disliked this because I think that Colton would be a great Four.

        that’s what i was thinking too

  • http://twitter.com/AntaraC Antara Chowdhury

    I’d very much rather he get the part than Alexander Ludwig.

  • Allison

    He would be a perfect Four. Omigosh this would totally make up for him leaving TW. Well, not totally, but close.

  • Alex

    Wtf Veronica?
    Why do you hate your own book?

    • d3erudite

      I’m thinking that as well.

      • TheOneAndOnlyCliche

        Veronica isn’t the one who casts the movie. Authors rarely have a hand in the casting.

  • Rosie

    Way better than Alexander, WAY BETTER!!!

    • d3erudite

      I disagree. I’ve seen him in Teen Wolf and I think he would be terrible. However, I think he’d be a good Peter.

      • anya

        Peter, but not Four, :)

  • Jess

    Well, I’ve only seen Alexander Ludwig act in THG, so it’s hard to judge. Looks-wise, I think Haynes looks more like Tobias than Ludwig. So far, I’m not really impressed with any of the actors/actresses who might be involved :S

  • http://twitter.com/akacj7 Caroline J.

    to be fair, i never really had a strong visual sense of what Four looked like, so while it’s easy to pick out someone who i don’t think fits (alex ludwig, sorry bro), its almost impossible for me to pick who does/would.

  • Jessica

    I like Colton, but Alexander is the better actor and I think he deserves the role more. It would have been a stupid move though, to leave Teen Wolf if this wasn’t a sure thing.

  • avey

    Not him, please. please please. Well, if he’s the one. There’s nothing much to say about it,

  • avey

    He could be Peter of much less, Eric. Swear, but not Four. NOOOO Please,

  • Alicia

    Does anyone remember way back in the day when he was rumored to be up for the role of Edward? He was just some random model guy back then. But yeah, I would actually love to see him as Four.

  • Kelly

    He looks way more like four than Ludwig does.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cari.shoemaker Cari Shoemaker

    I very much would also like him to get the part more than Ludwig, for many many reasons, but manly he looks more the role, and has the tough guy feel. When I look at Ludwig I just think HG and that’s not what you want when you’re trying to make it big with a new film! Please oh Please pick Haynes!

    He should play Peter not Four. I still think Brenton Thwaites should play Four.
