The Hunger Games actor Alexander Ludwig may be in contention for the role of Four in Divergent, if a tweet he deleted is any indication.

“Screen testing for Divergent today,” the tweet simply read when it was sent out this afternoon. The tweet was deleted a short time later.

UPDATE: Ludwig has confirmed via Twitter that he will not play Four, saying it’s too close to The Hunger Games.

Though he did not say what role it is for, one obvious guess is Four. The role has still not been cast by producers even though it’s scheduled to begin filming in Chicago next month.

The search for the actor to play Four has been a long one. Since October (and maybe longer) the studio has been screen testing actors including Lucas Till, Jeremy Irvine, Alex Pettyfer, Luke Bracey, Brenton Thwaites, and Jack Reynor.

Ludwig has been interested in the role of Four since October when he had said he had meetings about the idea. The fact that they’re revisiting him means they could still be far from narrowing in on a choice.

Then again, Ludwig could be screen testing for a different role entirely. Shailene Woodley (who’ll play Tris) and Kate Winslet are the only two actresses confirmed so far.

Woodley herself has been involved in the Four auditioning process because they need to find someone who works with her on screen. Earlier this year she commented on the search: “You cannot walk in that room in pretty little boots and pretend you’re a man. I’m sorry. You need to walk in there, and you need to not have muscles that look good and not actually work. There have been a few guys that have this power about them. It’s a natural masculine power that some people have and some people don’t.”

Ludwig played Cato in The Hunger Games movie. We reached out to his agent who has not yet returned a request for comment.

Thanks, Fangirlish.

    Hope not, I think he will be Eric, who is supposed to be blonde, or maybe Peter

    NONONNONNNONONONONO!!! Absolutely hope it is not Four, he is not Four, they are totally going to ruin this movie, especially if Shailene Woodley is going to play Tris.

      Calm down. Nothing is confirmed yet and fandom always seems to freak out over casting when in the end it usually works out. Look at The Hunger Games.

  • Kathleen

    PLEASE not Four, anyone but Four. Peter, Caleb, Will, Edward, Al … just please not Four.

  • Nah

    Nah, can’t be Four, Shailene Woodley is in New York filming Spider-Man today. They probably already have Four and are casting the other characters. Remember he wanted to be Peeta but ended up as Cato. Probably the same situation here.

      crossing my fingers this logic is close to the truth.

  • Kristina

    Four, or ERIC. If he does play Eric, that may type-cast him as the ‘surly intense guy’ for every teen dystopia in the next 5-10 years.

    • Jessica

      Oh, I hope that doesn’t happen. He’s too talented of an actor to be stuck in one role in one genre. I mean, I get that he wants these big roles, but I would love to see him in some indies. He’s capable of amazing stuff.

    I’m not sure why, but I can picture him as a Caleb.

    • Danny Ruiz

      Yea he could be a good Caleb but thats not gona happen. I think they chose a better Caleb. Maybe Peter? Edward? Or even Al!

      • http://www.facebook.com/cmoorepats Cameron Moore

        Oh Al would be a good one for him, I didn’t even think of Al.

        • Danny Ruiz

          Well he isn’t Al. lol I guess he wont have a role in Divergent! We’ll have to wait and see!

    I’d prefer if he was Eric too… although I may just be subconsciously typecasting him because his Cato role.

  • bethanny23

    I seriously hope he will not be four..

    I think it’s funny that when he was announced as Cato in The Hunger Games, I couldn’t see him as the bad guy at all. Now, after seeing The Hunger Games, I can’t picture him as anything other than the bad guy.

  • 7Starrchasers

    No I see him as Peter!

  • Bianca

    What about Will?

  • Colin

    Why on earth can’t they just announce Brenton Thwaites’ winning the role of Four??? It would make me so happy, and he won the Hypable poll for crying out loud!!! That means everything, right?? :)

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

    i’m thinking more Peter. we know he’d be good at it after Cato. poor kid, getting typecast like that, but i’m a little bit over alexander ludwig anyway, not gonna lie.

    He looks like Peter or Edward to me. Or even Caleb, but Caleb’s cast now.

  • http://twitter.com/Super_Lulu1 Lupita

    I can only picture his as Peter

  • mtlss

    I think Peter. I love Josh so much, but Alexander would’ve been good as Peeta.

  • Tiero22

    yeah I don’t want him to be typecast. I would like to see him as Will and Brenton Thwaites as Four. Also I would like to see Cam Gigandet as Eric.

  • http://twitter.com/theaterandi Adele Ivy

    He probably would make a good Al. It would be a different role for him. Maybe, or am I crazy?

  • http://twitter.com/nikoladiana Niki

    Alexander Ludwig is not Four. Not in any angle.

  • Mary

    No,no,no he’s not a good four. He makes a better Peter. Drew Roy should play four.

  • FourTris Will

    I bet he is up for Will, I would hate him as Four!
