Actor Nat Wolff says he’s up for a role in The Fault in Our Stars movie.
Those who’ve been following the production closely know that Wolff was one of many actors who was up for the lead male role as Gus. The part eventually went to Ansel Elgort.
“It was really great. The script is really great,” Wolff said about auditioning for Gus. But the second part of his comment was more interesting. “Josh Boone, who did ‘Stuck in Love,’ is directing the movie, and I think I might—it’s still in negotiations—but I might be playing another role in the movie. [We’re] still figuring it out. I’d love to be a part of it, just to work with Josh, and it’s a cool story.”
The obvious choice for Wolff would be Isaac, the cancer patient who lost both of his eyes and is Gus’ best friend.
Wolff starred in Boone’s Stuck in Love which is how he probably auditioned for Gus in the first place. We’re glad to see that Boone and producer Wyck Godfrey are still trying to have him be a part in The Fault in Our Stars. We really liked him in the role of Rusty, brother of Samantha (Lily Collins) and son of William (Greg Kinnear). Stuck in Love hits United States theaters July 5.
The Fault in Our Stars movie will begin shooting this August. The highly-anticipated adaptation of John Green’s beloved novel stars Elgort as Gus and Shailene Woodley as Tris. The two are currently shooting another book to film, Divergent by Veronica Roth, in Chicago.
Thanks, Hollywood Crush.
