He’s no Kate Winslet, but Romeo Miller (known to many as Lil’ Romeo) revealed via Twitter today that he’s having a meeting for a role in the Divergent movie.
Wrote the rapper on Twitter:
Big day! Going in for the movie DIVERGENT! I live for moments like this #dauntless mind frame.

His hashtag may suggest he’s attempting to join the cast as someone in the Dauntless faction. A note posted to his Instagram offers a little more background info:
“10 months ago Mike Pasternak told me about this project “Divergent”. Little did he know that I was a big fan of the book already! This day – TODAY – I am going in to a meeting for this amazing project! Must say out of evertyhing I’ve accomplished, that this day – TODAY I am the most excited. Always dream big and be FEARLESS! #dauntless”
One possible opening for Miller may be Uriah, who is described as tall and handsome in the books.
Filming for the Divergent movie is set to begin in just two months. Despite this, the only confirmed actress so far is Shailene Woodley, who will star as Tris.
Summit did confirm in recent weeks that Kate Winslet is in talks for a role.
An open casting call is being held in Chicago Saturday, February 9. Divergent opens March 21, 2014.
Who do you think Miller could be playing? A quick check of his film history shows that, if he gets the role, it’d be his biggest film to date.
