After we learned this morning that he was in talks for a role in Divergent, actor Miles Teller revealed on Twitter this afternoon that he will play Peter.
Thanks to the magic of hashtags, his “#TeamPeter” inclusion would suggest he will play the character that’s an enemy of Tris and transfers from Candor to Dauntless at the beginning of the story.

Teller’s other film credits include the recently released 21 & Over, Project X, and Footloose. He will be seen later this year in The Spectacular Now.
It has been a very busy week for Divergent casting news. In the past few days alone we’ve learned that Theo James will play Four, Kate Winslet will play Jeanine, Jai Courtney will play Eric, Maggie Q will play Tori, Zoe Kravitz will play Christina, and Ansel Elgort will play Caleb.
The Divergent trilogy was written by Veronica Roth, and book three is due out this October. The film will be directed by Neil Berger and the script was penned by Evan Daughtery and Vanessa Taylor. Filming begins in Chicago next month and will open in theaters March 21, 2014.
