Divergent, as you may recall, is the popular and Hunger Games–y YA series by Veronica Roth, and Theo James (of Golden Boy) is also known by the name of Mr. Pamuk, the incredibly handsome Turkish diplomat who died in Mary’s bed on Downton Abbey. James just joined the Divergent movie as Four, the male lead and the eventual love interest of Shailene Woodley’s Beatrice; Aaron Eckhart has also been offered a role. Okay, and now you are allowed to start squealing with delight. Mr. Pamuk in a YA franchise! Mr. Pamuk, alive. It is a special day.
