Who Has ‘Divergent’ Chemistry With Shailene Woodley?

Mike Fleming

Summit Entertainment is bearing down on the male lead in Divergent, the adaptation of the Neil Burger-directed adaptation of the Veronica Roth novel that will star Shailene Woodley. She’s the next hot gal after a breakout performance in The Descendants, followed by scoring the Mary Jane role in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel. I’m told that Summit held Divergent “chemistry” readings yesterday that paired Woodley with four young actors: Luke Bracey, Brenton Thwaites, Lucas Till and Jack Reynor.

Since I barely got my high school Regent’s diploma with a 65 in chemistry (at the time it was a jump shot at the buzzer following the 32 I scored in trigonometry), I am the wrong person to ask about who emerged with a leg up by acing this chemistry test.
