    Who? Theo James Takes Male Lead In 'Divergent,' Aaron Eckhart, Miles Teller & Ray Stevenson Circling

    While Jeremy Irvine, Lucas Till and Alex Pettyfer were testing for the coveted (?) male lead in "Divergent," and certainly have more name recognition than the eventual winner, it seems their talents didn't quite match what the filmmakers were looking for. Instead, rising Brit actor Theo James has go...

    John McClane’s Son Joins YA Movie 'Divergent' With Shailene Woodley
