Ansel Elgort (Caleb Prior) has been offered the role of Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars film adaptation of John Green’s bestselling novel. He will star alongside Shailene Woodley (Tris Prior), who is playing Hazel Grace.

This is the second movie that Ansel and Shailene will be in together. The first one is the highly anticipated adaptation of Veronica Roth’s bestselling novel Divergent.

John Green spoke exclusively to EW about how great Ansel is:

“Ansel is whip-smart and uber-charismatic and everything I dreamed for Augustus Waters,” John Green tells EW in an exclusive statement. “I am by nature a cautious pessimist, but I’ll just say it: Now that we have Shailene and Ansel, I am completely, unreservedly psyched about this movie.”

Director John Boone also spoke about Ansel as Augutus:

“Ansel Elgort is the epitome of the boy John Green brought to life so vividly in his novel and he truly embodies the character traits we admire so much about Gus. His humor, sensitivity, honesty and confidence floored us. Watching him with Shailene was like seeing the film for the first time. Hearing then say okay to each other was incredibly moving. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have found our Gus.”

How amazing is it that Ansel and Shailene will be in two movies together?

You can see them together in Divergent on February 21, 2014.
