WATCH: Ansel Elgort reveals how he got the role of Caleb in ‘DIVERGENT’!

This week is Candor week so lots of interviews will be happening this week.  Our Caleb, Ansel Elgort, reveals to MTV’s Josh Horowitz how he got the part of Caleb. For fans that didn’t know Ansel also talks about how he auditioned to play Four.

Watch the interview below:

“I auditioned for Four,” he said, referring to the “Divergent” role played by Theo James. “We did a few takes and it wasn’t really working — it was okay, whatever — and [my friend] was like, ‘You should take a knife and hold it while you’re giving the speech.’ So I took a big kitchen knife, a big one, and I had the kitchen knife and I was holding it, playing with it, giving this speech as Four…”

He paused, and then laughed.

“I wasn’t ready for Four.”

It’s OK, though: Elgort says that he’s thrilled to have landed the role of Caleb — “He’s a really interesting guy,” he mused — and furthermore, that he knew as soon as he saw Theo James in the role that the right man had won the part. Actually, he was so moved by James’ performance that he felt compelled to tell him so at the first possible opportunity, which came at, er, a not-so-opportune moment.

“This might’ve been awkward, but we were both in the bathroom standing at two urinals, and I looked over at him and was like, ‘Dude. You’re crushing it,'” Elgort said. “I was like, ‘I couldn’t get that quiet intensity, man. You’re perfect.’ “

Ansel Elgort on Shailene Woodley:

“My first meeting with Shailene, she comes over and gives me a big hug,” Elgort recalled. “And I think I was taken by surprise a little bit, and I didn’t hug her back that much. And to this day, she tells me that she wasn’t sure she was going to like me because I didn’t hug her back.”

What do you think of our Caleb?
