CONFIRMED: Shailene Woodley Will Play 'Tris Prior' In Divergent!

CASTING NEWS! We finally have confirmation of Shailene Woodley playing the role of Tris Prior in the Divergent Movie! We knew previously that the actress was in final talks to star as our heroine, but we've recieved no official word. Well, now the actress has confirmed it herself.

Shailene chatted to MTV's Josh Horowitz in her first interview regarding the Divergent, while promoting The Spectacular Now at the Sundance Film Festival. Specifically, she spoke about what inspired her to take on the role.

"After I read the book, I was really profoundly moved, and it's really metaphorical for things that are going on today, specifically things that I'm passionate about and things that I want to make public and things that I want to educate people on," Shailene said. "So I think it's a really great platform, not only artistically but also from a human level just to expose these kind of messy, nasty things that are going on in our country."
