Shailene Woodley won the coveted role of Hazel in the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars and it looks like the search to find the perfect Gus has begun!
According to Variety, five guys are rumored to be testing for the role of Augustus “Gus” Waters this weekend.
Australian hottie Brenton Thwaites, Nat Wolff, “Melissa & Joey” star Nick Robinson, Noah Silver and Ansel Elgort are said to be testing to play the former basketball player who loses his leg to cancer and meets Hazel in a cancer support group.
While FOX has not commented on the rumors, Nat Wolff took to twitter to send a link of an article and adding “I like this article.”
We think that Brenton would be a good fit and maybe even Nick. Nat could pull it off but we don’t think he has quite the right look for Gus who is described as, basically, a heartthrob. We also think it’d be a little weird to see Ansel in the role since he is already starring opposite Shailene in Divergent as her brother.
So, who do you think should take on the role of Gus? Would you choose one of these five or pick someone different?
