Who Will Play Gus? ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ Lands Its Leading Man!

by Jazmine Sky Bradley

Ansel Elgort

Last night author John Green confirmed that Ansel Elgort had officially signed onto the screen adaptation of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS.

Elgort, who features in the remake of cult horror CARRIE, will play Augustus Waters, a charismatic, funny young man who meets Hazel (Shailene Woodley) at a cancer support group. Green has said that Ansel is ‘everything I dreamed for Augustus’ and that he’s ‘completely, unreservedly psyched about this movie’.

Woodley and Elgort will be directed by Josh Boone (STUCK IN LOVE) who added:

“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.”

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS won’t be the first time Woodley and Elgort have worked together; they are both currently filming science fiction thriller DIVERGENT (as brother and sister – awkward?!)

I am a huge fan of John Green, having read most of his published work. I finished THE FAULT IN OUR STARS in little less than a week and had to hold back tears while reading it at work. Hazel and Gus are perfect for each other, so I am on tender hooks to see if Shailene and Ansel can bring that chemistry to the big screen.
