The Fault in Our Stars’s Gus Will Be...Ansel Elgort!

Ansel Elgort will be Gus Waters in The Fault in Our StarsEntertainment Weekly has just reported that Ansel Elgort has been offered the role of Augustus “Gus” Waters in the film adaptation of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars opposite Shailene Woodley's Hazel Grace Lancaster.

H&Her Kate Nagy had this to say about Green's The Fault in Our Stars in her review of the book: 

[It's a] well-received Young Adult novel about two teenaged cancer patients who fall in love, and…wow. This book is to typical teen romance as Veuve Clicquot is to Capri Sun. Both funny and—well, “sad” doesn’t begin to describe it—it’s the best book I expect to read this year.

Intense, right? Could this movie earn a place in Jennifer Proffitt's list of top “no HEA” movies? We shall see!

One odd note: Woodley and Elgort will first be seen playing siblings in the Divergent film. Will they be able to transition from fraternal to romantic?
