For those who don't know yet, Four is Tris' instructor during the Dauntless initiation and he will became his love interest throughout the series. He's actual name is Tobias Eaton but the Dauntless community calls him Four since he only got four fears. He is mysterious, really. Just read the book and find out why.

On the other hand, Theo James has appeared in CBS' Golden Boy and he also starred opposite Kate Beckinsale in the Underworld Awakening. He can sing too and he's a member of the Shere Khan band. You can watch Theo sing on their Youtube channel at

“I couldn't be happier that Theo James will be playing the role of Four," said Burger in a statement.
