Never heard of Theo James? Just wait. He's been called the next Robert Pattinson, but we think that moniker is selling him short (sorry, RPattz!). The handsome Brit stars in the upcoming Divergent movie — he plays Four to Shailene Woodley's Tris. And, without spoiling anything, we can tell you that he does a standup job. Not only is James totally hunky, but man can the guy act. He shows off his chops for everything from steely reserved moments to fight scenes to, um, more intimate interactions.
While this month's Divergent is the first many audiences will see of Theo, he's actually been making the rounds in British pop culture for a few years. Since we're always doing our best to keep you at the forefront of Hollywood's murmurings, we compiled 10 need-to-know facts about the YA star. Trust us when we say this is a guy you're going to want to watch.
