Intro for March 13, 2013
Divergent casting news was released yesterday. Maggie Q will play Tori and Zoe Kravitz will be Christina. Did Veronica Roth have casting approval? Seems like it because they’ve managed to resist the urge to whitewash some key characters, which is great, though I wonder whether or not we’ll still get some racist raging from the same readers who went apesh-t over the fact that Rue from The Hunger Games was black. Four, by the way, has still not been confirmed and they’re apparently still screen-testing actors for the part. What would really be groundbreaking is if Four ended up not being ethnically what most people expect. And the likelihood of that is...?
Am still obsessed with Tom Hardy and his puppy cuddle. They should really be more careful with these kinds of photos. How are we to get any work done the rest of the week?
Yours in gossip,
PS. “Our little grape” -- this nickname belongs to whom? Coming up later today!
