And Then the World Fell in Love With Theo James

Ladies, let's talk about the world's favorite heartthrob right now - Mr. Theo James.

I'll give you a second to recuperate...I suspect you swooned, fainted, and/or kissed your computer screen after gazing at the picture of that incredible specimen on a man. I did all three, no shame. We're kinda dating. In mind, but whatever. Just go with it.

I joined the party late in the game. I got the Divergent box set (that includes the whole series: Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant) for Christmas and didn't start reading until late January. Before I was finished with the first book the movie trailers were released, but luckily not played so frequently that I couldn't avoid them. I wanted to read the book without a picture of the cast. The second I finished reading, I jumped on the Divergent IMDB page to check out who was playing which characters. And then I saw Four, 29-year-old British actor, Theo James, and my heart skipped a beat.

God bless the casting director who made the genius move to select a relatively unknown, breathtakingly gorgeous man to play Tobias Easton who we all fell in love with while reading Divergent!

If you have yet to read Divergent, have no fear. I suspect you could watch the movie and understand the plot. But if you are like me and prefer to read the book first, you could easily get yourself a copy and read it in a few days. It's very similar to The Hunger Games in that it's a young adult novel with a strong heroin and supportive male at her side. Once you start reading you won't be able to put it down.

I cannot wait to see Divergent! Who else is going to see it? You should, that's for sure!

OMG I am so with you on this! I saw a clip of the movie the other day with him in it and wow... he's on another level.

It was like that moment when you were 13 and saw Leo for the first time. Life changing.

He's not what I pictured when I read the book. But he's so much better!

Can't wait to see it soon!

He was on a one season tv show and I was thrilled to see him in these movies after the show was stopped!

Have you seen that subway commercial where Nastia Lukin says, "Uhm, yum!" I think I sounded exactly the same when your page loaded!

I haven't read the books, but I'm just about done with Game of Thrones... looks like this Four guy might just help me get over Jon Snow!

I loved the first book but I just wasn't impressed with the movie. I still have a really bitter taste in my mouth about the last book.
