It was revealed this afternoon that Naomi Watts has been cast for Divergent’s upcoming sequels, Insurgent and Allegiant.
Naomi will star as Evelyn, the estranged mother of Tris’ boyfriend Four/Tobias.
However, not all fans have reacted well to the casting of Naomi, as many have argued that Naomi looks nothing like her character’s description in the hit book series.
Veronica Roth, author of the novels described Evelyn as having “curly black hair and olive skin” and that her and Tobias, “… also have the same strong jaw, distinct chin, spare upper lip, stick-out ears. Only her eyes are different— instead of blue, they are so dark they look black”.
While that doesn’t sound exactly like Naomi, we still think the actress will be able to pull off the role when filming stars for Insurgent this month.
Watts will be joining an all-star cast which includes, Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and Octavia Spencer.
