by: on | in Movies | 3 Comments


The Fault In Our Stars hasn't even hit theaters yet, but we've already fallen in love with Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley as Gus and Hazel Grace. However, before these two very talented actors were bestowed with their respective roles, there were a few other names that were thrown into the mix as to who would play these iconic characters. Yes, believe it or not, there was a very real possibility that a duo other than these two could have been the ill-fated lovers. Don't believe us? Click through the gallery below to see which actors (and actresses) you didn't know were considered to play Hazel and Gus. And as if you needed a reminder — The Fault In Our Stars hits theaters on June 6. (!!!!)

1. Brenton Thwaites

Brenton is set to star in the big screen adaptation of the book The Giver, but in addition to that AND being in the running to play Four in Divergent, he was also considered to play Augustus Waters.

2. Liana Liberato

You might recognize Liana from Stuck In Love (which was helmed by TFiOS director Josh Boone) but she was also in the running to play Hazel Grace Lancaster. Though she didn't get the part, she is set to star in the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' upcoming book-turned-movie Best of Me.

3. Nick Robinson

Nick stars on the hit ABC Family show Melissa & Joey, but there was a chance he could have been Gus since he was at one point or another up for the role.

4. Hailee Steinfeld

Before Shailene was cast as Hazel, Hailee's name was thrown into the mix for someone to play the cancer-stricken teen.

    I could see Brenton as Augustus!

    • Amy

      Damn he could have been Four!! That would have worked so much better for me. Theo was okay but Brenton would have been better. I will take him as Patch in Hush Hush though!
