Sorry for the lack of updates! I have been quite busy with school! Below are two videos Ansel put of his original tracks that he performed at Pacha in New York.

The highly anticipated adaptation of John Green’s beloved novel The Fault in Our Stars will be released in theaters on June 6, 2014. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, and Willem Dafoe.

Per Box Office Mojo, Fox will release director Josh Boone’s adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars in theaters on June 6, 2014, giving it a prime summer release date. The pic is currently slated to open against the Tom Cruise sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow. The emotional story is told from the point of view of Hazel, a young cancer patient who strikes up a relationship with another cancer-striken teen named Gus in a support group. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort are set in the lead roles, with a supporting cast that includes Nat Wolff, Willem Dafoe, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, and Mike Birbiglia.

“The Fault in Our Stars” has begun production in Pittsburgh, and it’s one of the fastest page-to-screen adaptations in recent movie history. Award-winning author John Green’s runaway critical and commercial success (it topped dozens of Best of 2012 lists) was published in January 2012, and the film is scheduled to hit theaters next year. There’s a lot riding on getting this brilliant young adult novel right, because unlike the trendy genre fare, this is a story about teens falling in love while dealing with very real and unthinkable issues — terminal cancer prognoses — and there’s nary a vampire, werewolf or dystopian government in sight.

“The Fault in Our Stars,” unlike some books-to-movies that the audience may not even realize are adaptations until the credits roll, is one of those best-selling, zeitgeist-capturing works like “Harry Potter,” “The Hunger Games,” and yes, even that little vampire phenomenon “Twilight,” that are so embedded in readers’ minds that every casting decision is met with cries of disapproval or skepticism — at least until the author chimes in with his/her approval.

That kind of endorsement is exactly what Green felt compelled to do after it was confirmed that Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort would play Hazel Grace and Augustus, the central characters in the adaptation, and his Twitter followers responded with cries of “no way, not them.”

Why Ansel Elgort is Perfect
Weber also spoke highly of Elgort playing Augustus — who is hot and funny and ridiculously smart. Elgort, 19, is a relative newcomer to Hollywood, but he graduated from New York’s prestigious LaGuardia School for the Performing Arts, had a starring role in an Off-Broadway show, and will win over any skeptics after appearing in both “Divergent” and “Carrie.”

“Ansel Elgort is not well known, but I promise America that he is going to rock Augustus,” Weber said. “He’s a brilliant young actor. And his chemistry with Shailene is just remarkable. He’s got that ‘Gus’ special quality.”

As for any awkwardness about the two playing brother and sister in the “Divergent” series and then teen lovers in “FiOS,” Weber reminds readers that if anything, their experience on “Divergent” has been like an extended rehearsal period for their tear-jerker romance.

“I think it speaks to their abilities as serious actors that they can go from brother and sister to this,” Weber said. “As actors who respect each other, they developed a rapport on that set that I know will translate over. Their chemistry is just so, so good.”

Elgort admitted to MTV News that the friendship he formed with Woodley on the Chicago “Divergent” set gave him a good in for landing the role.

“I’m sure it helped … We already were becoming best friends throughout [‘Divergent’], and then I tested in L.A. with her for that, and just the chemistry was perfect, and we’re both so excited to do it.”

Best of friends playing life-changing first loves? Hazel Grace and Augustus would approve. Okay? Okay.

I had the chance to chat with Ansel Elgort, who plays Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars, Tommy in Carrie, and Caleb Prior in Divergent! We mostly touched on preparations for playing Gus, which he shot his first day of…today! So this is a fun way to commemorate the exciting first day of filming. I also got five random facts about him, and he told me about what he has to change about himself, or add to himself, to play Augustus. Yes, this is my favorite book and most anticipated film…so I was a little bit excited and had a bit of trouble hiding my inner fangirl when I’m normally so good at that! Hope you enjoy!

On what he adds to his personality to become Augustus:
I think Gus is a little less grounded than me. I think he’s a little more insecure, and he sort of shrouds it in this sense of confidence that he doesn’t really have. That’s what gives him the ability later on in the story to break down and really have that vulnerability. Honestly [laughs] I’m probably that vulnerable too! But, I like to pretend that I know I’m a strong guy.

On if anything has been added for Caleb in Divergent that isn’t in the books:
In the book, his scenes are brushed over and are really about Tris. There are some that you see more of Caleb, and you see more of his arc. As an actor, I was just there doing it. Whether or not they cut it together so it shows my arc, who knows! But definitely, playing it out in the scenes, made it a better character and a better arc than I thought it would be.
