With the success of “The Fault in Our Stars,” Ansel Elgort has quickly gone from newcomer to Hollywood hottie overnight.
Sure, he had a role in Shailene Woodley’s “Divergent” as the other Potter sibling, but playing Augustus Waters in “TFIOS” has surely boosted his profile.
In fact, Elgort has just lined up his next role. Per Deadline, he’ll play a piano prodigy named Van Cliburn in a movie of the same name.
The LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts grad will actually play the piano for the part, and he can dance (and paint Warhammer miniatures) too.
Not sure that will come in handy for “Van Cliburn,” as the 23-year-old character is more known for quelling some Cold War tension with his music than for his moves on the dance floor.
Elgort will also likely have an expanded role “Insurgent,” the second in the “Divergent” film series, next spring.
