Actor Emjay Anthony has been signed to play the role of Hector in the upcoming “Divergent” movie “Insurgent.” Hector is Shauna and Lynn’s little brother, and he is one of the people Tris (Shailene Woodley) is able to save when a simulation threatens to take his life.

The studio announced the news in a Tweet, which reads:

Lynn and Shauna’s brother, Hector, will be played by Emjay Anthony and we couldn’t be more excited! #Insurgent

Here’s a description of the “Divergent” book “Insurgent” by Veronica Roth:

“One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.”

Emjay also makes an appearance in Jon Favreau’s movie “Chef.” Have you seen the film in theaters yet? Check out the trailer for “Chef” below!
