Detergent? Convergent? Emergent? WHO THE FRICK KNOWS, but anyway, the cast are starting to be announced for the 2014 film adaptation, and we're getting excited.

Shailene Woodley is confirmed to play our main gal, Beatrice Prior (Tris). You may know her from The OC in 2006 (as an early KAitlin Cooper), The Descendants, or one episode of My Name Is Earl.

Kate Winslet is also down to star, but no character name has been given to her yet. We're guessing she'll play Tris' mum; who starts off a bit of a goody goody and turns out to be BADASS.
