Romeo Miller not chosen for Uriah in The Divergent Movie?

Romeo Miller and Boo Boo Stewart have been actively campaigning for the role of Uriah in the Divergent Movie. Both of the actors have been retweeting favorable tweets about the role and both have expressed interest in wanting the part. Romeo Miller, or as many know him as Lil Romeo, has recently confirmed that he auditioned for the role.

Today fans asked Romeo via twitter if he got the part and he responded with, "I hope so, but I hear they wanna go "less ethnic"."  He actually said "ethic" in his tweet, but we knew what he meant!

*update* Romeo has tweeted again...and mentions black and white and deletes the tweet.

I wonder if Boo Boo Stewart auditioned for the role. He has never publicly said that he has and we have no further information from him.  We'll tweet him and see if he is as chatty as Romeo on the subject of Uriah.

Who will be our Uriah? Put your casting suggestions in the comments for your dream Uriah! With less than a month away from principal filming on Divergent, we hope to have casting news coming fast and furiously at us any day now!

Uhhhh, did he mean "less ethnic"...? I doubt his set of moral principles had anything to do with whether or not he gets the role... ;)

Danielle we agree with you.  He must of had a typo.  We fixed it for him.  LOL.

Isn't ethnic like ethnicity? Like race rather than "ethic" which is talking about morals.

Looks like his morals aren't good enough for the casting directors... :)

Jacob Artist would be so perfect for Uriah. I am a little happy Lil Romeo didn't get casted. Not that he's a bad actor it's just I couldn't see him doing this kind of romance action drama movie.

I do hope Boo Boo gets cast as Uriah, the first time i saw him i just was like "Holy Crap, he's perfect!"

My dream Uriah for the Divergent movie is Jake Deanda. Can't wait for filming to start.

I just thought that Boo Boo Stewart would be such a perfect Uriah! Hope he gets the part!

I think that Boo Boo Stewart would make a great Uriah. My dream Uriah would have to be Avan Jogia
