I enjoyed the first film of the series but is the sequel worth the hype? Based on Veronica Roth’s novel, “Insurgent” has Shailene Woodley (Tris), Theo James (Tobias/Four), Miles Teller (Peter), and Ansel Elgort (Caleb) returning to the franchise. One of the new characters is Johanna, the Amity leader, played by Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer. Not returning is original director Neil Burger. In his place is Robert Schwentke. So is this sequel for you? Find out in my review of “The Divergent Series: Insurgent.”

Theo James is such a doll! There I said it! I’m sure all the girls agree! And he’s sweeter in person! I talked to the actor last year for “Divergent” and it’s fun to talk about his second time playing the character of Tobias Eaton aka Four. In this interview, we talked about his experience working with Shailene the second time around, collaborating with a new director (Robert Schwentke), and why fans would want to see the sequel (I told him because Theo James is hotter this time HA!). And, he also wants to briefly talk about my homeland hero, Manny Pacquiao, upon learning that I’m also on The Filipino Channel. Let’s box!

I Love This Interview with Miles Teller for INSURGENT! He Talks About WHIPLASH, and What He Really Thinks of DIVERGENT SERIES!
I’ve interviewed Miles Teller about 3 times now namely “Footloose,” “Divergent,” and now, “Insurgent.” So to my surprise, he actually remembered my name! Yes! It made me feel happy and elated! And yes, we even talked about his interview with W Magazine from last September where he pretty much lambasted the “Divergent” franchise. So, I asked him about that! What was he thinking? You can see that near the end of my interview. Plus, he revealed how much student loan he still needs to pay! No wonder he makes blockbuster movies as much as he adores independent cinema! We all rooted for him in “Whiplash,” and truth be told, I’m still rooting for him now!

When I first interviewed Ansel Elgort for last year’s “Divergent,” he was a bit shy, meek, sort of unsure of his answers. Fast forward to one year later, meet Elgort, the confident leading man (“The Fault in Our Stars”), the mysterious character actor (Caleb Prior in “The Divergent Series”), and the emerging EDM god/DJ extraordinaire known as Ansolo. He’s pretty quite good actually! And I even name-checked his new singled called “Unite!” Wait ‘until you see his reaction! Oh yeah, we even talked about Madonna, the Queen of Everything!

Octavia Spencer (“The Help”) is a newcomer in the world of “The Divergent Series.” She plays Johanna, the leader of the Amity faction. I sat down with the sweet Oscar-winning actress to talk about her interest in joining the franchise, her character, and what’s beyond the wall? Is there hope?
