#MCM: Why ‘Divergent’ Star Theo James Melts Our Hearts

MTV News pays tribute to the knife-throwing, ass-kicking Four in this week's Man Crush Monday.

He may play the cool and dangerous Four in “Divergent,” but we promise there is nothing harmful in falling for Theo James, which is exactly what we at MTV News have done on #ManCrushMonday.

The British heartthrob caught our eye long before he was kicking ass and throwing knives. The 29-year-old (and his chiseled cheekbones) made a cameo on arguably one of the best episodes of “Downton Abbey,” playing Mr. Pamuk, who had an untimely death in the throes of passion.

But being an actor isn’t all Theo can do. He graduated with a philosophy degree from the University of Nottingham, and as a former band member, the man can carry a tune.

Could Theo possibly get any hotter? Well, judge for yourself in the GIFs below, and make sure catch Theo and co-star Shailene Woodley as they help Ellie Goulding premiere her video for the “Divergent” track, “Beating Heart” during “MTV First” on Tuesday night. It all starts at 7:53 p.m. ET on MTV.
