Calling all Divergent fans! Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer, who stole our hearts as Minnie Jackson in 2011's The Help, will be joining our June cover girl, Shailene Woodley, in the filming of Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent. The films are based on a popular young adult book trilogy by Veronica Roth and Spencer will be taking on the part of Johanna Reyes, the appointed "mouthpiece" of the peace-loving Amity faction. The movie is slated for release on March 20, 2015. We can hardly wait!

Plus, see Octavia and other stars at last year's Cannes Film Festival.
