The actors were asked by the host if ziplining was involved at all in the making of Divergent causing Woodley to joke, "This is just something we do in real-life. Traffic is insane!” Woodley plays Tobias 'Four' Eaton in the upcoming movie with Shailene Woodley as Beatrice 'Tris' Prior. The cast also includes Kate Winslet, Zoe Kravitz and Ansel Elgort.

Divergent is the first movie in the upcoming franchise based on the novels by Veronica Roth. It focuses on teenager 'Tris', played by Shailene Woodley, who seeks to break free from her homogenous society that divides people based on human traits. It is directed by Neil Burger, with a screenplay by Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor. The book series has sold far sold over 5 million copies.

The success of the novels has made the film one of this year’s mostly hotly anticipated releases. Kimmel compared  the film’s "intense fame and scrutiny" to that of other franchises such as The Hunger Games and Twilight.  James said he was aware of the possible scrutiny when he signed up for the film, saying, "We both talked about it. It's a thing you need to think about, to contemplate how it's going to change your career and your life. At the same time, you don't know what anything is going to be. You can't predict the future.” Woodley agreed adding, "the lack of anonymity is the most daunting factor, but you never know what will happen.” The pair also joked that their new morning regime included seeing how fast they can hide their faces behind masks.

The pair were also quizzed by Kimmel on their previous roles including James’s appearance on the first series of Downton Abbey as the Turkish diplomat who dies shortly after taking Lady Mary’s virtue, the actor joked, "Can you imagine dying, mid- ... you know,”, using some inappropriate hand gestures to describe what he meant. Divergent is release in the US on March 21st 2014.
