Guess who's got a surprise cameo in Paper Towns? (Warning: Spoilers within!)

Ever since John Green's The Fault In Our Stars was made into the most amazing (and heartbreaking) movie last summer, we've been waiting to see which of his other books would make it to the big screen next. But the wait is over when Paper Towns hits theaters this Friday.

With Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne starring as Quention and Margo, two teens who team up for a night of mischief before Margo disappears and Q and his friends set out to follow her clues and find her, we know this flick is going to be one to see—and if you've read the book it's based on, you know it won't disappoint.

Some lucky viewers have already seen the flick during a special red carpet screening, though, and there's one actor they can't stop buzzing about (and it's not one of the film's stars). According to Variety, there's a very special cameo featuring an actor you might have seen in a Green film before: Ansel Elgort.


It's a short cameo (only about two lines long), but a big one. Remember that iconic gas station scene from the books where Q and his friends are scrambling around to fill up the car, hit the bathroom and grab some snacks as quick as possible before jumping back on the road? Ansel's playing the gas station attendant. “The gas station scene is one of my favorite scenes in the book, and one that I was most excited about filming," director Jake Schreier said. "And given that, I felt like it was a great place to put a cameo like that.” 

Don't worry, you aren't the only who hadn't heard the news. This surprise was kept seriously underwaps. Even the actors had no idea it was happening until Ansel showed up on set.

How awesome is that? We can't wait to see Ansel and Nat reunite on screen—and find out what other suprises Paper Towns has in store.

Are you planning on seeing this film over the weekend? What other John Green books do you want to see on screen?
