The Mortal Instruments, City of Bones cast opinion

So, as many of you know, City of Bones is becoming a movie! And Cassie Clare is my all time favorite author. So, what do I think about the cast? I usually don't blog about movies, hence my calling of this blog a 'book blog,' but I've gotta talk about one of my favorite books becoming a movie! And of course, the cast! And also because this is such a widely talked-about subject.

Let's start with the gorgeous book cover of Jace's abs and the book synopsis.

 Book Summary: When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing -- not even a smear of blood -- to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . . 

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
I have a review of this book on here, but I bet it sucked. So don't bother reading it. LOL.

 Lily Collins as Clary Fray.
Looks like Clary? Yes. Except, apparently, she filmed with a darker hair color.  It doesn't matter. It's still red. And she looked absolutely amazing in the trailer. So yah, it's all good. I love Lily Collins, and she looks like she can completely pull it off as Clary.

Robert Sheehan as Simon Lewis.
Looks like Simon? YES HE LOOKS LIKE A SIMON ERMAHGERD. Simon is my favorite character in the whole Mortal Instruments series. I just love Simon. Like, Simon.
Robert Sheehan's Irish, an he's been working on an American accent for a while. It's just so awesome. He looks like a Simon and omg I can't wait to watch the movie

 Godfrey Gao as Magnus Bane.
Looks like Magnus? Godfrey Gao gets a hell yeah. 
Magnus is amazing. Godfrey looks like a Magnus. He looks like THE Magnus. He looks nice in eyeliner and sparkles, which is what Magnus Bane is supposed to look good in. So yeah, I am completely more-than-satisfied. Couldn't have asked for a better Magnus.

 Jemima West as Isabelle Lightwood.
Looks like Isabelle? YES. I'm really glad she dyed her hair.
I really have nothing to say about Izzy, LOL. I love Izzy though. Jemima West looks a lot like what Isabelle should look like.

 Kevin Zegers as Alec Lightwood.
Looks like Alec? Yeppers.
I imagined Alec to be a little younger, but I think Kevin Zegers should do fine. omg. I can't wait for the Malec kiss. I've got to see this.

 Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace Wayland.
Looks like Jace? Yeah.. no. Close enough?
There's a reason why I saved Jamie for last: Because he was the one that everyone was talking about.
Don't get me wrong-- I love this cast. I love Jamie Campbell Bower. He's amazing. That's a very appealing picture of him right there. I love his accent, and I love his hair. 
I think the main reason why people dislike him so much is because he just doesn't look like a Jace. At first, I was one of those people who didn't really like him. I was one of those people that expected Alex Pettyfer's beautiful face to be the face of the wonderfully cocky Jace Wayland. But I didn't really expect Alex to go to Fifty Shades and turn down this role.. But really, I'm glad that Jamie got cast as Jace. 
I'm just so sick of people saying that he's ugly and not fit for Jace. He's NOT UGLY. HE IS NOT UGLY. JAMIE CAMPBELL BOWER IS NOT FUCKING UGLY.

no. no don't say I have bad taste

But then again, it's not his facial appearance that MATTERS. You know what changed my mind? An article. I wish I could give you guys a link but I can't seem to find it. But really, I'm serious. That article changed my entire viewpoint. It just said a few things, and among those few things is that Jamie Campbell Bower has this vibe that screams 'Jace!!' He has a confidence in his mere WALK and when he walks into the room people notice.

And if his audition made Cassie Clare cry and pick him out herself, he should be great.

What I'm saying is that, even if he doesn't exactly look like the book's perf Jace Wayland, it's okay! What matters is his acting, and if he's already got an awesome vibe and a walk that shows his confidence, I think that's Jace enough for me. We've already seen him in Breaking Dawn. He's good. So if you're not satisfied with him, accept the fact that he's AWESOME or don't watch the movie at all.



  1. Idk how i feel about the cast, i guess i will have to see how they do in the movie!


    1. Yeah, we'll have to see! But they make the trailer look absolutely amazing, so I'm pumped.

  2. No way. There's a movie for fifty shades of grey?
