Movie News Volume IV

Okay, this particular Movie News is concerning The Mortal Instruments movie, book written by Cassandra Clare. I don't know how many of you have been keeping track, but they've cast Clary (Lily Collins) and that was pretty much it. There was some debate about who would be cast as Jace and there were several guys up for it, but honestly, none of them made me too happy. But, they've finally cast Jace, and here he is:

Does he look familiar readers?

This was the only pic I could find where he was dressed in everyday digs and looked good. Looking familiar yet?

This is our star in Camelot. I never saw it, but he looks great. Still not looking familiar? Check out the next pic...

That's correct ladys and gents, he is one of our vamps from Twilight Volturi.

So, what do you all think of this pick? I'm thinking I like it better than the other ones I've seen in the running.


  1. THAT I was not expecting. Well, at least is not alex Pettyfer *phew*

  2. @ Stray - That's what I'm sayin! Pettyfer can't act worth a dang and I so didn't want that as Jace, no matter what he looked like. I'm hoping they can turn him into Jace. Plus, being in Camelot, I'm hoping he can act. I guess I'll need to see Camelot to see how he does.

  3. I'm thinking, meh. I don't think I'll be able to watch the movie anyway, no matter who's cast - there's just no way it can live up to the books, you know?

  4. Oooooh - I never would have realized he was the Volturi vampire! I think I like him for Jace. I wonder when the movie will actually come out??

  5. Um, that's Jace?! Really?! :o He's just so NOT Jace!! I know Alex Pettyfer isn't - uh - the best actor in the world, lol, but at least he looked the part. I don't know what it is about this guy, but he's just so scrawny and wimpy looking!! :P

  6. @Susan - I know exactly what you're saying, but I'll still probably end up there. It's like I can't stay away from its damaging effects or something.

    @Katie - I'm curious how he'll do as Jace. I really hope they buff him up though. I just hope he fits the part.

    @Bella - Welcome back! I know none of the pictures look like Jace, so I don't know how he is going to fit into the groove. And I agree, he is scrawny and wimpy looking. I'm really hoping they make him gain weight and muscle because if I have to look at a scrawny guy as Jace for the whole movie, I may be a bit depressed about it. Edward was enough of a let down...

  7. Aw, thank you!! :) Well, you know, Jacob Black went from scrawny to WHOA!! DON'T YOU PUT THAT SHIRT BACK ON, WOLFIE-BOY!! :o So, there's hope, hehe.

  8. Well I have to admit that before I was a Pettyfer fan, he was my Jace in the looks department, but he cannot act. I wish he could but he just can't! He was also offered the part but never got back to the studio for 3 months! And it was supposed to only be a 2 week decision! Honestly after the first month I got a little fed up and I was hoping that they would choose someone else. I think I lost respect for him after hearing that, and he was also offered a bunch of other roles in other movies and he never got back to them either. Anywy back to Jamie.

    When I found out it was Jamie I thought okay. I was surprised because I thought I would either love the decision or hate it but I literally just thought...okay. I don't hate him but I don't love him either right now. I think he is a good actor though so I'm thinking/hoping he'll do a great job! I heard he had an amazing audtion with Lily and they're supposed to be putting more meat on his bones, muscle I mean. :) But I still need to see a picture of what our Jace is going to look like because right now he's not exactly there for me. Oh, by the way he was also in Sweeny Todd as that guy who fell in love with Joanna, I can't remember his name though. He also made a very brief apperance in the latest Harry Potter. Okay I'll stop taking up everyone else's comment space. :)

  9. @Bella - Oh my gosh, YES! I really would like to poster Jacob on my wall...shirtless. I think Hubby would be so pissed he'd shoe me out of the house. Oh well, we can hope Jamie bulks up because scrawny good. He is quite an excellent actor, so that's good (silver lining?).

    @Kate - You never take up enough comment space. :D Seriously, your comments...I love them. I didn't know all that about the three months and all, but I wasn't really looking forward to Pettyfer because he can't act worth a dang. Even my mother said so when she saw him in Beastly. That's saying something because my mom doesn't notice a lot of things like that. And, I feel the same about Jamie. I really think he needs to bulk it up, so let us hope it works. I hope they put out pics of him as Jace so we can get a feel for it (like they did with Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss). I remember seeing he had a thing in the last Harry Potter, but I'm curious who. I have to look it up.

  10. yeah it would retain the special through the linkings of the movie.. thank you..


I always love comments, and I read every single one!

Also, this is now designated an award free zone. Although I love awards and I love everyone for thinking of me, I just don't have the time to honor them like they need to be honored. Thank you though for your consideration!
