The Mortal Instruments Series
Click cover for my review
I’ll have you know, it took hours of work to get the characters as close to a perfect match as I could get to the ones in my head. But I’m finally done and I’m very pleased with the cast I picked!!
So, without further ado…
as JACE WAYLAND
Surprised? Yes, I know, EVERYONE picks Alex for Jace. But that’s just because he’s so darn perfect for him!!
Karen Gillanas CLARISSA FRAYI’ve seen a lot of people pick Emma Stone, and while I love her, I don’t think she’s suitable for Clary. I do like Hollywood’s pick of Lily Collins for the movie (releasing in 2013), but Karen is how I really picture her face in my head.
as SIMON LEWIS
Dorky, but still cute!
Odette Annabelleas ISABELLE LIGHTWOOD
as ALEC LIGHTWOOD
Adam Lambertas MAGNUS BANELet’s hope he can act as well as he can sing, because I think he’s perfect for the flamboyant wizard!
as JOCELYN FRAY
Scott Speedmanas LUKE GARROWAY
as HODGE STARKWEATHER
Jason Isaacsas VALENTINE MORGENSTERN
as MARYSE LIGHTWOOD
Christian Baleas ROBERT LIGHTWOOD
as MAX LIGHTWOOD
Jennifer Freemanas MAIA ROBERTS
Kevin Zegersas JORDAN KYLE
Judi Denchas INQUISITOR IMOGEN HERONDALE
Diane Laneas AMATIS HERONDALE
Ben Barnesas SEBASTIAN VERLACHe can pull of blonde, too. Ya know, if the need arises ;)
as RAPHAEL SANTIAGO
Bill Nighyas CONSUL MALACHI DIEUDONNEBecause he’s so perfect at playing the creepy guy with authority.
as CAMILLE BELCOURT
Alright, so I really didn’t want to pick her, but her face kept floating up in my mind everytime Camille had a part. I don’t like her much, but she could totally pull of the sophisticated, elegant, and manipulative vampire.
Famke Janssenas LILLITH
as ALINE PENHALLOW
Saoirse Ronanas HELEN BLACKTHORN
as QUEEN OF THE SEELIE COURT
Boris Kodjoeas MALIKHe didn’t have a real big part, but I still felt he deserved mentioning. That, and as soon as they described him, this is who I pictured.
And last, but certainly not least (because we all know how Geo feels about cats, so of course he had to be in here too):
Characters that I didn’t dream cast:
Jia and Patrick Penhallow
What do you think, loverlies?? Agree/disagree? Who would YOU pick instead?
This is an AWESOME list! I had to quickly scroll through to find out who you cast as Magnus, because you’d need to find just the right person for that role — and you NAILED it! I seriously need to read book 5, like ASAP.
OMG, these guys are perfect. :D I love who you casted for Magnus. :D Love that guy. And Alex for Jace is awesome, and he was actually suppose to play him, but then he dropped out because he wanted to play more adult roles. GAH! HE’S HOT! WHY NOT! Anyway, Jamie Campbell Bower is know playing Jace. And Lily Collins is okay. Not sure how I will like her with red hair. :D
I don’t like the Jamie guy, I think he looks weird haha. Stupid Alex!
what a beautiful line-up!
YES. That is all I have to say.
I don’t like who they have playing Valentine in the movie. He doesn’t look like what he’s supposed to, and now my only question is: What is Sebastion going to look like, when he’s not in disguise? Sorry, I refuse to call him Johnathan because that is Jace’s name, and Sebastion doesn’t deserve it! I don’t mind who you picked to play Jace Wayland, but he looks too old to me. Jace was a 17 year old boy, and Jamie looks perfect as him. His body, his hair (especially the way it seemed to curl behind his ears, so cute), and his eyes were beautiful. I thought he was an angel when I looked at him. He was perfect. They could have picked someone else to play Clarry, but she was ok I guess. But, I like who you picked to play her. She looks a lot better than Lily.
I disagree with you with Clary. Lily’s the perfect Clary..
Magnus and Aline are whitewashed…
why didn’t u pick poc people for poc characters
