If there was going to be a movie (and there's a lot of interest) this is who I think should be the cast: *Look at post 12 for my updated cast list*
Jace Wayland aka Jonathon Christopher:
He has that whole bad boy, big attitude thing going on and he's got the tanned skin and golden curls :) Aww.
Emma Stone is in The House Bunny and Superbad. She has those sweet, delicate looks Clary has. Look for yourself: http://images.askmen.com/photos/emma-stone/22721.jpg
I think Demi Lovato would be good for this role, she has naturally pale skin and dark hair and I think she can be as mean as Isabelle.
Okay, so it's a pretty slim chance he WON'T be Alec but he has the pale skin, dark hair and pretty features. Introducing, Mr. Jackson Rathbone!
The gay, glittery-dressing High Warlock of Brooklyn. What an honour! :) I'm not really even sure if he can speak English but - eh :D I can totally see him in frilly shirts and glittery jeans :)
Clary's unnoticed best friend who happens to be secretly in love with her. I think Michael Cera would be perfect :)
I love your choices for .. Jace, Clary, Simon and Alec :)
Pure awesomeness, Nicks :P
Jace is the best!
Thank you, I love my choices for Jace and Clary and Simon the most. I wish about Alec but I doubt it :(
Thanks :) And I just checked, Emma Stone is 20. Still not too old to play Clary!
I just watched House Bunny again. Emma looks to Uni student age type not around clary's age
Hello, RPattz is 22 and playing a 17 y.o. Emma Stone is 20 and would play a sixteen year old. Clary turns sixteen like halfway through the book. :P
The only one I don't like is Demi Lavato for Isabelle.
I think Isabelle would need to look more harsh than her.
But I love all of the other ones :)
^ I don't mind her as Isabelle but I couldn't find anyone else. And I want to change the guy that plays Alec to Ben Barnes - he'd be awesome!
My Clary would be Alexz Johnson
My Simon(ew) would be Kristopher Turner.
The one and only Jace is Alex Pettyfer :)
My Alec is Adam Greggory
My Isabelle is Jessica Stroup :)
I like Jace, Alec and Simon. The girl for Clary is too pretty, she's more beautiful than cute. And Clary is cute. The girl for Isabelle is too exotic looking, in my opinion. Gosh - I sound so mean but I'm not trying to. I think Jace is PERFECT. And the guy for Alec is AWESOME. And Simon too - he's just unexpecting-looking to be Simon but you can see the good-lookingness under the surface, perfect for when he turns into a vampire! I'll change Alec to that guy and Simon to your guy as well. Coming right up ...
My Dream Cast (it might change) for City of Bones :)
Jace Wayland = Alex Pettyfer:
He's got the bad boy look, golden hair and skin and if you have watched his movies - he's just as cocky but adorable as Jace. AWWW :D If he isn't Jace - I'm gonna be REALLY upset :)
Clary (Clarissa) Fray = Emma Stone:
She is just pretty enough to be Clary - and with the right 'do and make-up she can be a stunner! She looks sweet but from her movies, The House Bunny and Superbad - we know she isn't always! She's got Clary's temper :)
Alec Lightwood = Adam Greggory:
Personally, haven't seen his acting but he has Alec's good looks!
Isabelle Lightwood = Kaya Scodelario or Megan Fox:
Both of them are absolutely beautiful and looks like how I imagined Isabelle! Plus, for Megan, I know she definitely has that bad girl attitude!
Simon = Kristopher Turner:
Haven't seen him act either but he can totally rock the specs!
Jocelyn Fray = Geena Davis or Molly Ringwald:
Both these actresses are huge stars! They're both great actresses and have the red tresses. I prefer Molly, just because she has more of a resemblance to Emma Stone :)
Valentine = George Clooney:
He can be evil and be totally great at it! Plus, he still is good-looking even silver-haired - just like Valentine! Do I need to even talk about his acting skills?
Magnus Bane = Criss Angel:
Look, he's already in costume, what a darl!
I'll add more as the cast as I go on :) Still need Luke and Hodge! And that fake-witch chick - I forget her name :)
I like Molly for Jocelyn.
And Clooney would be a great Valentine.
I pictured Isabelle as that exotic.
She is supposed to be beautiful.
And I love Jessica Stroup :)
Yeah, I thought my Alec was perfecto :)
^ Agree with Alec. He is really perfect :) I don't really like Ali as Isabelle but I can't find anyone I like. Maybe they'll get an unknown to play her.
No but Cassandra Clare said there is alot of interest from a few producing companies so fingers crossed, SOOON! :)
If you look at it in the middle, it looks like Cale. CALE :D HAHA! That's a weird name!
Here are my choices :)
Clary--Alyson Hannigan or Amy Acker
Isabelle Lightwood--Amy Lee :)
Alec Lightwood--Jackson Rathbone
Magnus Bane--Johnny Depp
no pictures needed
I love Johnny Depp.
He is an excellent actor
I aspire to be like him
even though I'm a girl
Yeah..he also does really cool, quirky movies that I really enjoy watching. :)
I think Jace was perfect, The rest.. I do not see them as those characters...Especially Magnus Bane.
I see him more of a gothic type of personality.
And Demi Lavato as Isabelle? Something is wrong there because Demi Lavato is a HORRIBLE actor.
Look up these characters which i think is a better fit. :
I believe they're going to be the cast?? I'm not sure. And that's IF they make the movie. (BTW, got it off of another cite!) :D
Clary Fray - Alexz Johnson
Jace Wayland (Jonathan Christopher) - Alex Pettyfer
Simon Lewis - Kristopher Turner
Alec Lightwood - Drew Fuller
Isabelle Lightwood - Megan Fox
Jocelyn Fray - Famke Janseen
Luke Garroway (Lucian Graymark) - Scott Speedman
Hodge Starkweather - Bill Nighy
Valentine Morgenstern - Sean Bean
Um..yes, there is going to be a movie but NOTHING else has been confirmed. ALL of the casts on the net are made up..even the one on Cassandra Clare's own page is just people she would like to play the parts.
These are my choices for the cast...I personally think they're perfect :D
Cary - Emma Stone
-- or --
Jace - Alex Pettyfer
Alec - Chase Crawford
Isabelle - Leighton Meester
-- or --
Simon - Micheal Cera
-- or --
Valentine - Brad Pitt
-- or --
Luke - Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Magnus - Mike Doyle
-- or --
-- or --
Hodge - Bill Nighy
Rapheal - Khleo Thomas
Jocelyn - Molly Ringwald
-- or --
Madame Dorothea - Eartha Kitt
I don't know why, but since I started reading this series, I totally see Hayden Christensen as Jace...and I think Ed Westwick from Gossip Girl would be a good Alec or maybe Magnus...Drew Roy could work for Alec as well..he's a hottie!
Ed Westwick could totally fill the part of Alec.
Who is Drew Roy?
I think if Lucas Til(sp?) had a different accent or voice(?) he could be Jace.
HOW COULD YOU ATHINA!? ALEX PETTYFER IS THE ONLY ONE FOR JACE! I'M NEVER SPEAKING TO YOU AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Those people are just models who are unknown to the acting industry.
Sorry Narlene just making more options but Alex is definitely number one.
before i even read any of this i already had the perfecttt isabelle
and that is
she has dark hair, shes not short, un sure how tall she is
she can definatly pull off an isabelle attitude which is
sexy, daring and a good actorr
MEGAN FOX = perfect isabelle
Um sorry but she seems to old and wrong for the part but thats my opinion. In Transformers she seemed like eye candy and not really a character that's necessary for the film.
Hmm. I don't know about the others but this is who I might cast for the leads.
Clary = Emma Roberts or Bonnie Wright
Jace = Bradley James or Hunter Parrish
Maybe they'd get some unknowns to play the roles but I do like the idea of Hunter Parrish to play Jace. He seems to right for the part.
I totally hate the idea of Alexz Johnson to play Clary. ew. Even though the characters are in high school i always tend to place them as older when i read the books. Here is who i pictured when i read the books...
Clary - Emma Stone
Jace - Christopher Egan
Alec - Steven Strait
Isabell - Nikki Reed
Simon - Michel Cera (i love his mannerisms) or Gordon Joseph-Levitts
^ he even has the round glasses on!
They cut half my post :(
Valentine – Eric Bana or Gerard Butler
Luke – Ryan Reynolds or Sam Trammell
^Ryan (I think this picture screams Luke)
Magnus – Adam Lambert
I love Emma Stone for Clary! She's my top choice for Clary as well.
I also like Eric Bana for Valentine. :)
They're pretty good cast choices! I never picture actors I try to imagine them as themselves.
Thanks MDLady...I see you're from Baltimore. We should hang out sometime! ;)
Not only am I from Baltimore, we like a lot of the same books I see. We could chat about books sometime.
These are who I would like to see cast as the characters in the movie:
Jace Wayland-Bradley James
Clary Fray-Alexz Johnson
Alec Lightwood-Adam Gregory
Simon Lewis-David Henrie
Sebastian Verlac/Jonathan Morgenstern -Toby Hemingway
Valentine Morgenstern-Billy Zane, Gerard Butler, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, or Jason Issacs
Luke/Lucian Galloway-Dillon McDermott
Isabelle Lightwood-Katie McGrath
Hodge -Gerard butler or Anthony Head
Jocelyn Fairchild-Sienna Guillory or Embeth Davidtz
Maryse Lightwood-Kate Beckinsale
Maia-Christina Vidal or Jessica Parker Kennedy
Max Lightwood-Jake T. Austin
Robert Lightwood-Hugh Jackman
Most if them are reletivly unknown, which is how I think the movie should be cast, with unkown or not so famous actors. You can find out more about them if you google them =D
Your choices are ok.I personally think the ones besides Jace and Magnus are a little iffy. I would love to see G-dragon as Magnus.The Korean pop idol could efinitely portray him, if he worked on keeping his accent under control.
61: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO You cannot make G-Dragon gay. He is to cute and adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And he is blonde now!!!
G-Dragon is gay.
And Toni Collette is Aussie! But I don't think she's good for Jocelyn.
Guys who use more hairspray than me and wear glitter are gay in my book.
This is my cast:
- Alex Pettyfer
- Nikki Reed
- Adam Gregory
- Michael Cera
- Daniel Craig
- Molly Ringwald
- Ryan Reynolds
- Adam Lambert
- Liam Neeson
- Khleo Thomas
- Kate Beckinsale
- Hugh Jackman
Well there has been a lot of talk about who is going to play the beloved charachters from the series. I am going to give my God honest opinion on what others have said.
First of all...Megan Fox would not be a good Isabelle because she looks too mature and is movie eye candy...that's it. Second...any red head from Harry Potter needs to stay a red head from Harry Potter. i didn't like that chick in those movies why would i like her in this one. Third, Molly Ringwauld is an awesome actor but she is one for drama and romance not action...she would be out of place. As for Clary we can't have the chick from House Bunny doing it because even if she is twenty she looks too mature.
People think about what the actor looks like compared to the age of the charachter...i love these actors just as much as the next person but come on!
Oh and here are my choices...they aren't the best ones and are subject to change if a better one comes up but here you go...
I had trouble with clary and will say that they should get an unknown for a lot of these roles but the best choice I have is...Alexz Johnson
Jace was just as hard because you can't just get a pretty boy but I would guess...Alex Pettyfer...fits for now
Alec could have gone two ways with...Steven Strait or Ben Barnes
Isabelle is one i would advise that they go with an unknown but if i had to choose it would be...Taylor Cole...she is a little old but that's fixable
Now Simon was easy...Kristopher Turner
Magnus was another easy one...Adam Lambert...okay he totaly fits the bill and i thought he fit the best
Luke was...Scott Speedman
Hodge fell into two actors...Bill Nighy or Liam Neeson
Valentine was tough but it boiled down to...Eric Bana or Sean Bean
Jocelyn was one of the toughest but if i had to choose it would be Angie Everhart
Sebastion/Jonathon would be a long haired...Alexander Ludwig in my world
Raphael was tough and one that would best be filled by an unknown but sadly if it was filled with an actor it would be...David Henrie...slap some make up one him and yay
Dont tell me that Khleo Thomas would fit...he's not even Latino nor does he look it!
If i had my way the whole cast would be unknown but oh well.
I agree with you about Megan Fox. The Transformers movies should just be called Excuses For Guys to Fawn Over Megan Fox.
She totally draws the attention away from the movie and the rest of the (more important) cast.
I think Adam Lambert would be an awesome Magnus!
I don't like Kristopher Turner that much, and I loathe Alexz Johnson being Clary. NO WAY!
And I absolutely love Alex Pettyfer for Jace and I will cry my eyes out if anyone else is cast.
Also, all THREE books are being made into ONE movie. This is outrageous!!
yeah like i said i would prefer unknowns for the whole cast especially clary but the fact that all three are going to be one is just ridiculous. there is too much going on to squeeze it into one film!!!
The perfect Clary is: Skyler Samuels I just saw her on a new show on ABC The Gates I think she is perfect and the right age becasue while Emma Stone and whoever else was suggested would be good i think she fits perfectly.
And I love Megan Fox as Isabelle!
OMG I lawled when i saw that you put G-dragon (Jiyong) for Magnus. Yes, he can speak perfect English (has a bit of an accent), but he's just way too perfect for the part. How amazing would he be for Magnus? That would be an awesome publicity thing for BIG BANG and for him and k-pop music. Lol, I also love how the movie is actually official and I love your cast (still thinking about Jiyong w
But GD is not gay, nor is he blonde at the moment. He has black hair (again :P) and he would do an awesome job if he knew to keep his accent under control and brushed up on his acting skills a little. HE ISN'T GAY! GOSH! He just likes to wear a lot of colours, in our culture, that WOULD be considered gay, but in the pop Asian fashion idustry, he would be considered a fashion god. He just has a very awesome sense of fashion for where he lives. He just perfect :)
Every time I think of Jace, I think of Kyle Schmid
He might be a little too old for the part but I think he'd be perfect for it.
no way he cant be he doesnt even have blond hair sorry no offence but i cant see it
Ok so everyone is going on and on about who they want as everyone. Well, we dont have a say in it, now do we. But im not trying to be mean or anything, so dont be offended.
I will say what i think though-I hope people like this one, cuz i personally think they are all great choices
they already chose her, and i think its perfect.
He played in "Easy A"
Izzy-Selena Gomez, or Megan Fox
Magnus-Johnny Depp or Adam Lambert
If Johnny can play a hot pirate, he can play a gay warlock.
She looks great, but i dont know if she will with red hair.
Valentine - James Marsden or luke goss
Luke - The werewolf guy from true blood Joe Joe Manganiello
Magnus Bane - Alexander Skarsgard, merely because he is a god and should be in more films (: ok maybe he shouldn't play magnus but he should be in the film (: but maybe willie garson from sex and the city / white collar would fit. . .. or shane brolly
Simons friend who raps should be the guy who throws up in the cinema in twilight, he seems pretty ideal for that kind of role.
Sebastian - Taylor Kitsch from the covenant
Isabelle - Alexandra Daddario from white collar and percy jackson and the lightning thief, speaking of which the lead guy (logan lerman) would probably make a good alec (:
Hodge - Steven Mackintosh
Alec - Nicholas Hoult
This is my dream cast:
Though my judgement is horrible.
Clary- Bonnie Wright
Jace- Alex Pettyfer
Valentine- Gerard Butler
Alec- Alex Evans
Isabelle- Selena Gomez (besides the nice personality)
Simon- Josh Hutcherson
Sebastian/Jonathan- Lucas Till
Magnus- Jonathan Bennett
Jocelyn- Geena Davis
I really Think all of them are REALLY good.. Except Isabelle..
And Um The Dude You picked For Mangus Bane?
That's GDRagon, A Rapper.. For a Boyband, just thought to point that out..
emma roberts would also seem to be a perfect fit for Isabelle's role .. :)
alex pettyfer is perfect for Jace .. :)
logan lerman for Alec ... :)
lily collins for Clary ... :)
hahahahha ... just figured it out .. :)
