Shadowhunters’ SteleCast Episode 16 – Mall Tours and Sigourney Weaver

Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower and Kevin Zegers of "The Mortal Instruments" at Mall of America in Minneapolis

Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, and Kevin Zegers have just recently started the Mortal Instruments: City of Bones mall tours, with the first one at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota!  They’ve just hit Chicago and will be heading south to Miami and back up again to Philadelphia soon, so we’ll be talking a bit about that and some interesting stuff that happened at the Mall of America.

We’ll also be talking about casting rumors for Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, because there are some new characters that will be needed before filming starts in September.

Another one joins the cast.

If anyone has seen twitter recently you would know that we have another one joining the TMI cast. Martin Moszkowicz has confirmed that Elyas M´Barek will be in the movie however hasn’t said who he is playing. I think it might be the Spanish vampire Raphael Santiago. What do you think? Post your opinions in the comments below.

Valentine will return in the form of Jonathan Rhys Meyers

As it turns out the rumors are true! Cassie Clare has confirmed that Jonathan Rhys Meyers will be our psychotic baddie Valentine. You might know him as Henry VIII from The Tudors. I think this brings the casting to a whole new level of awesome. Who feels the same? Voice your opinons in the comments section below!

Do we have our Valentine?

You have to admit we have a good looking cast for the City of Bones movie. However things might be taken to a whole new level if the latest casting rumours are true. The Hollywood Reporter has said that the film is negotiating with Jonathan Rhys Meyers to join the cast as our deceptive baddie Valentine. They said….

 Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in negotiations to join the cast of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, an adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s YA fantasy novel from Constantin Film and Unique Pictures.

 Harald Zwart is directing the movie, which is due to begin production later this month in Toronto.

 Lily Collins leads the cast as a young woman who discovers she is the descendant of a secret cadre of half-angel warriors called Shadowhunters locked in an ancient battle to protect the world from demons. Jessica Postigo and I. Marlene King wrote the script.

Rhys Meyers will play Valentine Morgenstern, described as a powerful but insane Shadowhunter looking to make the world pure at any cost.

 Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey and Mad Men’s Jared Harris and Kevin Zegers are among the cast.

So what do you think of this report. Do you think we have our Valentine?

Thanks to TMI Source for the info.

Stephen R. Hart cast as Brother Jeremiah

We have even more City of Bones casting news for you!  Stephen R. Hart will be playing Brother Jeremiah.  If you’re like me and not too familiar with Mr. Hart’s work, you can check out his filmography on IMDb.

We found this piece of information on Cassandra Clare’s tumblr.

Jocelyn Fray meme for Game of Thrones fans

If you’ve watched Season 2 of Game of Thrones, you’ll get this Lena Headey joke!

Magnus Bane, Jocelyn Fray, and Hodge Starkweather have been cast!

Woo! Here’s some info for you! So exciting!

First, our Magnus Bane is the gorgeous Godfrey Gao:

Cassandra Clare: Godfrey is, in addition to being all gorgeous and stuff, super-talented (his audition was awesome), loves the books, and is, like Magnus, ridiculously tall.

He is also super-nice — we emailed briefly and he said “I’m half Indonesian, because my mom is Peranakan Malaysian And my dad is Shanghainese – Soo hopefully the fans will like me playing Magnus!”

Our Jocelyn is none other than Lena Headey! I’m kind of sad that I don’t really like Jocelyn’s character that much, because I LOVE the actress! She’s known for her role as Cersei in Game of Thrones.

Cassandra Clare: Jocelyn is a really fun character to write. She’s overprotective (but for a reason) and often really unyielding and unsympathetic, but she’s also a heroine who saved the world from Valentine, endured a lot of loss, and can execute some pretty badass moves. Moral ambiguity is always fun to play and who does it better than (Lena).

And lastly, our Hodge is Jared Harris (from Mad Men and Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows)!

Cassandra Clare: Hodge is also a really complicated character. He’s not entirely bad, not entirely good. He’s a brilliant man led down a bad path a long time ago and he can’t turn back, but he does love those kids he tutored...He’s got SAG awards all over the place and I think he’ll really nail Hodge’s moral dilemma.

Well, there you have it! So, as of now, our official City of Bones cast is:

Lily Collins (Clary), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace), Robert Sheehan (Simon), Godgrey Gao (Magnus), Jemima West (Isabelle), Lena Headey (Jocelyn), Jared Harris (Hodge), Kevin Durand (Pangborn) and Robert Maillet (Blackwell).

So who’s ready for Alec? I know I am, hahah! Tell us what you think in the comments!
