Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

I think the movie will be okay with the actor that was chosen, but I wish Alex pettyfer would've played Jace instead. I think Alex was closer to what I imagined Jace to look like. I guess I hate it too :smileysad:

Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

I agree I am not happy about it and was also hoping Alex Pettyfer would play Jace.  I don't want to go in hating it  but I think this was a huge casting mistake-I'm hoping to be proven wrong though

Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

I wanted Alex Pettyfer to play Jace too. But they did offer him the role, he just turned it down. 

Hopefully they will pick the other actors that fit with the other characters in the series

Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

I am ok with it. he wasnt my first choice but I think he will do good and he will look more like Jace once they bulk him up and change his hair and eye color. did you know that Jamie Bower was somewhere at the top of Cassandra Clare's list for who she wanted to play Jace. she is very happy with the casting. she saw the auditions he did and thinks he is perfect for him. and there is no actor out ther that everyone would approve of for Jace. I liked Alex in the beginning but I think he now looks too old.

Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

I wanted Alex Pettyfer also, but he was such a jerk about the whole thing from what I heard. So I think Jamie could actually work as well if not better than Alex! At least he won't have the attitude problem. I can actually picture him as Jace with a couple of changes- not bad casting compared to some other painful castings errors out there in other movies....

Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

No you are most def. not alone!  I just don't find Jamie attractive at all & Alex well he is just as sexy as they come & that to me is one big thing about Jace.  I can see Alex playing Jace & when I picture Jamie I just don't see it.  But like what someone else said Alex was offered the role but turned it down.  I have to say I am shocked by the casting of Jace but want to see how Jamie does before I truely say I don't like him as Jace.  Hell  I was so excited when Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward & now I can't stand the guy or the series really and I don't want the same thing to happen with TMI cause it is one of my favorite series.

I agree! I felt the same way about Pattinson. I really dont want this to become the next twilight. Its my FAVORITE series. It makes me sad :smileysad:

I know he is a jerk but I still want him to play Jace. Its better than someone who looks far from what Jace is suppose to look like. I can't picture it. I don't want this movie to happen PERIOD. I wanted to cry the first time I heard its gonna be made into a movie. Now im worried about the rest of the casting

Your right Alex Pettyfer would have bee better. But I guess Jamie Cambell-Bower will do.

Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

I kind of hate Jace with a fiery passion that could battle the sun -- and win. At this point I'm just scared they're going to cast some really ugly dweeb as Simon. Now, that would crush me. This Jamie guy seems decent enough, but because he's playing Jace I so do not like him.

Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

I would've loved for Alex to be Jace but I'm kinda glad he's not because he's already going to be in the i am number 4 movies so I think it might be better to have some different actors out there

Re: JACE HAS BEEN CAST

Movie adaptations of books are just never going to be what everyone wants or envisioned. Yea alex is probably sexier but after watching some of that camelot show, i think jamie could have the charisma to pull it off. I dont see what makes people say he doesnt fit the role at all but maybe i just pictured jace more like this guy than other people did =\
