Jamie Campbell Bower cast as Jace Wayland

The wait is over! After weeks of commotion on Twitter and Facebook Screen Gems has finally confirmed it has picked the one.

British actor Jamie Campbell Bower has been chosen to play Jace Wayland in the movie adaptation of Cassandra Clare's novel "City of Bones". Alex Pettyfer, another British actor, was once the fan's favourite for the part but had later fallen from grace. Personally, I'm thrilled! Campbell has the deep, possibly menacing but interesting looks Jace is meant to have. It's no wonder he plays a vampire in the the Twilight saga, you know! And judging by his performances on other films and TV series, albeit they were all smaller roles, I am hoping he will be able to pull off this troubled and quick witted character. Campbell will also be sharing the lead with actress Lily Collins who was cast to play Clary Fray, the main character in the books, a good few weeks ago.

City of Bones is hailed to be the next big book adaption after Harry Potter and Twilight, now that both of are getting to an end. Although the story lines are all paranormal, they could not be more different. Why pick in between fairies, werewolves, vampires, angels, witches and demons when you can have them all? My point exactly. As I am a big fan, I cannot wait to see this on the big screen.

Go Britain, go!

  1. He better get into better physical shape-I have watched Jamie in the series "Camelot," and he looked and acted so wimpy and pitiful as Authur, that I stopped watching that series. He was unbelievable as a warrior and king in the Showtimes adaption. I loved Cassandra Clare's books, but am NOT impressed with Campbell at all as a lead actor. Annoying casting-I guess it's another good book gone to waste :(

  2. I completely understand what you mean, but everyone also thought Robert Pattinson wouldn't pull through as Edward Cullen. I usually give new or young actors the benefit of doubt. Personally I would have loved to see Max Iron as Jace, but that is just me. I guess we will have to wait and see. If he doesn't pull through, he deserves all the criticism. If he does, we will all have to get over it. :-)I am not writing the film off until I watch it, though.

  3. Alex Pettyfer should have been Jace, he has that bad boy vibe, he is sexy and he doesn't look like a girl. I imagined Jace strong, I see a skinny boy. I love the Clary though!
