Lining up another role in yet another crazy popular teen book series, Jamie Campbell Bower takes on the next big thing: The Mortal Instruments.
Bower, who is Caius in the Twilight series and Grindelwald in the final two Harry Potter movies, now owns the role of Shadowhunter Jace Wyland in the film based on the Cassandra Clare novels.
The 22 year-old will star opposite Lily Collins, who was cast months ago as Clary Fray.
While the fan favorite, Alex Pettyfer, apparently turned the role down, Bowers casting is causing lots of upset among fans.
Remember no one liked Robert Pattinson for Edward Cullen or Jennifer Lawrence for Katniss Everdeen either. That alone puts Jamie in good company.

The search for the next Peter Parker is over. According to The Cineman Source, Logan Lerman has been tapped to play the awkward teen bitten by a radioactive spider who develops superpowers and becomes the crime fighting Spider-man.
The role was widely sought after and lots of stars had been rumored to take on the action franchise, including Kellan Lutz, Chace Crawford, Daniel Radcliffe and Zac Efron. The director of (500) Days of Summer, Marc Webb is planning on this film being 3-D with the technology from James Cameron’s film Avatar.
Assuming this is true: Who should play his sweetheart, Mary Jane Watson?
Selena Gomez? Demi Lovato? Emma Watson? Tell us who you’d like to see Logan paired with.

Taylor Lautner is potentially the hottest young actor to come out of The Twilight Saga franchise. As much as everyone now talks about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart when it comes to movie projects, Lautner is securing one heck of a commercial future for himself. With starring roles in Cancun, the Max Steel and Stretch Armstrong action hero adaptations, and Northern Lights, (not costarring Tom Cruise however) the actor who just turned 18 is attached to star in Abduction (a Jason Bourne identity in question kind of role) and that pic is up for a bidding war between at least two studios. The big question remains, Lautner is unproven beyond Twilight for bringing an audience to the theater. Will these movies even get made? Is this all just hype for the actor?
Let’s hear what you think – will you go see Taylor Lautner in any of these films? After Twilight is done, do you think you’ll still be interested in him as a character other than Jacob Black?

Emma Watson has been crowned the biggest grossing actress of the 00′s by The Guinness Book of World Records. Thanks to the Harry Potter franchise of films and her voice over work for the animated The Tale of Desperaux, Watson’s films take in more money at release time than any other actress, beating out the likes of Julia Roberts and Reese Witherspoon. Watson will be seen in the final two Harry Potter flicks in 2010 and 2011. Until then, the Brown University freshman is keeping a low profile while studying in the US.

Move over Miley Cyrus, Miranda Cosgrove may just usurp your throne. The Nickelodeon star of iCarly is hot hot hot and her show is now the most popular with kids ages 2 – 14. She is so successful that a movie is being developed for her to star in: a Paramount pictures comedy called How Could You Do This To Me? While Cosgrove continues to star in iCarly, she has been capturing audiences with her charm and her album has done quite well.
“And in the two years the show has been on the air, [producer Dan] Schneider and Cosgrove have turned the product into a ratings behemoth for Nickelodeon, a network that was under significant pressure to replicate the kinds of successes that Disney had with the High School Musical franchise.”
That is quite a coup for Cosgrove. The Disney marketing group is formidable and to have iCarly turn into such a success without that backing shows that she is just as great at capturing attention without all the paparazzi following her.
Cyrus seems to have another year or so left for Hannah Montana and she is moving on to movies (other than the HM features she has been so successful at.) Author Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, Nights in Rodanthe,) is creating a novel to be made into a movie, with Cyrus as the lead. Miley also has a fantastic musical career and life seems to be going great for her. Miranda Cosgrove is moving into that same territory and we hope things go as well for her as they are for Miley Cyrus. Both are talented girls with a lot more to come. I can’t wait to see what both have in store for us.
