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.

Author Cassandra Clare’s book City of Bones will (finally!) be made into a movie. The first in the teen sci-fi/fantasy series The Mortal Instruments, has a script and should start casting fairly soon. Here is the official announcement:
Screen Gems has teamed with Constantin Film and Unique Features to develop the motion picture franchise MORTAL INSTRUMENTS based on The New York Times Bestselling book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Jessica Postigo penned the script which is based on the first book in the series, City of Bones. Constantin Film’s head of Film & TV Martin Moszkowicz will executive produce and Robert Kulzer will produce the project via the Constantin Film banner along with producing partners Michael Lynne, Robert Shaye, and executive producer Dylan Sellers via their Unique Features banner.
In City of Bones, set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager Clary Fray, discovers she is the descendent of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world. When Clary’s mother disappears, she must join a daring group of young Shadowhunters on an adventure, which leads her through a city filled with mischievous fairies, eccentric warlocks, werewolf gangs and other strange creatures.
I loved the books and hope that they get a great director who can pull it off.
Now for the fun part: Who do you want as Clary, Jace, Simon, Alec and Isabelle? Everyone wants Alex Pettyfer for Jace but I think with his parts in both Beastly and I Am Number Four he would be unlikey to take a role in another sci-fi movie. I’d like to see Bonnie Wright for Clary. Any thoughts?
