Who would you cast....? Week 3: The Mortal Instruments
« on: October 06, 2011, 05:35 PM »
In honor of our new Bookstore Cafe, we thought we'd start doing other weekly polls/ threads such as "who would you pick to play in this movie?" The thread will run from Saturday to Saturday, with new characters to cast each week.

*I have been slacking a little this week so sorry this one is so late....

Last week's poll winner was The Mortal Instruments

Character list:
 Clary Fray, Jace Wayland, Isabelle and Alec Lightwood, Simon Lewis, Magnus Bane, Lucian (Luke) Graymark

*I only included a small (not complete) list...feel free to cast anyone you would like ;)



I'm also gonna update the poll so be sure to cast a vote for next week's thread  :)

Good suggestion for Clary, I like that actress.

Also I totally wouldn't "Cast" him for Magnus Bane but for some reason when I was reading the books, I kept picturing Jo Koy  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login for him haha.. kind of random

I've thought and thought about this, and damn it, no matter how much I try to find the right actor for Jace, there's no one that completely fits the picture.
Except, maybe, and I don't want you to think I'm cheating, Jess, but this is perhaps the only person who could imo, if you can just imagine him when he was 17, since he's way old now. But I think he might pull Jace off, Johnny Depp. When he was younger, keep in mind. :P

@Aerinn- what is it with you and johnny depp? lol
I'll admit he's a wonderful actor and he's pretty damn cute but i'd picture him as more of a 'magnus bane' than a jace but to each his own (or in this case, her own) ;)

So what's your favorite Johnny Depp movie role?

I don't know lol, I just LOVE him! :P
As for JD as Magnus, hm, hm, hmmm. I'm not sure. I'm positive he can pull of Jace, I mean, okay, he could do the same for Magnus, but I won't have anyone who could be a good Jace then. :S
Favorite JD role, uhm, that's a hard one. I don't think I have one. I loved him as much in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, as I have in say The Astronaut's Wife. Of course, as Jack Sparrow he rocked, no question there. :P So I can't say I have a favorite role for him. :/

Yes, God, I forgot about that one. :/
See, there's just so many roles, and how can you pick one favorite? No, no. I love all. :P

JCB could make a pretty good Alex I think, since he looks like a girl anyway :P

sorry, Aerinn but I don't really think Alec has a 'masculine' side....I think Isabelle is more masculine than he is ;)

LOL...see I had Alec kinda okay-ish boy in my head while reading book, until it turns out he had a crush on Jace and threw jealous fits at Clary. From then on the image turned into a bit of girlish boy and it got firmer after Magnus came into picture....since JCB is the latest girlish boy I've seen (in pics anyway), I thought he'd make a good Alec...too bad he is going to be Jace though :( Ugh can't imagine him pulling off Jace though.

Don't, don't mention that. I thought nothing of him as Alex, but as Jace, god. We've had this discussion before, no? I can feel my hair raising in horror. *shivers*

LOL...we sure did have this conversation before. That's why I said JCB should be Alec NOT Jace. Too bad movie making company people didn't realize it. Wonder how Cassie agreed to it.

She was brainwashed? Abducted by aliens? She's insane? Eh, the list could go on forever. :D But, how could the movie company come to the conclusion he'd be good, that, I have no idea. I mean, they're in the business of movie making, they know what sells stuff. That JCB dude will not sell this movie. No way.

Ahh Cassie took over by pod people, makes much sense now (especially with CoFA), that explains it. But I think it's the money though, yeah I've turned a bit of a cynic and bitter towards authors now (yeah Thanks Becca).

Anyway I think movie company must have become desperate after Alex P's diva fit. Alex was supposedly top in polls as Jace. For me though he didn't look Jace enough - you know - like sarcastic, aloof, with a touch of badboy etc. I don't see that in anybody but the image I have in my head. Jace is pretty tough to cast IMO. :)

Uhh, don't mention BF, I still go off whenever anyone speaks about "Silence".
And yep, exactly my point of view, not just for Jace, but for almost any character from a book, can't find anyone who can be better than the one in my head. I've thought Johnny Depp might, but the more I think about it, the less I see it. :(

LOL....you are not alone in that my friend.

Also I am probably the only one going to say this, but I don't like Johnny Depp one bit. Can't stand him.

That's quite alright, tastes differ after all. I can't stand George Clooney for instance, and I know so many girls who adore him. But eh, that's the way things are.
De gustibus non est disputandum, and all that. :)
