Report: Jamie Bower Lands Role Of Jace In The Mortal Instruments

|

Camelot star Jamie Campbell Bower will play Jace in The Mortal Instruments, reports Deadline Hollywood. The actor’s people are apparently making “the deal” now, so nothing is official. But for fans of the book (us), this is official enough! Jamie is playing Jace, a buff, blond and arrogant Shadowhunter (he kills evil demons) and will star opposite Lily Collins, who portrays Clary, his love interest/heroine of the 6 book franchise. As a connoisseur of Young Adult fiction, Jace is our favorite love interest by far; beating out Edward Cullen and Peeta Mellark as our personal #1 pick of the hunky, brooding, equally good at kissing and killing guys you find in YA books.  The British actor — who cut his teeth playing Caius in the Twilight franchise — was up against two unknowns for the role: Ed Speelers and Leebo Freeman, both of whom beat him in our poll. Even though he may not be a fan favorite, we’re exciting to see what he brings to the movie. Are you?
