The only thing we know about Logan Lerman is that at just 19 years old, it’s creepy that we think he’s cute. But we can’t help ourselves – we’ve gotten it in our head that he MUST play Simon in the upcoming Mortal Instruments movie and we just can’t let it go. Now we’re a bit intrigued with wee Logan, and so we’re naturally curious about these pictures of him and his Percy Jackson co-star Alexandra Daddario out in NYC last week. She’s six years older than him, so surely nothing’s happening between them…but wouldn’t it be awesome if something was? (Is there? Someone give us the scoop!) Next up for Logan is The Three Musketeers this summer. Kinda seems like he’s on the verge of blowing up, eh?

The fourth book in The Mortal Instruments franchise, City of Fallen Angels, dropped yesterday (Do books drop? Is that a thing?), making this the perfect week to begin obsessing over who to cast in the film version of the popular series. Lily Collins is already set as Clary, the books’ redheaded heroine, and Alex Pettyfer is clearly the fan favorite to place Jace, Clary’s – *SPOILER ALERT* – brother/love interest/hot angel dude/not really her brother. Yes, for those of you who are new to the franchise, you read that right – brother AND love interest. It’s even weirder than the Jacob-Renesmee creepfest in Breaking Dawn!
So let’s have it, Mortal Instruments fans. We want to know who you envision in these parts. We’ve put our initial picks in the gallery below, but we’re easily swayed and enjoy spending hours pondering these things. We’ll collect your favorites and roll out some polls in the coming weeks. Until then, let’s start casting!
- Jace: Alex Pettyfer, Hunter Parrish
- Simon: Logan Lerman, Mike Bailey
- Isabelle: Kaya Scodelario
- Alex: Nick Hoult
- Luke: Kyle Chandler
- Valentine: Christoph Waltz
