It looks like City of Bones may have found it’s Alec! According to reports it’s looking like actor Kevin Zegers may have landed the role. See excerpt from Cinema Blend below!
The Mortal Instruments series follows Clary Fray, a modern-day teen who learns she’s the descendent of a long line of demon hunters. She’s soon drawn into a dangerous world she didn’t know existed. If all goes as planned, the film will arrive in theaters next August (8/23/2013). Today Just Jared reported that Kevin Zegers has been cast in the role of Alec in the film. Like Clary and Jace, Alec Lightwood is a Shadowhunter. He’s also the sibling of Isabelle, who – according to what author Cassandra Clare posted on her blog last month – is set to be played by French actress Jemima West (The Borgias). Clare has yet to post an update commenting on Zegers’ casting, but assuming it’s all set in stone, it seems likely that she’ll weigh in on this update soon enough.
So, assuming this is a done deal, what do you think of Kevin as Alec? Good choice? Let us know!
