Freaking Out about Alex Pettyfer Offer to play Jace in The Mortal Instruments!

Ladies and......well, just ladies, I guess......start freaking out!!!  I know we all hated to let ourselves hope, thinking that it couldn't really be possible.  I mean, it just seems like if you want something this badly, it just won't actually happen.  Murphy's Law, right?  But, guess what?????

According to NYmag.com and MTV's Hollywood Crush Alex Pettyfer has been offered the role of JACE WAYLAND!!!

Now, if you've been living under a rock, then I'll tell you Jace is the main, hot, lead character in Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series, and fans of the books have been begging, pleading, and sometimes even screaming for Alex to be cast in this role!  Everyone seems to agree that he is the perfect Jace, and I whole-heartedly agree with everyone (see previous petition....I mean post)!!

All that's left is for Alex to say YES!  Then shooting for the film will hopefully begin in March!  My only worry is that Screen Gems said if Alex doesn't agree, they may nix the movie altogether.  This will not make me happy, and they may just have a riot on their hands.  You can't tease us by getting this close, then yank it away from us.  We will not handle that well.  No, not well at all!




*ALSO*

So, I was a little peeved about the NYmag post on this, because they said this:

The first installment, City of Bones, quickly became a best seller when it was released in 2007, and it’s easy to see why: The books are basically Twilight with demons instead of vampires. Headstrong teen girl as main character? Check! Hot-guy love interest kept at bay by a Terrible Secret? Check! Best guy friend secretly pining in the wings? Check!

Oh, yeah, The Mortal Instruments is EXACTLY like Twilight!  Of course!!  Since it is YA, and paranormal, and.....it has....people in it.......so that makes it practically the same exact storyline!  I'm sorry, have you people even read the books?  That just irritates the CRAP out of me.  BUT nothing can get me down, Alex has been asked!  So, PLEASE, ALEX....SAY YES!!!

Dear Alex,
Will you please play Jace Wayland.  Check yes or no.


  • yes
  • no

Your, possibly oldest but that doesn't make me creepy at all, fan,

Andye.....and the rest of the female population of the planet

  3. I actually feel kind of bad for Alex, I mean what if he honestly doesn't want to do the role (I'm a total MI fangirl so I can ask the honest question, I'm not trolling here, I swear)? or if he has other commitments and can't? I mean, the fandom is putting a lot of pressure on the poor guy. Though, it will be a major bummer if it doesn't happen ;)

  4. AHHHHHH!!!!!!

    But I agree with you -- I was like, "What?!" Mortal Instruments and Twilight are not alike, except in that they have a similar fan base.

  6. Megan, don't feel too sorry for him, he's being paid good money to have girls falling all over him. Plus, probably doing what he loves. I'm sure if he doesn't want to do it, he'll say no......he just probably should move and never let anyone know where he lives if he does......^_^

    Book Nerds, yes, same fan base, but that's like saying that Star Wars is like Lord of the Rings. Same fans, still totally different story :D Right?

    Jamie, see my previous comment....haha ^^^

  7. I just had to stop by to give a shout out for us guys, too (well, the gay ones anyway!)

    We want Alex too!
    We want Alex too!
    We want Alex too!

  8. Seriously?! Twilight with demons instead of vampires?! *pulls out my hair* *takes a deep breath* You know what? Never mind. WE know what we should know about the series. And we keep our finger crossed to see Alex as Jace. Well that's a reason to freak out!;)

  9. Dj * waves* join in ....lol!!!

    Well there is the possibility he may not want the role, you know fame, 6 movies ( possibly) totally on every mag cover like Robert Pattinson was..but I think if offered he would say yes.

    um...you may not be his oldest fan..looks in mirror * sheepish* and not at all pervy or creepy. Just know he is so totally right for the part. Lily Collins = Clary ( love it) Alex Pettyfer = Jace ( uber love it) and hmm I personally love Logan Lerman = Simon. ( the perfect 3) .

    Alex pleeeeaasse say yes:D

    Fingers and toes all crossed:D

  10. My daughter has been wanting to read these books. How many are there in the series?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ooooh yay! Everybody go read that last CoFA teaser and picture Alex as Jace (as if you weren't already right?)!! Please say yes Alex!

    ReplyDelete
  12. OH MY GOD. He better say YES !!!!!!

  13. Kari- There are three in the series, but she's about to release three more. So, it kind-of ended, but people loved it so much she agreed to do three more of them. :) City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, then the next one is going to be City of Fallen Angels.

    THEN, she has a prequel series that she also released that has some of the same themes, but really is very different, called The Infernal Devices. The first is out and is Clockwork Angel.

  14. Thanks for sharing this info! That's so cool that he was offered the part. I hope he accepts too (though I wouldn't mind Jeremy Sumpter in the part either)!

    ReplyDelete
  15. YES, Novels on the Run!

    Lily, Alex & Logan = the MI Trifecta.

    Here's hoping!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Alex must accepted, if he does not we kidnap him until he agrees to play Jace!

  17. I'm really concerned that they only plan on making the movie if Alex P is in it! I hope this isn't the case. As much as I love Alex P., I would still want a movie even if he wasn't in it.

  19. Okay I was all for him, I mean he's on my Jace button, but over time I have realised that a new fresh face should get the part. He seems to be getting all the parts from popular novels and I think it's best if he doesn't do this. I'm a little tired of him really. Plus they could probably do with using someone a little younger looking for Jace. So I don't get why everyone's fussing for him to do the part. Just as long as the guy chosen is a good actor I'm good.

    That always annoys me, why must everything be compared to twilight!!? This series and twilight are nothing alike at all, urgh!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh oh oh oh oh oh! I didn't even know about this! Yeah, I'm one of the many that's been rooting for Alex from the start. I really hope he agrees to it. If not though, I'd be completely outraged with them getting rid of the movie altogether. I *need* this movie. I'm so looking forward to it!

    "Twilight with demons instead of vampires." Uh... no?! I really don't see that many similarities! I'm not saying that to insult either of the series but the things that they "compared" fit so many of the books out there. Come on. Must we compare everything to Twilight?

  21. Alex's nose looks crooked! I think I prefere the pics where he's not wearing a shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh my gosh. I just flipped out. And died. Thanks a bajillion for posting this. I really hope accepts !

    ReplyDelete
  23. PLEASE say yes!!! There isn't anyone else that comes remotely close to being Jace Wayland. I've always wanted Alex to have this role.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, it only makes sense as that's who everyone was picturing when they read the book.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, I have been living under a rock! Crossing my fingers for you . . . er him. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Nowwwww, if he says no... We'll have to find him and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!!
    AHHHHHHHH!!!!! Freaking out!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. WOW! This just put a great end to my day!! *crosses fingers*

  28. someone commented Logan Lerman as Simon...

    YES! THAT'D BE THE BEST!

    I'm not a big fan of TMI or twilight for that matter, but have to agree that THEY'RE NOT SIMILAR AT ALL haha this celebrity bloggers need to do WAY MORE research if they'll blog about a book instead of the latest Heidi and Spencer's fight :|

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ok, I'm not going to rant about how they compared TMI to Twilight. It's always comparing to Twilight. Pffft. All that matters is ^THIS.

    Alex please say YES. YES. YES.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I haven't read The Mortal Instruments yet, but it's definitely on my to-read list, I've heard so many goods things on this series that I can't wait to start reading it :D Also, I'd like to say that I REALLY like Alex, just so you know :P so... say yes Alex :D
    Oh, how I hate when they compare others books with Twilight :@ the same happens with Vampire Academy, every time I read the line 'it's just like Twilight' or 'the new Twilight' I go into crazy-mode. Why the heck do they have to compare it with damn Twilight?! Twilight isn't as good ¬¬ *sighs* Had to say it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you all for FREAKING OUT with me! And for thinking that they're a bunch of idiots for calling TMI the same as Twilight!! :D
