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!
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!!!
Will you please play Jace Wayland. Check yes or 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
