Woo! Here’s some info for you! So exciting!
First, our Magnus Bane is the gorgeous Godfrey Gao:
Cassandra Clare: Godfrey is, in addition to being all gorgeous and stuff, super-talented (his audition was awesome), loves the books, and is, like Magnus, ridiculously tall.
He is also super-nice — we emailed briefly and he said “I’m half Indonesian, because my mom is Peranakan Malaysian And my dad is Shanghainese - Soo hopefully the fans will like me playing Magnus!”
Our Jocelyn is none other than Lena Headey! I’m kind of sad that I don’t really like Jocelyn’s character that much, because I LOVE the actress! She’s known for her role as Cersei in Game of Thrones.
Cassandra Clare: Jocelyn is a really fun character to write. She’s overprotective (but for a reason) and often really unyielding and unsympathetic, but she’s also a heroine who saved the world from Valentine, endured a lot of loss, and can execute some pretty badass moves. Moral ambiguity is always fun to play and who does it better than (Lena).
And lastly, our Hodge is Jared Harris (from Mad Men and Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows)!
Cassandra Clare: Hodge is also a really complicated character. He’s not entirely bad, not entirely good. He’s a brilliant man led down a bad path a long time ago and he can’t turn back, but he does love those kids he tutored...He’s got SAG awards all over the place and I think he’ll really nail Hodge’s moral dilemma.
Well, there you have it! So, as of now, our official City of Bones cast is:
Lily Collins (Clary), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace), Robert Sheehan (Simon), Godgrey Gao (Magnus), Jemima West (Isabelle), Lena Headey (Jocelyn), Jared Harris (Hodge), Kevin Durand (Pangborn) and Robert Maillet (Blackwell).
So who’s ready for Alec? I know I am, hahah! Tell us what you think in the comments!
