Three more stills have been released through the MortalMovie instagram, ask the official Sony Pictures profile for the City of Bones movie adaptation hitting theaters August 23rd of this year.
I showed you Robert Sheehan as Simon Lewis and Jemima West as Isabelle Lightwood a few days ago and now I have a few more to share with you all:
Monday’s still was a picture of Kevin Zegers, from the Air Bud series, Dawn of the Dead and Gossip Girl, as Alec Lightwood, the older brother of Isabelle Lightwood and the best friend of Jace Wayland. Alec also is the parabatai to Jace as well. Parabatai are a pair of warriors that are closer than brothers, bound together to fight and for the ultimate friendship. I think Kevin Zegers is adorable and he does have that dark hair and blue eyes. Not at all what I had pictured for Alec at all. I never pictured Alec to show his bare arms; sounds silly but Alec is so lacking in confidence in himself. He’s in love with Jace, he’s in love with Magnus but he can’t admit either and he can’t admit he’s gay. But I really like Kevin Zegers as Alec. Alec is my favorite character after Jace and this picture was definitely drool worthy.
Yesterday the still released was of Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace Wayland. Honestly, I’m happy and accepting of the casting of Jamie as Jace. For a loooooooooooong time, I was not okay with it in the slightest. I was like, ugh, Jamie is SO not Jace. But I like Jamie and I think he’ll do a good job so this was a fun picture to see. I think the part of this picture that was the most exciting was that this was the first chance we really got to see what a seraph blade looked like. We got a super fast quick glimpse of it during the teaser trailer but it wasn’t enough, of course. Seeing this picture was awesome and I really want a seraph blade now. Its just so badass looking.
Today, we FINALLY got to see the super insanely sexy Godfrey Gao as Magnus Bane. Gao has not appeared in any trailers or anything. This is the first released picture of him as Magnus EVER. And they did not disappoint. I know a bunch of people who are disappointed because he isn’t super glittery, his hair isn’t all spiky and he isn’t wearing rainbow pants or neon blue tight pants. I get it. But he looks sexy as hell and as soon as I saw this picture, I felt extreme jealously that I was not Alec Lightwood, who totally gets to make out with this fine piece of warlock. I know a lot of people aren’t really that happy with this but I totally am. It may not be exactly what I pictured in the book but Gary Oldman wasn’t what I pictured for Sirius, or Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen but they both ended up impressing me just like this picture is already impressing me. And not just because he’s totally hot…though most because he’s totally hot. Whew.
I’ll be keeping you updated as more stills are releaseds :)
