Has Jace Been Cast?

We normally do not comment on any book or movie rumors unless we have confirmed with the source (ie. Cassie, Simon & Schuster or Screen Gems) that they are true. Today Twitter is a buzz with the news that Screen Gems has cast Jamie Bower as Jace. We've received a lot of comments about this on Twitter, which stemmed from this article here and here, asking us what we thought.

Here's what we know, that as of right now this is a RUMOR. It's a rumor because we have not heard or read a confirmation on this from Screen Gems. We have refrained from commenting on casting until we've heard official news from the studio. I have always pictured someone like Alex P as Jace. As I said on Twitter, Jamie is not who I pictured as Jace, BUT that does not mean Jamie or whomever is cast can't become Jace on the big screen. I'm not big on comparing things to Twilight, but a lot of people complained about Rob becoming Edward and then ended up loving him for how well he portrayed him on the big screen.

MM's is a team divided, Sophie has said for awhile now that she would love to see Jamie play Jace. I will say that just because Jamie or whomever is cast as Jace is not who I pictured, doesn't mean he can't do a great job with bringing Jace to life. I'm going to trust Screen Gems knows who will fit the part well.

Here's a picture of Jamie with runes that makes him look a bit more Jace like. You can find the picture here. What do you guys think?


Either way, I am anxiously awaiting some sort of casting news. I can't wait to see TMI on the big screen. Please remember to be respectful in your comments :)

  1. I always pictured Alex P. as Jace as well, but I have to say I would be thrilled if Jamie was cast!

  2. He isn't how I picture Jace, either. When twitter was nuts with info about Ben Stone as Jace I thought he looked perfect for the part (or perhaps a close second to Alex P.).

  3. I saw Jamie at a New Moon event here in Spain in october 2009. He was the nicest guy ever, he has sort of a Jace look and HE IS FUNNY, which suits whoever has to play Jace. But we can't judge him as Jace because we haven't seen him, and anyways (as it was seen with Robert Pattinson's casting), this initial days of casting won't have anything to do with the movie's final result. #TeamJace !

  5. If he is going to be Jace I'm hoping he'll get a little bit of muscle tone. =/

  7. I;m so not feeling that. He just doesn't cut it for me, he's not sexy and rugged enough.

  8. I knew from thr start Jamie was perfect for the role. I've followed his career throughly and not just as a Twilight fan and can confidently say that Jamie is incredibly talented and can play any role. He is a lot more than just a pretty face. I'm overjoyed: JamieisJace!!

  9. Honestly, I can totally see him playing Jace. I'm kinda sick of Alex P with his attitude *no offence*. But Jamie is cute. This picture of him kinda reminds me of Leonardo DiCaprio during his Titanic-Romeo-and-Juliet days. Don't ya think so?

  10. Hollywood would have to do a lot of work with him. Aren't there any hot blond guys left who could really act or is Screen Gems working on a very low budget?

  11. if this wimp is going to play jace, i will cry even more than I did at the end of COG...:(

  12. Nope! I hope he's not it. :( He is not how I picture Jace at all. Donna

  13. I'm going to cry if this is true. No Jamie no!!!!!

  14. He's not how I pictured Jace. Hopefully he can pull it off but I don't know... :-/

  15. Jamie is a perfect choice! He ist adorable. I hope the rumours are TRUE!

  16. He looks like a girl. That isn't a bad thing, but Jace struck me as a he-man.

  17. Well I hope its not true. It didn't necessarily have to be Alex P for me I'd have been fine with Douglas Booth who can really act, but I definitely wouldn't have picked Bower.

    He does seem like he could pull off humor and he's cute enough (though he needs to do some bulking up, but that's done easily enough), but I'm not sure about him pulling off angsty.

    He wasn't in Harry Potter much enough for me to really think about whether he was good or not.

    I haven't seen Twilight and never plan to.

    I've been watching him in Camelot and haven't really been impressed with him at all. When trying to be angsty he just comes across as pouty and when he's supposed to be angry he just comes across as a petulant child. He's just not very believeable. I gave up watching after two episodes. Though admittedly I don't think that was his fault entirely, the show has a ton of great actors and really its just a big bore fest.

    I hate to say it, because I was really excited to see these movies being made and looked forward to watching them. I was happy about Lily being cast, but if this is true, its pretty much enough for me to say pass to the movies.

    Jace is a super important character, as is Clary if you get one of them wrong, then it isn't going to work no matter how great the rest of the cast is.

    For me at least, he doesn't have the acting chops for the role. You need more than a pretty face to pull off Jace.

  18. I loved Jamie in Sweeney Todd.
    "I feel you Johanna" sigh...his singing voice made my heart melt.

    Unfortunately, I can't see him being Jace rumor or not. But alas, the wonders of the big screen cease to amaze me. There's make up and all sorts of things they can do to transform him. I really don't think he's that bad of a choice. If the rumor is true...kudos to Jamie for getting the part.

  19. I am seriously disappointed!! I was hoping anyone but him when I saw the three actors that auditioned. He's too girlish looking and not bad-ass enough. I hope he hires a personal trainer cause he needs to work on getting some muscles!

    I have a feeling this is true... but like you said... nothig is official yet. My heart literally sank... as I was still holding out hope that Alex would get the role. I just hope Screen Gems knows what they're doing in casting JCB (if the rumour is true). I can't help but be a disappointed. But I'll still see the movie and try to keep an open mind. :\

  21. ok, now all in one post!! XD

    I just think this dude is not as HOT as Jace! sniff! he really needs to go to gym, fix his hair and some fashion emergency would come in handy! nothing that cannot be fixed but see to believe! sniff! I really hope there is a better option! and thanks lord this is just a rumor!!!! however we all know that he is one of the finalist to take over the role of Jace so... hell.... he could still being chosen!!

    Also, Im watching Camelot and yes I do like him in there but seriously, I just dont see him as Jace the GOD!! Let's keep waiting!

  22. He will be fabulous! The first two epis of "Camelot" were just awful scripts...then in epi 3 the writing became better and surprise so did everyone's acting. Jamie delivered such a credible performance two epis ago when he told Guinevere that he loved her as he went off to battle. I immediately thought of Jace in CoG when he asked Clary to "sleep with him". Jamie's performance was perfect -- as Arthur, he was determined, heart-broken but didn't care because he wanted Guinevere to know.

    I'm looking forward to seeing him as Jace.

  23. I think we are all disappointed that its not Alex P. in the role.
    But Jamie has a lot of acting experience compared to Alex P. I do think Jamie has the ability to be cocky and sexy. Remember Taylor Lautner in that horrid wig in Twilight & how he transformed quite a bit for New Moon? Let's give Jamie a chance to wow the fandom!!!

  24. I definitely see someone like Alex P playing Jace, but I think Jamie has the skills to transform into Jace on the big screen.

    I know a lot of people are upset it's not Alex P, but Alex turned the role down to do another movie.

    I know this has been mentioned a few times, but Rob and Taylor weren't strong contenders w/ fans of Twilight and they did an amazing job with bringing Edward and Jacob to life. If Jamie is cast, I think Jamie is going to surprise a lot of fans, myself included.

  25. He will be a perfect Jace. Jamie is talented and a very funny person . He is exactly how I pictured Jace and hope the rumor is true. With all the various sites reporting I am inclined to say it is ..but I will wait to hear it from his Tweets.

  26. I think he could be a good cast for the role but may have to buff just a little...he has that im better then u and we both know it look about him...but the way i figure it is that the directors and producers know what they r looking for and im sure they have done their research...Either way i will be one of the first in line for a ticket...Lily Collins looks like a good choice for Clary she has that fragile but strong look about her

  27. I think Jamie is a pretty decent actor. Not EXACTLY how I pictured Jace, but we could definitely do worse! I think, if the rumors are true, that Jamie could live up to the job.

  28. Oh no I'm seriously praying this is a rumor because I will literally cry if it's not. Jamie just doesn't look how I pictured Jace...he's not rugged enough. Please let it be anyone else!
