Gossip Girl’s Kevin Zegers joins Lily Collins in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
Casting is well underway for one of the next big young adult franchises to hit the screens in THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES, and today we addKevin Zegers (TV’s Gossip Girl) to the cast. Kevin Zegers is set to play Alec Lightwood, who is the gay brother of the whip carrying Shadowhunter Isabelle (Jemima West), Alec is also apparently in love with Jace (Jamie Campbell-Bower) as is Clary (Lily Collins). Though I’m not familiar with the book or series, I expect there will be some uncomfortable situations between the Gossip Girl alum, Jace and Clary.
THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES follows teenager Clary Fray who finds out she is a descendant of a group called the Shadowhunters who are here to protect the world from demons. Along with Gossip Girl’s Kevin Zegers, Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell-Bower, THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES will star: Kevin Durand, Robert Sheehan, Lena Headey, Jared Harris and Jemima West. Directed by Harald Zwart the film is set to open in theaters on August 23rd, 2013. (Just Jared)
