Shivani Benjamin Stone, Alek from The Nine Lives of Chloe King. He's got the SEXIEST accent ever! Irresistible.. riiiight? (;
I know JCB's Jace I think he'll do an awesome job at the role, but I just wanna know your opinions.

He would have been ok but Alex Pettyfer would have been better.


AlbertaJenn I think Jamie will be perfect!


Nurlely Alex Pettyfer is the perfect Jace. He's got all the aspects Jace has.
But hey! Jamie has been cast as Jace. And Jamie is a better actor than Alex Pettyfer. So no matter there are some MI's fans who think otherwise, it will not change the fact that Jamie is Jace.

So no matter who do you think will be suitable as Jace, it is a bit useless.


Kania Yeah, i think Alex will be perfect, Ben looks too good, not bad looks like Jase. Jase is bad boys

He's good, but JCB is like freaking perfect...


purplemunchkim Well, we already have our Jace so I don't think there's really any point in knowing if Ben Stone will be good or not.

But just to answer the question, physically the second picture can be Jace, but with acting(?)... not really sure.


Sindre Alexander Ellingsen No, he's just one of those "Oh, I'm so HOT guys!"... He's supposed to be more nerdy!

I'm tired of those guys!

Me too!! Jamie is our Jace. we FINALLY got one and HE IS FREAKIN PERFECT!!!(sorry.. I have the Jace obsession disorder..:D:D:D:D)


Emily Ew no. This guys would SUUUCK as Jace. Sorry, but I just dont think he's got the.... Jace look. His smile's all wrong, and his hair isn't right. No, I'm glad Jamie got the role, he'll do faaaan-freakin-tastic at it!


Daniella Alex Pettyfer would have been AMAZING! I'm so sad they chose Jamie. I just can't see him playing Jace.

Brigid ✩ Well, I can't say Jamie really looks how like I pictured Jace. However, he's a good actor; apparently when Cassandra Clare saw his audition tape, she thought it was so good she cried.

If anyone has doubts, read this: http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2011/06...

Anyway, the point is, Cassandra Clare is really happy. And it's her character. So I'm happy. :)

Sure, Alex Pettyfer is attractive and all, but he's not a great actor.

Yeah, I'd pick acting potential over looks anyday!


Daisy sanchez Not what i picture Jace to be but if he can act thats just great

Same here. ;)


Christina Looking at the second picture, I think he would look good as Jace. I know nothing of his acting, though.

yeah,, i love that second pic.


Mariela You people have to get over with it!!!! Jamie will be Jace!


Nurlely Jamie is Jace whether some readers are still grudging over him. You could still fantasize about any other actors as Jace Wayland, but the fact is no one else but Jamie will play Jace in Mortal Instruments movie...:)


Rochelle I personally don't like JCB as Jace. I think that there are other actors who could portray Jace better. But the casting is done and we can't do anything about that now.
Alex Pettyfer is my ideal Jace but I must say that Benjamin Stone would also make a great Jace.


Nurlely Benjamin Stone will also be a perfect Jace although Alex is my Jace. But Jamie will play Jace...so I just wish for the best...:)

excuse me but jamie campbell bower can't act as well and he's a total ugly freak-show, alex pettyfer on the other-hand is (in my dreams) the best jace ever. i'm still really excited to see the movie though! sounds good.


message 23: by Zoe (new) - rated it 5 stars

Zoe since alex pettyfer is my perfect jace, i can't really picture anyone else but benjamin stone could maybe take 2nd place

Excuse me too...LOL!
You can have your own opinion regarding Alex Pettyfer. And keep it since Alex is not playing Jace, but Jamie is. Alex's face is perfect as Jace but he did not play well in his previous movies.

I so agree Alex Pettyfer is way hotter than JCB and Benjamin Stone


message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

OMG!! i like him but i think that the best Jace Wayland is Alex Pettyfer1 he simply has jace written all over him. he is soo dreamy and like perfect idk why jamie campbell bower got the part, i mean i like him but i do not see him as jace wayland. Jace is tall, muscular and seems like dreamy and well jaime is just tall and blond :/


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

JCB got the part because he can actually act. He completely blew Cassandra Clare away with his portrayal of Jace. So yeah, he is Jace now. He is an awesome Jace. There is no changing that.


Nurlely I think Alex Pettyfer'a appearance is what Jace looks like. But Jamie has got the role...so it will be no one but Jamie. We could be happy or mad but it is what it is.

As for Alex Pettyfer. He will play Daniel Grigori from Fallen series. Daniel is an extremely gorgeous fallen angel. A sublimely gorgeous, with blond hair and grey-violet eyes.

I agree times a million!!! :)


Sarah I think he would be a good Jace, but I think the guy from Number 4 would be perfect!!!!!!


Samantha Personally, I don't think that Alex is all that hot. and his last name sounds so much like petophile that it bugs me... But he would still be a great Jace. Benjamin Stone looks like a Jace from the pictures, but they make people look a lot hotter than they are in pictures.


Sarah All I know is he has to be Hot!!!!!!!!

Darlene I knew this would be who you were talking about when I saw the title of this post and yes yes yes. I love Alek, he reminds me so much of Jace and when he's in all black (which is most of the time) I'm just like *gasp* "shadowhunter!" I'm alright with JCB though, Cassandra Clare loves him


Merri Kayla Lia Wayland Malfoy wrote: "He would have been ok but Alex Pettyfer would have been better."

I agree with that. After watching him in I am number 4. He would have been a great Jace.

Thank you for posting this. I didnt knoe that the Fallen series was being made into movies too! Wow I'm almost finished with Passion Now next year is going to be the year of the angels.

Glad that you like Fallen series too. I have finished reading Passion and am desperately waiting for Rapture. You can read Clockwork Prince and Iron Knight (from Iron Fey series) next...:)


Amazanam OMG! I WAS REALLY REALLY hoping someone would point him out as Jace. I mean he already plays a bay-boy character in Nine Lives, so he's a good option for Jace.


Sarah Yeah just finished the fallen sieres and was happy that i finished but have to wait until the next book comes out!!! :( And just one question.....Is Nine Lives a show sieres or a movie? Because I want to watch it and see what you guys are saying would be best. I think Alex will be a good Jace because he is dark, mysterious, afraid of love, and he has that deep voice that I imagened Jace would have.


Sarah Thank You J_Byrd!!:)


Sarah :) I looked it up, but they had two different Nine Lives sieres and I don't know if it is the Chronicles or the other one that had a wacky name. Do any of you guys know the Actor's name by any chance?:)

Sarah Ok I did look at the right one! Yeah he seems to have alot of Jace character in him. Well, if we had the runes "A partner" its called then we can mix Alex with Benjamin and create the perfect Jace. How does that sound?:)lol

I just really really wish they would have considered him!!


Breanna he looks exactally how i imagined alec...


Sarah LOl just i haven't seen the sieres, but I will go on hulu later and watch some clips!:)
