Books into Movies: The Mortal Instruments (Kevin Zegers Could be Cast as Alec)

cityofbonescover-square - 150

Casting for The Mortal Instruments has been going full force. Alec is my favorite character in the books, so of course I've been anticipating his casting choice the most. According to Hollywood Crush and Just Jared, Kevin Zegers has joined the cast as the young Shadowhunter in love with his best friend, Jace. However, this has yet to be confirmed by the studio or Cassandra Clare.

Kevin Zegers is honestly one of my all time favorite actors! The only concern I have is that maybe he's a little old, since he is 27. But I know he can act and I know he can bring Alec to life. I hope this isn't a rumor and it will be confirmed because I think Kevin Zegers is one of the best potential actors for Alec :)

What do you think? Did you picture Alec like Kevin Zegers? Thoughts below!


  1. Well, I didn't read the books and I have nothing to say about this election, but some friends, who have read the books, hate the choice. Their thought is that Kevin Zegers is cute, but they think that Kevin won't look good in the movie because is too old for the paper of Alec (between other reasons)

    1. That's my main concern too. He will probably look really old compared to the other actors.

  3. Ok so. I have no idea who Alec is *I really need to read book one ASAP* but I love Kevin Zegers! He's such a cutie. Whenever I think of him I instantly imagine him from Air Bud.
