SHADOWHUNTER CASTING TALK | Jace, Clary, Simon, Isabelle, Alec, and Luke

So, if you don't know what this is about, basically, after the movie "City of Bones", based on the book series "The Mortal Instruments" by Cassandra Clare (if you don't know what that series is, have you been living under a rock? just kidding :D but really go read it) flopped and failed and stuff, ABC Family decided to make a TV Show out of the books! So yippee!!! 
Let's go in order, shall we? 

MR. Jace Wayland: 
Dominic Sherwood

 To be honest, he's not what I pictured as Jace. Neither was Jamie Campbell-Bower (Jace in the movie), but I suppose he'll look okay if he dyes his hair blond. But if you look at it from a different perspective, he's a pretty darn good Jace! 

MR. Simon Lewis:
Alberto Rosende
I love Simon, so I was personally worried. So when I saw this:

I was worried. And then I saw this:  

And now I'm not too worried. He's a pretty geeky sweet Simon, don't ya think? ;)

MS. Isabelle Lightwood: 
Emeraude Toubia 
Now THIS is a good Isabelle. She looks classy and Isabelle, and she's Latina, but guess what? I DON'T CARE, because in my opinion, she's a great Isabelle! :)

MS. Clary Fray  
Katherine McNamara

In the beginning, everyone thought that Mary Quinn was going to play our Clary, but nope! 

HOLD UP. BEFORE YOU GUYS COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW SHE'S NOT A REDHEAD, she is a redhead; she dyed her hair for her part in The Scorch Trials movie, where she plays Sonia. She's a perfect Clary. Enough said.

MR. Alec Lightwood
Matthew Daddario

I don't really care for Alec, I find him to be snobby, so I don't really care. But when I saw that last name...

Alexandra Daddairo has a brother? 
Call me ignorant, but I was FREAKING SHOCKED. I dunno. 
He's okay, he just looks too happy. Merh.

MR. Luke Garroway
Isaiah Mustafa

Okay, I'm not trying to be racist here, but I never imagined Luke to be African American. There was not indication of him being African American in the books, nor the movie. But I think it's great that the cast has such diverse cultures, and that's great. I'm really not going to judge him until I see him act, but if you look carefully, I can see some Luke in him. I can!

In conclusion, I really think they did a pretty good job at casting, and I can't wait to see Magnus Bane!
