MTV started a petition to get the British actor to play Jace Wayland, a Shadowhunter in The Mortal Instruments trilogy. It seems as thought MTV and every Cassandra Clare fans pleas to get Pettyfer as the Shadowhunter with the looks of an angel and a roguish attitude, have been heard.
Cassandra Clare has said: ‘I wanted to wait till I could have an official chat with the studio folks before I said anything, somy small contribution is: I know Alex has met with the director, Scott Stewart,several times; I know he read the TMI books over the holiday sand really liked them and liked Jace, and his representatives are negotiating making a deal for the role of Jace. At this point it’s all about the deal, which really doesn’t have anything to do with me, so I stand back and wait for news like the rest of you.’
I know that TMI fans won’t budge from their computers just incase Alex makes his decision.
If the news is good, we can throw a party Magnus Bane style (minus anyone turning into a rat) and if the news is bad well we’re going to go on the rampage like Valentine at a Downworlder rave.
