New Magnus Bane Contender in Simon Raymond?

With filming on ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ set to begin in just about three months, casting is in full swing and plentiful movie news is surely on the horizon.

What has emerged as hot conversation surrounding the film is the role of Magnus Bane.

But it looks like Shannon has some competition.

Simon Raymond responded to one of our tweets about Magnus:

So has Raymond auditioned for Magnus?

Raymond has had roles in several television shows, including Fringe and Call Me Fitz, but is a relatively unknown talent at this time.

Check out his demo reel:

What do you think of Simon? Who would you rather see as Magnus–Simon or Shannon? Sound off in the comments!
