We might have a new Jace contender in Ben Stone who is “getting my Jace look down”

The hottest role in Hollywood right now is shadowhunter Jace Wayland in "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" movie adaptation. Now it looks like we might have a new actor in the mix, Benjamin Stone. Stone tweeted the following with this photo:

Could Ben Stone be in the running for Jace?

In my trailer, bored... Getting my Jace look down

Since everything is rumor and speculation at this point, the question becomes: could he make a good Jace? Stone is a relative newcomer to the acting scene, having previously starred in ABC Family's "10 Things I Hate About You" and BBC's "Randall and Hopkirk." He will be starring in ABC Family's "The Nine Lives of Chloe King," which premieres on June 14.

Here’s a promo from his new show, “The Nine Lives of Chloe King.”

Here are a couple of interviews:

The fan reaction to Stone possibly being in contention has been nothing but positive.

Does Ben Stone have the Jace look?

I’m shaking watching videos from the nine lives of chloe king… girls, it’s him… — @citedestenebres

Very Jaceilicious 😉 — @vcatrb

Wow he has the Jace look! I like him 🙂 — @sharicross721

 I really hope he got to audition. I think it’s the first time I can actually picture someone else as Jace besides Alex Pettyfer. — @GAF06

Why hello Mr Herondale !! — @aureliashadow

omg yes!!! He looks like a Jace he just needs muscle!!! — @andi3mari3

i really really hope he has a chance for jace! — @CassieWayland

OMG Cassie!! I would swoon and die of pleasure if @BenJStone played Jace!!!!! Please! Please!!!??? — @aisylaphoenicia

I WANT HIM. That’s Jace. And he’s British *faints” – @deetrishsan

On Wednesday morning, Stone took to Twitter to thank the fans for their support:

I teased Stone that he had no idea what he was getting into with this TMI fandom and he playfully responded:

You can follow Ben on Twitter @BenJStone.

Thanks to Katie at for the heads up!

  1. Breathe!! He looks good, no?! The picture frame pic of him is weird, and he looks weird in it, but looks niiiiiice here. I can’t believe they are still auditioning. Come on!

  2. HIM! YES! *jumps for joy!*… but he better know how to act.

  3. He will be starring in “The Nine Lives of Chloe King” on ABC Family this summer.

    • Really? Cool. I’ve been wanting to watch the show for a while now, so I guess I’ll just have to wait and see. :]

  4. *takes a chance to look at other photos* now, I have no idea how I feel… hahaa :]

  5. Now him I could live with :D…as long as he can act the part of course. But I could definitely see him playing Jace compared to the other 3 (Ed, Jamie and Leebo). He fits the unknown criteria, has blondish/curly hair and has a great bod. If Alex is not option anymore (which looks that way), I think he would be a good fit ;).

  6. If Ben was such a great actor wouldn’t he steer clear of tv rolls? It seems like a lot of actors only take tv when they can’t get anything else. I REALLY want a boy who loves the books!

  7. I think Ben is a newcomer, which seems to be a theme lately in regards to the Jace casting.

  8. Good interviews! Hmmm, he may be able to sway me. Going to search for more vids!

  9. Um, yes, I kinda like him a lot!

  10. Haha that seems to be the general consensus among fans! It’s been nothing but positive. And he helps dogs…what a sweetheart!

  11. I am definitely feeling this more than some of the others BUT I will say that the look he has going with his hair here looks very much like Alex’s IANF photoshoot so maybe even Ben is aware that is the template a lot of fans had in mind.

    • That’s why I think he has had a warm reception from fans. He definitely looks a little like Alex. And he’s British, which seems to be the mold that Screen Gems is seeking after.

  12. Lol ” and he helps dogs” just cracked me up– yes that is sweet 😉

    Personally, I think Screen Gems is messing with us. Throwing out little TMI bones (no pun intended) to see what the fandom does. It’s a conspiracy I tell ya *shaking fist* and quite unnerving!!!! jk, sorta…

    Thanks for letting me vent. Don’t know where else to do it ; )

    • You are welcome to vent, in fact it’s encouraged! LOL. I definitely think Screen Gems are taking their time for some reason. They just need to cast Jace already! Grrr.

  13. I know. They are giving me an ulcer :/

  14. Ben is hot!!!!!!!!!! no doubt about it that he is jace! alex pettyfer is infuriating actually considering another movie over City of Bones! that’s just crazy! Stone is jace!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

    • Stone is stone not jace. Ben is hot I can agree with that but I don’t think Ben would wanna be known as the person that looks like jace .

    Omg this could be jace. Omg. This is the first time that I think there will be another guy who could look and probably act like jace wayland/lightwood/morgenstern/heroandale other than Alex pettyfer

  16. Yes!! Eveytime I watch Nine Lives I keep thinking: Aleck is soooo much like Jace!! And he plays it so well… *sigh* too bad 😦

  17. I think your really hot and Every time I watch the movie I just wish you were here to protect me . Who is your girlfriend? A hot guy like you should have a lot of girls that are all over you . Who is your girlfriend? Maybe Chloe is

    Benjamin really does have the Jace look about him, I really hope he gets it. I was so disappointed when they canceled Nine Lives!
    Good luck Ben (:
