Though it took more than five months, we finally found our Jace Wayland in Jamie Campbell Bower back on June 1 (and I think we can say–for the most part–that we are satisfied with the decision).
It was known that around 200 actors auditioned for the role, among those Ed Speleers, Alex Pettyfer and Leebo Freeman, and now we can add another name to the list: Alexander Ludwig.
Ludwig, who will appear in The Hunger Games as Cato, revealed on Twitter that he had discussions with Screen Gems about the role.
“I was in discussions with the studio (Screen Gems) about the movie,” Ludwig tweeted.
It seems as if Ludwig is also a fan of Collins.
“I’m a huge fan of Lily Collins,” he tweeted. “She’s going to rock it.”
Thanks to Everything Lily Collins for the tip.
