Casting underway for ‘Clockwork Prince’ audiobook

Casting for the 'Clockwork Prince' audiobook is underway.

We are just about four months away until the release of Clockwork Prince, the second installment in the Infernal Devices trilogy.

What better way to ramp up the excitement than with the announcement that casting is currently underway for the Clockwork Prince audiobook.

Here’s what Cassandra Clare had to say about the process:

It’s pretty much just picking off a list of guys with sexy British voices. My job sucks!

That must be an incredibly dull and boring job, eh? (just kidding, of course.)

Clare has placed a special request for Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick, who voiced the male characters in the City of Fallen Angels audiobook.

Clockwork Prince will be released on Dec. 6, 2011.

Who would you like to see voice Tessa, Will, Jem and the rest of the gang?

8 Comments on Casting underway for ‘Clockwork Prince’ audiobook

  1. Personally I would absolutely hate it if Ed Westwick came back to narrate CP because him and Molly Quinn completely ruined CoFA audiobook for me. I cannot believe that it might be happening again and I’m quite annoyed with Cassie for requesting him!
    If he ends up doing it, I definitely won’t be buying the audiobook, which will piss me off because I really like audiobooks.

  2. I listened to about a minute of the CoFA audiobook and I wasn’t impressed at all. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good accent, but I could barely hear what Westwick was saying, let alone understand him cuz all he did was mumble. I didn’t make it far enough to hear Molly Quin. I’m not going to buy the audio book, but I sure hope Westwick doesn’t do it again. And why would someone british read it anyway? No one in the book is british.

      I haven’t heard the CoFA audiobook so I can’t comment on what you’ve said about Ed Westwick, but what do you mean no one in CP is British? Sure, Tessa is American, but most of the main characters with the exception of Magnus are British, right? (The main characters being Jem – part Chinese but living the last few years in Britain – and Will, who’s Welsh.

      • Sorry, my bad. I think I was confusing CP with CoLS or something. You’re right, they’re (mostly) all British! Lol.

    • Hey, it won’t let me reply to your most recent comment, so I’ll just reply here. Haha I thought maybe that was it, easy mistake to make! Gosh I wish CoLS was at the audiobook casting stage, I’m DYING to know what happens next!

  3. Please, Please, Please, bring back Jennifer Ehle.

    • I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one. I just started listening to CP and had to turn the bass way down to even understand Ed Westwick. And neither reader has any talent for distinguishing between the different character’s voices like Jennifer Ehle did. I am very disappointed and finding it hard to even get through the book.

  4. Men suck at female voices, but jennifer did a good job with the guys voices.
