Jared Harris cast as Hodge Starkweather in ‘City of Bones’
And the casting news just keeps on coming (not that we’re complaining!)
Cassandra Clare announced that Jared Harris (Mad Men, Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows) has been cast as Hodge Starkweather in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
Here’s what Cassie had to say:
Hodge is also a really complicated character. He’s not entirely bad, not entirely good. He’s a brilliant man led down a bad path a long time ago and he can’t turn back, but he does love those kids he tutored. So if you’ve seen either Mad Men or Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows (in which he was Moriarty), you know this guy, and you know he’s fantastic at moral ambiguity.
He’s got SAG awards all over the place and I think he’ll really nail Hodge’s moral dilemma. Welcome, Jared!
I told you it wasn’t going to be a boring day!
Certainly not a boring day!
Harris joins the cast of Lily Collins (Clary), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace), Robert Sheehan (Simon), Jemima West (Isabelle), Kevin Durand (Pangborn), Robert Maillet (Blackwell) and the newly announced Godfrey Gao (Magnus) and Lena Headey (Jocelyn).
Filming on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones begins filming on August 15 in Toronto and the film is slated for an August 23, 2013 theatrical release.

I know. We get all this casting information but they leave out Alec. It makes me very mad.
I adore this!
We’ve got Clary, Jace, Izzy, Pangborn, Blackwell, Simon, Jocelyn, Hodge, and MAGNUS. Now give us Alec!!! (please)
I KNOW!!! That moment when all of the characters are filled BUT Alec! >:0 grrrr.
We’re still waiting on Clary’s step dad, his name escapes me…..Luke! So Alec & Luke! Then that’s it! Hopefully Church is cast too.

This is one of the most exciting casting decisions. Jared Harris is an extremely talented actor. They are casting the adult roles exceptionally well. Now looking forward to who is playing Valentine and Luke.
