Just Jared is reporting that Kevin Zeger has been cast as Alec Lightwood in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
There is no official confirmation at this point so it is a RUMOR until otherwise stated.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is based on the first book in the best-selling series by Cassandra Clare. The story follows Clary Fray (Lily Collins), a seemingly ordinary teenage girl, who finds out the truths about her past and bloodline after her mom is attacked and taken from their home in New York City by a demon. Her entire life is changed on her quest to get her mom back.
Kevin, 27, will play Alec Lightwood, the gay brother of Isabelle (Jemima West). He is in love with Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) and dislikes Clary because Jace is in love with her and not him. The film is scheduled to be released on August 23, 2013.
UPDATE: Cassandra Clare took to her Tumblr to address the casting rumor.
And yes, I know there are casting rumors swirling and you want to know whether they’re true or not. Unfortunately I can’t confirm or deny (and I was hoping to get out of this without sounding like Nixon) at the moment. Hopefully this Dark Suspense will not last too long….
Stay tuned as more updates unfold.
