Get ready to welcome two new members to the Mortal Instruments family.
Cassandra Clare announced two exciting new castings for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
Aidan Turner has been cast as Luke Garroway.
He was terrific in Being Human and there’s massive buzz about his upcoming role in the Hobbit. He’s Irish so perhaps he and Robert Sheehan can sit around and talk about Irish things.
Also, CCH Pounder has been cast as Madame Dorothea.
You may know her from The Shield. Or The X-Files. Or Warehouse 13. Or ER. Or The West Wing. Or pretty much every cool show in the known universe. Our director’s wanted to work with her for ages and I think she will be amazing. Welcome, CCH!
Turner and Pounder join Lily Collins (Clary), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace), Robert Sheehan (Simon), Jemina West (Isabelle), Godfrey Gao (Magnus), Lena Headey (Jocelyn), Jared Harris (Hodge), Kevin Durand (Pangborn) and Robert Maillet (Blackwell) in the cast.
Filming on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones begins August 20 and the film is slated for an August 23, 2013 theatrical release in the U.S.
