    NO. I love JRM, but he’s no Valentine!

    I think they just did? It seems obvious… hopefully

  3. I love JRM as Valentine, I’m sure he will play the evil character magnificently. IF you have seen him in the movie Vanity Fair, he plays quite the scheming role in that. I’m excited to see what he does with the character.

  4. i dont mind him as valentine… good pick i guess

  5. NOOOOO 😦
    not at all how I pictured valentine… sorry but cannot see him playing the bad guy in contrast to his role in Bend it like Beckham! was hoping for MICHAEL FASSBENDER ❤ I hope JRM be good

  6. I don’t mind…may be a little young?, but I don’t mind.

    • I agree completely. He seems too young, but I guess that he would be okay. In the City of Glass, it said that he looked like he was only in his 20’s.

    so excited!

  8. Im ok with him so excited for this movie

  9. Love Him.

  10. He is not to young. He is the right age. I dont know why everyone is saying that he is too young. He is 35. If you think about it. Clary is 15/16 which would mean that he was 20/21 when Clary was born. Which means that is the age he was in the books. Were people like imagining him in his 40s?

    • I agree with you Ryan. jionahthan Rhys-Meyers looks like someone in his mid-30s which is exactly what Valentine is supposed to be! It’s like people don’t know what someone in their mid-30s actually looks like.

    “Since the successful debut of the “Twilight” franchise, and especially in the aftermath of “The Hunger Games,” studios have been rushing to find the next big thing in the young adult genre” WHY ISN’T HARRY POTTER ON THAT LIST? And his picture is up on the website now.

    • i think its’s because Harry Potter is in a class of it’s own. It’s so much more than just a YA book. I’m glad it isn’t on the list because it is so much better than any of them.

      • Harry Potter is not only a franchise, a YA novel or a “big thing”…it is a classic. And that makes the difference.

      But it still is all of those things, even if it is so much more epic.

  12. Cassie just confirmed it! 😀

    Go on – it’s confirmed there!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Excellent! I didn’t even consider him before but I think he’ll pull it off magnificently – not sure how he’ll look with ash white hair but I do think he’ll be amazing! Great choice!
