The Mortal Instruments Casting News: Simon has been chosen!

The tall dude is the one who is going to play Simon.
So Claire's best friend, and occasional stalker, has been chosen! Simon is going to be played by Robert Sheehan, the tall guy with the curly hair in the picture above.

...And he looks nothing like I pictured Simon to be!

Robert Sheehan Robert Sheehan attends The Inaugral White Rose Charity Ball in aid of The UK Holocaust Centre at Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel on September 25, 2011 in London, England.

I know Robert, it's sad. I just pictured Simon differently, but alas Mrs. Cassandra Clare says that you have good chemistry with the other actors so who am I to judge? Plus, you look like you could potentially grow on me. Specially if you play your cards right in the movie.

Cassandra Clare's comment:
"He’s totally cute and adorable and HILARIOUS, and his chemistry with Lily and Jamie is off the charts," she wrote. "I’ve wanted him for Simon for ages so I am pretty much totally and entirely happy."
Hmmm I don't know if I should be listening to the person who, for the most part, ruined one of my favorite series, but he does look kind of cute. I'll give him a shot.

Who did you picture as Simon?


  1. Well I am unbelievable excited to hear this! That gets the movie one step nearer to actually beeing made.
    I have to agree with you, he does not look like I pictured Simone.
    I imagined him to be smaller and with darker hair... But hey, as long as he's a good actor (which I cannot judge since I haven't seen him in anything yet) I'm happy :)

  2. I think he's a good match for the role!


  3. All I'm going to say is you need to watch Misfits, which is an awesome, hilarious show. (In no small part to Robert.)It's like 6-8 epiosdes a season, British and about community service teens that get super powers in a freak lightning storm. Also, your top picture might be confusing since Iwan Rheon, the boy next to Robert in the top picture, plays Simon on Misfits.

  4. Oh My God, I LOVE THIS GUY. Misfits anyone?!

  5. He's so much better than the guy they cast as Jace. There's hope!!

  6. I know one thing he is NOT what I pictured Simon looking like. and personally he's not even cute. I think they could have done better.

  7. It'll be interesting to hear him with an american accent!

    I imagined Jace as Alex Pettyfer but younger!


Read your opinion, I want. Leave a comment, you shall.
