Headey, Gao, Harris Added to the TMI Casting Bucket

The fandom who waited waits no more. A month from now, the shoot for the movie adaptation of Cassandra Clare's NY Bestselling book -- City of Bones. While there was a drought of movie news in the past months; today, Lena Headey, Jared Harris, and Godfrey Gao have been announced to join the anticipated movie.

"Jocelyn is a really fun character to write. She's overprotective (for a reason) and often really unyielding and unsympathetic, but she's also a heroine who saved the world from Valentine, endured a lot of loss, and can execute some pretty badass moves."   -Cassie

If you haven't seen 300 or Game of Thrones, let me introduce you to Lena Headey. She played Queen Gorgo 300, and is currently playing Queen Cersei in GoT. She also played Sarah Connor in the short-lived Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

I think she's be amazing as Jocelyn. I know she's in a self-induced comatose in the first 2 books but she will have (hopefully) dream sequences and flashbacks.

"Hodge is also a really complicated character. He's not entirely bad, not entirely good. He's a brilliant man led down a path a long time ago and he can't turn back, but he does love those kids he tutored."   -Cassie

I've only seem him in Sherlock Holmes as the brilliant Moriarty, but he was so good in it. Plus, he's got SAG and Emmys noms, and awards. That's saying something!

And introducing the hottest, sparkly, Asian Warlock the world has ever seen ; Magnus Bane.

Arguably the first Asian supermodel, Godrey Gao aka Yixiang Gao or Yi-Hsiang Gao who is also an actor  will play this iconic character. He's half SE Asian, half Shanghainese as per his email to Cassie. I am already digging him and I can't wait for him to be in character as Magnus. I can't wait for Alec to be cast too! (sorry for that little fangirl rant...I got carried away)

City of Bones will hit theaters August 2013.
