The Mortal Instruments ~ Week 58

Jun 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Podcasts

Listen at Mevio or iTunes

This week we are discussing The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare! Kassie joins in for the beginning of the show, then some we discuss the series with some book club friends! Spoiler Alert! We do discuss the book’s main plot, but we have tried not to give too much away! (You have to know that means we mainly talked about the relationships!) Another fun thing we did was to discuss our “Dream Cast” for our personal version of a movie! Check out the website to see pictures! The music this week is For Fiction by NiCad.

  1. ashley says:

    I heard the greenlit the rights for a Mortal Instruments movie recently, but i haven’t read the books yet. what’s the story about? i’d love to read the books before seeing the movie, it’s usually better that way.

    • Lisa says:

      I recommend see the movies, then read the books. Because we all know the movies sucks compared to the books. That’s how i ruined Twilight.

  2. Hannahg says:

    ashley ,the story revolves around a young 15 year old girl from New York called Clarissa (Clary) who one day is dragged into the fantasy world of demons, shaddowhunters, wearwolves and vampires after meeting a handsome yet arrogant ,strange young man called Jace. There’re some great characters, and if you love Twilight/ dark materials and or harry potter im sure you love these books. Really easy to get into.
    City of Bones is the first book.

    I hope this does get the greenlit for movie.

  3. Jessica says:

    Haha, these are great! It’s funny, I definitely immediately pictured Jason Isaacs for Valentine as soon as you said “dream cast”, and I think Johnny Depp would be a fantastic Magnus Bane, he has this magnetism that’s undeniable. Another thought for Clary…what about Shailene Wood(something), from Secret Life of the American Teenager? Megan Fox doesn’t quite work for me for Isabelle–I feel like she doesn’t have human emotions!

  4. Sarah belle says:

    Cassandra Claire has said on her blog that there has been no rights given to make a movie.

  5. jess says:

    In the podcast do they discuss city of glass?? Because i’m still waiting for that to released in england, i’m trying to stay spoiler free but its hard!!! The books are so god damn good!!!!!!

  6. Kallie says:

    I like the idea of a movie myself, but I have to admit these books would make an even better television series! Don’t ya think!?!?!?

  7. Carly Lautner-Lambert-Lightwood says:

    CARLY’S CAST.

    Clary: Molly C. Quinn (WHOA. you guys are psychic!)
    Simon: Jake Thomas (PSYCHIC!!)
    Jace: Mitch Hewer –> http://celebrity-pics.movieeye.com/celebrity_pictures/Mitch_Hewer_188244.jpg
    Isabelle: Willa Holland –> http://media.photobucket.com/image/willa%20holland/carabml22/girls/willa.png?o=17
    Alec: Nicholas Hoult –> http://www.skinsmusic.co.uk/images/tony/nicholas2.jpg
    Luke: Matthew Perry –> http://redriverautographs.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/matthew_perry_4.jpg
    Jocelyn: Felicia Day –> http://www.patrickrothfuss.com/blog/uploaded_images/Felicia%27s-headshot-774016.jpg
    Valentine: don’t got one! not yet at least.
    Hodge: i like Krystal’s Hodge, so Dougray Scott.
    Magnus: Adam Lambert, till I find a better one. i don’t think he’s the best choice.
    Sebastian/Jonathan: Gaspard Ulliel (too old for Alec)
    Maia: Jurnee Smollett –> http://www.lahiguera.net/cinemania/actores/jurnee_smollett/fotos/4338/jurnee_smollett.jpg

    ENJOY!!

  8. Stephanie says:

    ohhh i really hope it becomes a movie!! these books rock!

    the people listed here would all fit the character’s looks very well!

  9. Andy says:

    NO!!!! *covers eyes* No!!! I’ve only just started City of Bones – oh Kassie and Kallie, why do you tease me so!?

    (My fault! I couldn’t find a copy of City of Bones! And City of Glass isn’t out till next month! So, can’t listen… but am 3 chapters in CoB and am loving it!)

  10. jess says:

    guess what guys!! The MORTAL INSTRUMENTS is a COMING SOON announcement on ComingSoon.net they say that there will be a Mortal Instruments movie by Warner Bros. Pictures!. I got this info at MundieSource.net and there is a little twitter convo with Cassandra Clare and how she does exactly deny it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    16 Days until City of Glass is out in England !!!!

  11. Farah says:

    hey guys, i finished City of Glass, the day this podcast came out. It was really awesome to hear a twilight podcast dedicate an entire show towards another trilogy, However, there is one minor thing, that Kallie said that got me wondering. Kallie said that in City of Bones, Clary sees Jace making out with somebody in the beginning, can someone tell me when that is? Also like a complete moron i searched the entire mortal instruments site and cassandra clare’s site yet couldn’t I find the outtakes anywhere, can someone possiby help me? Thanks

    P.S oh and by the way Alex Pettyfer as Jace all the way….

  12. indy says:

    im a few chapters in to city of ashes
    will i get spoiled if i listen to this episode?

  13. Cedar says:

    I am on the first chapters of City of Bones

  14. Chasta says:

    What happned to Dougie Poynter????

  15. Jessica W. says:

    Oops! I said Star Wars instead of Star Trek. Please forgive me Trekkies! :-)

  16. Kasha says:

    I just wanted to say that although I’m sure it seemed like a good idea to have a “panel” for the Mortal Instruments discusion, I found it VERY hard to concentrate on the actual discussion with all the different people talking over one another. I really hop that doesn’t happen for “The Host”.

  17. carina says:

    hahaha. i like how adam’s listed as magnus, and while reading, i totally always visualized him as magnus. (and listened to his music a bit… ahem)
    for maia, i think that vanessa hudgens would be very interesting. maia is supposed to be a mixed chick, and exotic looking, and totally BA. hudgens wants to go in that direction, and i actually like her for that. :)
    her or the chosen, jessica szor.

  18. Monica H. says:

    OMG who agrees with this? (Prolly no one since I’m commenting a little late but whatever) In COA when Clary gives Alec the fearless rune and events that follow… (Trying not togive too much away) Best scene in the whole series. Just hilarIious, I was rofl. I can just picture the look on everyone’s faces. “You know how we were wondering if that thing Clary did would work or not?It works.” :-D Felt so bad 4 Alec but it was funny and I figured he’s gotta say something eventually. Finished COG this morning LOVED the ending. :-)

  19. Emily says:

    I LOVE these books! I really want them to become a movie. Is anyone gonna read the next series from Cassandra, a prequel of The Mortal Instruments called The Infernal Devices?????? I cant wait for those to come out!!!!!!

  20. sandy from canada says:

    my dream cast:
    clary: alexz johnson or kelly sweet or emma roberts
    jace: alex pettyfer
    simon: jake tomas
    i dont know about the rest…

  21. Anie says:

    Why are all these people wanting Adam Lambert or someone like him as Magnus?
    He’s supposed to be asian…. don’t think Adam is

  22. Rebecca Smith says:

    GUYS!!!! Bill Kaulitz for Magnus Bane!!! Comeon!! He is perfect!!!

  23. Shayks says:

    I agree with krystals casting choices! But I would rather gave Anton Yelchin as Simon and Jason Issacs as Valentine! Alex Pettyfer as Jace all the way!! Oh and thanks for the extra pic of Alex!!!

  24. Shayla!!! says:

    omg!! The post above is mine!!! I hate how itouches just assume your trying to spell some random word that makes NO sense!!!!!

  25. clarygirl says:

    OK guys listen up whoever said Alex Pettyfer as Jace was right. I think ’cause I’m a sneak around the internet and seen a little trailer. I think Emma Roberts. this is soooo cool. if anyone finds out the date it comes out type it up quick.
    I’ve read all three books like months back. I ordered City og Glass from the USA and paid £21 freaking pounds but was like so worth it. ok I’m out.

  26. M says:

    If they make City Of Bones into a movie it has to have a way bigger budget than twilight did otherwise its just gonna be killed

  27. Sunny in texas says:

    There has to be a movie i only hope the budget is big enough to make come to life.. Megan fox would be a great izzy she`s sexy enough and shes supposed to be a little upity lol like alex just give me the movie that does the book justice for once and im sorry i cant see j.roberts as clarys mom shes to sleek not the busy haired artist slash hunter i think it would be great if clary was cast as a unknown actress instead of the faces we have already seen..in long not short make the movie and cast it well and may the budget be grand.

  28. Nicolette says:

    All I know is that the rights HAVE been bought, and that Adam Lambert would be a PERFECT Magnus Bane.

    Go Team Magnus! xD

  29. Carly Lautner-Lambert-Lightwood cast is one of the best i’ve seen,
    but idk about Mathew perry for luke.
    Magnus bane should totally be some one like miyavi, or idk anyone of that sort.
    in jessica w.’s cast i don’t think Michael Cera would be a good simon.

  30. Clare says:

    Definetly Alexz Johnson for Clary.
    Jace – alex Pettyfer
    Isabelle – Megan Fox, maybe??
    Alec – I can’t choose for Alec, but maybe soon…
    Magnus – NO WAY can I choose for him! Haha, once Photoshop starts working…maybe.
    Simon – Gaspard Ulliel. However you spell it.;D
    Valentine – I can’t choose for him.
    Jocelyn- Debra Messing possibly?
    Luke – ?

    I’ve only finished the first one, so i don’t know about everyone else, Hodge was too hard and Alaric wasn’t in there enough.(:

  31. Stef says:

    I, too, have a dream cast for The Mortal Instruments! :)

    Clary- Emma Roberts
    She looks pretty as a redhead/semi-redhead and has the innocent, youthful look.

    Jace- Alex Pettyfer
    Pretty much self-explanatory. Amazing face, bod, and hair. Perfect! ;)

    Simon- Kristopher Turner
    He looks cute and friendly. He can rock the square-framed glasses, as well!

    Isabelle- Lucy Hale
    She’s has extremely stricking eyes and dark hair. She has the “exotic” look!

    Alec- Adam Greggory
    He has dark hair, pretty eyes, and a really attractive face. Lucy and Adam can pull off the brother/sister thing.

    Magnus Bane- Mario Maurer
    He IS half asian and looks good with V-necked shirts. I totally pictured Magnus wearing V-necks and velvet.

    Jocelyn- Molly Ringwald
    She has the similar innocent face that Emma has and the big, round innocent eyes. Which is good because they’re supposes to be mother and daughter.

    Valentine- Gerard Butler
    He looked awesome in Dracula and The Phantom of the Opera. He has that fierce facial thing going on!
    ***I couldn’t find/think of anyone that looks like the mental imagery I have of Luke and Hodge. I imagine Luke to be slender, blonde, and sort of awkward. I imagine Hodge to be short and sort of act like the red panda from KungFu Panda. Lol. :)

  32. Stef says:

    P.S- Alex Pettyfer is so cuuuuuuuute! ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

  33. HERE’S MY OPINION OF THE CAST:
    CLARY FRAY: DAKOTA BLUE RICHARDS
    JACE WAYLAND: ALEX PETTYFER
    SIMON LEWIS: KRISTOPHER TURNER OR MICHAEL BAILEY
    MARYSE LIGHTWOOD: LENA HEADEY
    VALENTINE: JASON ISAACS
    YOUNG VALNETINE: BRADLEY JAMES
    LUKE GARROWAY: MICHAEL WEATHERLY
    YOUNG LUKE: CHRIS PINE
    JOCELYN FAIRCHILD: ANGIE EVERHART
    YOUNG JOCELYN: ZENA GREY
    ALEC LIGHTWOOD: GASPARD ULLIEL
    MAGNUS BANE: MIYAVI
    MAIA: LARISSA WILSON
    ALINE PENHALLOW: KATIE LEUNG
    RAPHAEL: TYLER POSEY
    ISABELLE LIGHTWOOD: IDK, BUT MAYBE MEGAN FOX, ODETTE YUSTMAN, OR JESSICA LOWDES
    HODGE: IDK
    IMOGEN HERONDALE: HELEN MIRREN
    ROBERT LIGHTWOOD- IDK
    MAX LIGHTWOOD: IDK
    PANGBORN: IDK
    THAT’S ALL I HAVE FOR NOW, WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?
