First up from Just Jared comes the word that Zegers is set to play Alec Lightwood, the gay brother of Jemima West’s Isabelle. The story centers on Clary Fray (Collins), an unassuming teenage girl who discovers her true nature when a demon kidnaps her mother from their New York City home. Alec, a member of Clary’s new circle of cohorts, dislikes Clary because she comes between him and Jace (Bower), the object of his affection. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is set to debut on August 23rd, 2013.
Howard and Olivieri are in talks to join Breachers, reports Heat Vision. The duo would likely play two of the DEA agents in the Skip Woods-scripted feature that took its original title as a nod to its source story, Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians.” Schwarzenegger is already attached to star and Worthington was also recently reported as being in talks to join.
