Transamerica and It’s A Boy Girl Thing star Kevin Zegers has joined the cast of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones for director Harald Zwart, based on Cassandra Clare’s bestselling young adult novel. And even better, the hot young star is set to play gay in the film. The news hasn’t been officially announced yet, but Just Jared says Zegers has the role.
The movie is about Clary Fray (Lily Collins), a young woman living in New York City who discovers she comes from a long line of demon hunters. Zegers is set to play Alec Lightwood, the gay brother of Jemima West’s Isabelle. He despises Clary since he is in love with Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower), but Jace has feelings for Clary. Kevin Durand, Robert Maillet, Lena Headey, Jared Harris and Robert Sheehan also star.
Filming is set to begin August 20th in Toronto.
