So remember when I said we wouldn’t have a Simon till July for Reasons?
The Reasons were that the actors up for Simon had to test with Jamie and Lily in Toronto to see how the chemistry worked. When I talked to Jamie and Lily yesterday it was about who we thought was the absolute best, the most Simon-y Simon, and fortunately we all agreed.
Y’all know I am a big Misfits fan, so you should not be surprised to know that I’m ecstatic that our Simon is:
Robert Sheehan. You may know him as Nathan. :)
He’s totally cute and adorable and HILARIOUS, and his chemistry with Lily and Jamie is off the charts. I’ve wanted him for Simon for ages so I am pretty much totally and entirely happy.
Also you should all watch Misfits.
How cute is he?!!!!
Is this a step up for him? I liked Misfits which is the only reason this caught my attention. Is the Mortal Instruments still relevant? I feel like they've been trying to make that movie happen forever.
ETA: For anyone who's confused (there seem to be a couple), this casting is regarding the upcoming film series "The Mortal Instruments" based on the YA novel series of the same name by author Cassandra Clare.
