City of Bones Casts Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as Valentine

According to Cassandra Clare, it's affirmed Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is playing the villain, Valentine:

So this is not me posting news so much as confirming the rumors: YES, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is going to play Valentine.

I’ve liked JRM since he was in Velvet Goldmine and I have to admit that image was what sprang immediately to mind when the producer called me and said “…Jonathan Rhys Meyers?”

I was like, “Velvet Goldmine!”

And Robert, who is German and very practical, was like, “I hope you have seen things he is in since then or I will assume you do not go to the theater.”

So yes I should probably also mention that JRM plays Henry the 8th on The Tudors, and does a very good job of being charismatic, power-hungry, and cold.

Oh noes, I just have to see everyone's reaction to this...

He is so beautiful, IDC what anyone says. He was at his finest in Bend It Like Beckham.

I just wish he could always look like the way he did in Gormenghast.
makahakat 11th-Aug-2012 04:33 am (UTC)
ilh, i will probably pay to see this now (maybe)!
_xxtom 11th-Aug-2012 04:34 am (UTC)
He's the one who's a racist, right?
winniechili 11th-Aug-2012 04:36 am (UTC)
He is (was?) an alcoholic and an addict and an abuser, but I never heard racist.
dannyupshaw 11th-Aug-2012 04:36 am (UTC)
don't know about that, but he drinks a lot.

_xxtom 11th-Aug-2012 04:42 am (UTC)
lol k i thought so. I typed in 'Jonathan Rhys Meyers racist' on google and it all came back to me. He's gross and vile ...
I love how the people who responded to me continue to bring up his alcoholism but don't directly answer my question .. lol.

this creepy looking motherfucker

There is something so strange about JRM being in a CC movie. idk if it's because people always used JRM for characters in HP roleplaying games back in the day or what.

I think it's mostly the 'we all fangirled Velvet Goldmine' thing.

I seriously wonder if this is going to be one of those YA films that has an amazing cast, but flops at the box office or if it'll actually be a success. I think it has potential to do well, but I really hope not.
squirrels_oh_no 11th-Aug-2012 04:39 am (UTC)
I think flop.

BIG flop.
abbiemills 11th-Aug-2012 04:41 am (UTC)
I'd like to think flop because I can't see how the concept will translate on screen and Lily's a terrible lead. They've gotten some amazing people in the cast and maybe it'll pick up like THG did in terms of popularity, but I can't imagine the audience this would appeal to, outside of people who like/understand the books.
helholden 11th-Aug-2012 04:42 am (UTC)
I know, right? There are some really amazing cast members that I'm torn.
tigirah 11th-Aug-2012 05:00 am (UTC)
Idk, because I could care less about the plot or the books, but I WILL be seeing it for the cast (due to my renewed love for Robert Sheehan tbh). I have a feeling this will be the case for a lot of people.

But I don't see it being as big as twilight or the hunger games...

I'm going with flop :|
kurtvonnegut 11th-Aug-2012 05:11 am (UTC)
it'll be 2013's beastly
fairchilds 11th-Aug-2012 05:20 am (UTC)
it is. with the exception of the two leads the casting has been really great. but anw this book sucks.
purriing 11th-Aug-2012 05:36 am (UTC)
Sadly, I think it's gonna do well, ONTD just doesn't want to accept it.

blessedbell 11th-Aug-2012 07:06 am (UTC)
perhaps the director will be able to transform it from a trainwreak to something viable? maybe
derrobitch 11th-Aug-2012 08:43 am (UTC)
part of me says flop, but then again i thought THG was going to flop at this stage so what do i know lol
