PicMonkey Collage (59)

Our friends from Yahoo! Movies has named The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones to their list of the ’25 Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2013.’

25) The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (August 23)

“There have been plenty of fantasy movies trying to fill the gap left by “Harry Potter” and “Twilight,” but this adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s bestselling series might have the best shot at taking over. Lily Collins plays a young woman who discovers she has the ability to see the demons that walk among us, and she joins a band of Shadowhunters to defend the human world. It’s got action, romance, werewolves, and everything else fantasy fans are looking for.”

Kevin Zegers Talks ‘Mortal Instruments’ and how LGBT Roles on Screen Have Changed with

PicMonkey Collage (57) had the chance to catch up with actor extraordinare Kevin Zegers. He spoke about how LGBT roles on the big screen have evolved over the years. Mr.Zegers also discussed portraying one of those characters, Alec Lightwood, in the upcoming film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (August.23)


Mr. Zegers on how LGBT roles has changed over time:

“It’s not as taboo as it used to be,” the Canadian star from Woodstock, Ontario, says. “It’s much more of a generational thing that that is even something that people consider….It used to be like the gay character and they didn’t even have to define him any further. They were just like, ‘Oh, he’s the gay guy’. I think everyone now has much more experience with gay family members and whatever the case may be. Certainly for my generation, it’s just not something that’s that big a deal anymore.”

On how views have changed in society:

Mortal Instruments is a pretty big movie and the fact that the studio feels comfortable with one of their lead characters being gay is pretty indicative of peoples’ opinion towards that sort of thing, which is that you don’t really have to make a big deal out of it. It’s just sort of is what it is. It’s just one of the layers of the characters that I get to play.”


On how Alec’s sexuality added to the complexity of the role:

“For me, it makes the character more dynamic. There’s a lot more to work with and his behaviour and what he does in the film is not defined at all by his sexual preference. In fact, he’s probably one of the more bad-ass characters in the movies so it’s certainly not something that we played or…it’s not something that we needed to focus on. It’s just one of the many traits he has.”

On how the important things are the stories and characters:

“To me, it’s boring to play a one-note character. I think maybe ’cause I was so young when I started working and was on set for the first time, I think the novelty of being on set has worn off in a way that I wanna do something that’s hard. I wanna do something that’s challenging and difficult and uncomfortable. And to me, that’s what I look for more than anything. So when I read the Mortal Instruments, it was the character that I immediately resonated with because there were so many layers to this guy….I just try to find the character or the film or the director who I think will challenge me the most.”

Kevin Zegers Talks ‘The Mortal Instruments’ Passionate Fan Base and The Colony with

PicMonkey Collage (56)

Our very own Kevin Zegers (Alec Lightwood) spoke to Tribute about The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, while on a press tour for his latest film The Colony, which came out on Canadian theathers last April 26 and will hit U.S theaters on the same day as The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.



Mr. Kevin Zegers talked about the passionate fan base surrounding the series:

“We were just at WonderCon, which is the pre-Comic Con thing, which we’re doing in July, and it’s bananas. There’s more people that have read this book than I’ve ever met in my whole life. But if you think about that it’s so hindering to doing–the reality is we just made a movie. It’s a big movie, they spent a lot of money on it, there’s a built-in fan base.”

Mr.Zegers mentioned that he’s not used to working on something so big, but that his lack-of experience, helped him focus on portraying Alec Lightwood:

“But if I start thinking what everyone’s opinion of what my character should be, you’d end up with some weird version of a hundred different things. The reason I like movie was because I loved this character and because that character came to me–because I auditioned for it and it happened very quickly–that was my only focus. I haven’t even really digested the things that are sort of happening right now, which is like, God, this a big ol’ thing. They’re talking about the press tour and it’s like I’m not used to that so for me it was just a movie. And it happened to be a big movie, but I wasn’t so focused on what the fans were expecting.”

Mr.Hot Stripper Outfit (Kevin Zegers) is excited about the hype surrounding the movie and the possibility of filming all six books of the series.

“It’s a weird world of people pre-analyzing something that they haven’t seen yet, but it’s great. It sounds like people are excited. We’re all excited for people to see it and we want to make six of them. The hope is that people go out to see it and I think people will. It’s a good movie.”

MTV INTERVIEW: Kevin Zegers Talks About The Brutal Stunts For ‘City of Bones’

PicMonkey Collage (50)


MTV’s Hollywood Crush had the chance to catch up with actor extraordinare Kevin Zegers (aka Hot Stripper),last March 29 during WonderCon, where they talked about his experience on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.


Any Shadowhunter worth his black would never be caught dead using a stunt double while destroying dastardly demons, and so it was that the actors portraying badass Nephilim in the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments underwent weeks of grueling training to pull off all those jumps, kicks and flips.

When we caught up with star Kevin Zegers recently at WonderCon, he explained the process of getting into top physical condition to portray Alec Lightwood.

“I think I showed up about four weeks before we started, and it went through filming, so then on lunch break we would go and rehearse the fight sequences,” he said of the rigorous preparation. “[Director] Harald [Zwart] wanted us to do our own stuff, which I think when you watch the movie you can tell. It’s sort of great, and you can see that it’s us, and it’s violence and just as, like, a guy, I saw the new trailer and it looks awesome. It looks like a big action movie, also obviously, the love story and everything are going on and the fantasy stuff. The action stuff looks awesome.”

PicMonkey Collage (43)


Would you love to have a chance to win a signed copy of City of Bones by the cast of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones?

Recently Miss Cassandra Clare donated the book to the Trevor Project, wich will be giving it away randomly to someone who donates.

‘So — and this was a bit of a long game — I brought a copy of City of Bones to the movie set with me, and had all the actors sign it for the charity. It is, as far as I know, the only copy of City of Bones out there right now that everyone in the cast has signed.’

All you need to do is donate $10 to the Trevor Project, “the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.”

The fundraiser, which is now open,will last through May 31.


We’re going extend the fundraiser through May! Because a snippet from a story that’s already out isn’t the most exciting reward, contributors will instead receive a snippet from “The Midnight Heir,”The Bane Chronicles story that features James Herondale.

We apologize for the change of plans. Thank you for your patience, and all your wonderful support!


Right now fans have donated $3,932 so go to the Trevor Project Site if you want to support such a good and beautiful cause and donate $10 or more (more please), and enter to win a currently one-of-a-kind autographed book. And even better, donate to a noble cause.
