No 'Mortal Instruments' for Alex Pettyfer?

No 'Mortal Instruments' for Alex Pettyfer?

Alex Pettyfer gets ready to bare his chest to Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which aired TODAY (January 28).

The 20-year-old I Am Number Four actor shared that this was his first talk show appearance in the United States! Here’s to many more!

In other news, according to Vulture (via MTV), it looks like Alex is passing on playing Jace Wayland in the Mortal Instruments series.

“Talks between Screen Gems and reps for Alex Pettyfer have reached an impasse,” the paper reports and added on later, “even though he’s a top choice of vocal Cassandra Clare fans to play the role of Jace, insiders now say a deal won’t be made: We’re told that as much as Pettyfer likes the ‘Instruments’ series, he likes ‘The Last Apprentice’ books even more.”

    Wow, even though OceanUp is basically gossip stolen from ONTD and made up, they at at least credit their readers for tips or input. I wrote this information in my comment in the last post about Alex Pettyfer when you asked if your readers would want to see him as Jace.

  • Mika

    That was the most amazing video ever.

    1. His lip biting.
    2. His happiness in his “personal life”.
    3. His body.
    4. His nervousness.
    5. He kiss Ellen.

    This guy needs to be Jace.
