The cast for The Mortal Instruments; City of Bones is nearly complete.
Stephen R. Hart has been cast as Brother Jeremiah, Cassandra Clare announced on Tumblr.
“The Silent Brothers are archivists, but that is not all they are,” interrupted Hodge, sounding as if he were running out of patience. “In order to strengthen their minds, they have chosen to take upon themselves some of the most powerful runes ever created. The power of these runes is so great that the use of them—” He broke off and Clary heard Alec’s voice in her head, saying: They mutilate themselves. “Well, it warps and twists their physical forms. They are not warriors in the sense that other Shadowhunters are warriors. Their powers are of the mind, not the body.”
Here’s what Clare had to say about Hart:
Dude seems appropriately creepy to me. Also he will be buried under pounds of makeup and robes. Interested to see how the Silent Brothers turn out visually.
Filming on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones begins between August 15-20 and is slated for an August 23, 2013 theatrical release in the U.S.
