Hello everyone! I will soon be posting a review (as I haven’t been doing many of those lately) but before that I have to post this update on the ‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show! If you haven’t guessed from the title of this post, the update is on the casting for Alec and Luke from Cassandra Clare’s bestselling Mortal Instruments series!
So far, we have a casting of:
And now, we have two new members to the cast: Matthew Daddario & Isaieh Mustafa!
About Matthew: Brother of Alexandra Daddario (from Percy Jackson & the Olympians), Matthew has starred in Breathe In (2013), Delivery Man (2013) & When the Game Stands Tall (2014). Will be playing Alec Lightwood in ‘Shadowhunters’.
About Isaiah: Known for ‘Horrible Bosses’, Isaiah will be playing Luke Garroway, who is a NYPD detective investigating a string of “demonic” murders. Formerly a Shadowhunter, Luke is a werewolf.
I must admit, I can’t completely see Matthew as Alec, although I can see some resemblances between him and Emeraude Toubia (which is important since he’s playing her brother), which is good. As for Isaiah as Luke, he was not what I expected either but I’m not against him. I suppose I will warm up to them both more as time goes by, like the other cast members. I hope their acting is good!
What do you think of Matthew and Isaiah joining the ‘Shadowhunters’ cast? Let me know in the comments below!
