Book News | ‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show Casting Update: Alec & Luke!

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:

You can check out my posts on them HERE, HERE, and HERE.

And now, we have two new members to the cast: Matthew Daddario & Isaieh Mustafa!

Matthew Daddario & Isiah 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.

My Thoughts

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!

  1. Uh oh, I’m not happy about either of them! I think Luke will grow on me. But Alec doesn’t have any of the innocence that he has in the book, and that was what made me love him
    Thanks for visiting Addlepates and Book Nerds! 🙂

  2. I’m so bad at keeping up with the Shadowhunter updates. I feel like I get all my cast info from you, which isn’t a bad thing at all. XD Alec is cute, but I expected his overall look to be more brooding… And I also always imagined Luke as how I imagined an older Simon, sort of awkward and less charismatic than Isaiah. So I’m a little disappointing this time around… I can’t wait to see who plays Magnus now though!

    • Ha ha it can get hard to keep up, I’m glad my updates are useful! 😀 Yeah, it’s not that the guy is bad-looking or anything, it’s just not how I pictured Alec. Maybe that’ll change in the show? 🙂 Yeah, same here. This casting isn’t my favorite, but I’m determined not to let it bother the overall TV show! ❤
