If you remember, Benjamin Stone tried for the role of Jace Wayland in the 2013 movie version. Sadly he didn’t get the it. It went to Jamie Campbell Bower.
This year he might be able to get it because he already worked on ABC Family in two of their previous shows: “The Nine Lives of Chloe King” (2011) and “10 Things I Hate About You” (2010).
Benjamin Stone would be perfect as his character, Alek, in Chloe King was so similar to Jace’s in TMI. No need to train him for anything.
Jace has a sharp, defensive wit, an acidic temperament, and a very sarcastic attitude when he chooses. Giving the impression of holding most people in disdain, Jace is seen as extremely arrogant, self-centered, and overconfident, believing himself to be “the best Shadowhunter to ever live” and above others. True enough, Jace is superior in battle, something Jace has been training for since he was young and had grown to love over the years. He even exhibits sadistic tendencies, which he got on account of being raised by Valentine.
Despite this, Jace in fact has a strong moral core. He is dutiful and just, willing to make the right decisions, and sacrifices if it comes down to it. Though he can be, at times, vindictive, he is cruel only to protect those he loves. Source
Jace is described as incredibly handsome by everyone including himself. He is all gold: his hair is dark gold and curly, and his long eyelashes are a shade lighter than his hair. He has smoldering golden eyes, at one point described as luminous (by himself). He is said to be around 5′ 11″, in height, almost a foot taller than Clary. He is well-built, long and lean, and has a slight chip in one of his front teeth that, as Clary states, keeps him from looking too inhumanly perfect. Source
See? Let’s put this on images!!
His hair is blonde, so no need to waste money dyeing it. He is strong, sexy, “described as incredibly handsome”, “is well-built, long and lean”… Ben has ALL those things. See it on the pics below:
