I have spent some time recently on a site called IFList. It allows book fans to support having their favorites brought to film. It also allows fans to suggest and vote for which actors should be cast in which roles. That exercise prompted me to spend some time contemplating just who I could see portraying some of my favorite characters.

Now that it is indeed confirmed the The Mortal Instruments book series will be released as a television series much like the Outlander book series has been, I decided to pretend like I am the casting director and offer my humble opinion as to who should / could be cast in these roles.
