Are you a Jace Lover, Hater or Skeptic?

So we finally have our Jace in the flesh and there's been quite the firestorm!  Everyone's got an opinion!

Get Over It!
Most of you know I was an Alex Pettyfer mega fan for this role. But that didn't happen. So what should I do? Big sigh and then...
GET OVER IT!
Okay done.  

I happen to have seen Jamie Campbell Bower a lot lately because of the new STARZ series CAMELOT, where he plays King Arthur. 
Cute

Better
Looking good with his hottie brother, Kay
I love the show but I've got to say, he's my least favorite.  His acting is great - the whole cast is amazing -  but as yet he hasn't pulled off the strong king presence. Actually, he comes across wimpy. But in his defense his character is supposed to be young and somewhat naive and growing into his new role as king. But compared to the other hotties on the show, he's physically small and thin and the least, well...hot. See for yourself. 

OTHER HOTTIES
Gawain the GA-WA-Gorgeous!
Leontes looks like this plus he's an amazing knight, devoted husband, kind, loyal, brave, and true!
Leontes Looking Very King-ish. Guinevere cheated on him with Arthur ...what?
Kay, Arthur's Handsome Brother
The Sexiest Merlin Ever!
But perhaps he'll have a transformation and come into his strong kingly role as part of his character development. And for Jace he needs to beef up a la Taylor Lautner. 

So Where Am I?
A firm skeptic. I'm good with his acting skills. He's cute. Let's see how the chemistry is on-screen with him and Clary. And, Jamie, please...
Get Thee to the Gym!

So are you a Hater, Lover or Skeptic?

I'm a hater. He's not at all how I viewed Jace >_< And yes Jamie, to the gym with you!

Dazzling Mage said...

I was shocked too, but I'm glad they took me by surprise by casting him. In certain pictures, he looks like a Jace. Plus, Alex has this "old" feel/look to him.

And waaah, Kay, Gawain, Leontes and Merlin! LOL, omg, you should read my tweets going on and on about how stupid Guinevere cheated! I mean...woman, are you BLIND?!

Blodeuedd said...

I do not find him attractive at all so nope

Jadey! said...

I'm actually a lover <3 I love Jamie and I'm glad they didn't cast Alex, he's too predictable and too old looking for Jace...

Well, to be fair... the main characters of Camelot have never appealed to me. Author was usually boring and Gwen was always annoying (to me). I always enjoyed the secondary characters more. They seemed to have more personality. I still need to read this series. It's on my tbr! :)

ParaJunkee said...

Ha ha ha. Yes, no one wants a wimpy little girly man for a Jace. And he needs to get a hair cut.

pepsivanilla said...

Alright, yeah I'm a skeptic. Saw him in Sweeney Todd where he played a sissy boy so that's kinda my first reaction. BUT I've watched some interviews with him about Camelot and he's really sweet and funny, so I'm rooting for him to do an awesome job and bring us the sexy!

YA Book Queen said...

I think he could possibly pull off being Jace, but it's going to be a lot of work. And pressure to live up to the character...

There's actually one TV show with that many hot guys? Maybe I need to start watching Camelot ;)

Missie said...

Okay, where have I been because clearly I'm missing out on the OTHER HOTTIES you have pictured there. Now I must watch this Camelot show.

I don't know this Bower guy, but I'm most definitley disappointed. I really wanted Alex as Jace. Or at the very least the CGI guy that is on the cover of City of Bones. LOL

When Jamie was first announced as Jace I was disappointed but I'm over it now. I'm not one of those people who will go on message boards and bash the guy. Maybe he will look better once he's in costume like Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss so who knows.

tinkandalissa said...

I'm definitely a hater. I'm evil to say this, but he is difficult to look at. He's extremely disappointing and totally too wimpy for Jace. I was SO excited to see these books made into movies until I heard he's playing Jace. I don't have a problem with his acting, but just like you said, he's definitely my least fave of all the ppl on Camelot, and to be honest I've missed the last few eps because I just don't care for him in the role. I'll let out a big sigh, but I am just not ready to get over it.

Carina L. Tai said...

Ahaha I definitely agree with you on everything :) I was a HUGE HUGE Alex Pettyfer for Jace fan, but that's not gonna happen. I was somewhat disappointed at first, and now I'm slowly starting to accept Jamie as Jace.

And yes! haha, jamie! GET THYSELF TO THE GYM!

Lieder Madchen said...

I really like Jamie as Jace. I mean, Jace was never supposed to be a hunky sort of guy. He is described as being blonde and having the face of an angel. To me, Jamie seems to have that delicate, yet somehow a little harsh look that I always imagined Jace having. I haven't really seen him act, though, so I shall have to wait and see. I would describe myself as optimistic and hopeful. :)

Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books) said...

Get thee to the gym is right!

I think Jamie will be able to pull off Jace good and well, but the boy needs to pack on some muscle. Aside from that, I think he'll do just fine (and I haven't seen him in too much).

*Side note: I haven't seen Merlin, but I may start just for Kay. Whoever plays him is gorgeous.

Small Review said...

meh, I'm a skeptic. Or maybe hopeful is a better word. My first thought was he looks girly. He's kind of scrawny and he looks delicate and feminine. I can't really picture him pulling off Jace's attitude...and if he pulls off his shirt, well, I can't say I'm all that excited about the idea. I'm open to seeing what he does with the role before passing judgement though.

But those other guys? Wow. Yes please!

nymfaux said...

Um, ok, obviously I need to be watching Camelot!!!!--Thanks for the pics!!! WOW! ;)

I've seen the pics that Jaime was going to be Jace, but otherwise I really don't know much about him...and (don't hate me)...I haven't read the books yet...(I've been on a wait list FOREVER)(ug)...

So...I'm not positive if the cover picture is supposed to be Jace--But I could totally see Jaime being a stand in for the cover model!--I'm optimistic--I think their was a lot of attention for this role, and I think Jaime probably had bring something pretty special to the picture to get it--Definitely looking forward to seeing!!!

I'm a bit of a skeptic, right now when I look at pictures of him, I just can't see him as Jace. However, that doesn't mean, that once we see a trailer for this movie that won't change. I was the same way about R.Pattinson who had been chosen to play Edward in Twilight and then was pleasantly surprised. Yes, I think the man's a great actor, people need to get over well, never mind end of rant. lol. But, yes I'm a skeptic, I was a skeptic of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor and am very much happy and crushing on him. So, yep...I'll wait and see to render my final judgment.

I'm a sceptic. I heard he's a really good actor, but he just doesn't match my image of Jace. (And wow, Kay from Camelot. Might have to start watching it...) Buut I'm hoping he'll make the character work. Though to be honest, the fact he's playing Gellert Grindelwald in Deathly Hallows part 2 blows my mind a little.. Jace and Grindelwald...o_O.

I'm a skeptic/hater. I've been cheering for Alex for this role since before we were sure there would even BE a movie. But i won't write him off just yet; i'll give him a chance to prove himself just like i gave robert pattinson a chance (which he then blew, but oh well).

Julia :) said...

Ehhhh I'm a skeptic. I'm not a huge fan of Jace as it is (don't kill me!!!) but I think Jamie Campbell Bower is just.... I don't know he looks so feminine. :P But hey if Cassandra Clare loves him then who am I to complain. I guess my biggest gripe is that he's been in so many other franchises. Will people really be able to get over his roles in Harry Potter and Twilight to see him AS Jace?

My favorite was Kay.
