The Internet Reacts to the (Possible) Casting of Dylan O’Brien in TMI
With filming of The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes slated for sometime this year, you can expect to hear plenty of TMI sequel buzz in the weeks/months to come. In fact, rumors are swirling that Dylan O’Brien, Ezra Miller, Chace Crawford or Logan Lerman may even join the cast.
But don’t get excited just yet, Shadowhunters; you know how rumors go. Nothing is definite until the studio says so, and, so far, only one website has really brought up the above-mentioned possibilities. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it, right?
Here’s the scoop: Although Jamie Campbell Bower‘s character will be known as Jonathan Morgenstern for a little while after the big reveal at the end of the first movie, fans of the franchise know — spoilers ahead, FYI — that he’s not actually Valentine’s biological son. Rather, the real Jonathan Morgenstern will be posing as Sebastian Verlac, a cousin of Nephilim family, the Penhallows. (Following along so far?) And that’s the character casting in question today.
As of right now, it’s hard to picture Dylan or Ezra as the white-haired/black-eyed villain — at least in our opinion (though we do heart them). But nevermind what we think. Here’s what fans of the series are saying on Twitter:
@TMI_Institute I don't see either of them working, but then again I didn't see Jaime working as Jace, and did a great job.

Considering the character doesn’t appear until the third book in the sequence, City of Glass, we’re not holding our breath on this one. But do you think any of the aforementioned talents have what it takes to be Sebastian/Jonathan? Or do you have someone else in mind? Tell us your top picks in the comments!
