Sure, it may not be Simon Lewis-level casting news, but no scoop from "The Mortal Instruments" set is too small as pre-production ramps up on the Cassandra Clare adaptation.

Variety reports that Kevin Durand and Robert Maillet are joining the supernatural flick as Pangborn and Blackwell, a pair of disgraced Shadowhunters who serve as villainous Valentine's underlings.

Kevin, who was most recently rumored to be in the running for the role of Brutus in "Catching Fire," is best known for portraying Martin on "Lost" and can be seen in the upcoming Robert Pattinson-starring film "Cosmopolis." His cohort Robert is a Canadian pro wrestler who's racked up film credits in "Sherlock Holmes" and "Immortals."

The two join previously cast stars Jemima West as Isabelle Lightwood, Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace Wayland and Lily Collins as Clary Fray.

"The Mortal Instruments" tells the story of Clary Fray, who thinks she is just a regular teen until she discovers she comes from a long line of ancient demon destroyers known as Shadowhunters. Production on the first installment, "City of Bones," is slated to begin next month. (Meaning we hope to be writing many more of these casting announcements over the next few weeks...)
