Bookmark and Share

The search for Clary Fray's bass-playing BFF is over! Irish actor Robert Sheehan will join Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower in the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's best-selling "Mortal Instruments" series, which begins filming next month.

Author Cassie broke the news on her Tumblr today. "He's totally cute and adorable and HILARIOUS, and his chemistry with Lily and Jamie is off the charts," she wrote. "I've wanted him for Simon for ages so I am pretty much totally and entirely happy."

Fans of the British TV series "Misfits" will recognize Robert as smart aleck Nathan Young. The actor has numerous other TV credits to his name, as well as the Nic Cage flick "Season of the Witch."

Simon is an integral character in the "Mortal Instruments" universe. Known for his signature message Ts and his rock band's ever-changing moniker, Simon is heroine Clary's oldest friend, who's been nursing an unrequited crush on her for basically forever. He provides a good deal of levity but can kick a bit of butt when necessary. And this chap Robert looks a lot like how we pictured the oft-underdog, so we're excited to see him bring Simon to life.

Robert joins cast actors Jemima West as Isabelle and Kevin Durand and Robert Maillet as Valentine's henchman.
