Kevin Zegers has booked a leading role in the highly anticipated film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, JustJared.com can exclusively reveal!

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is based on the first book in the best-selling series by Cassandra Clare.

Her entire life is changed on her quest to get her mom back.

Kevin, 27, will play Alec Lightwood, the gay brother of Isabelle (Jemima West). He is in love with Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) and dislikes Clary because Jace is in love with her and not him. The film is scheduled to be released on August 23, 2013.
