Elyas M’Barek has snagged a coveted role as a vampire in the film version of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments. The question is which one?

According to The Hollywood Reporter M’Barek has landed a role as a vampire, but it was not specific as to character name. Though he is not a household name in the United States, M’Barek is quite the draw in his native Germany. THR describes him as, “A veteran of German TV sitcoms, M’Barek became one of Germany’s biggest box office draws with his starring role in the cross-culture romantic comedy Turkish For Beginners, in which he plays a stereotypical German-Turkish macho.”

There is no word on when M’Barek may show up in Toronto where filming is in full swing. Over the last two days Jamie Campbell-Bower and Lily Collins have been seen filming in the streets. One shot in particular shows Jace’s runes pretty clearly.

Given his usual type of character, who do you think he is likely to be?
