Shadowhunters adds Luke and Alec

They are on fire on the Shadowhunters work place thingy! Just a couple of days after announcing that Katherine McNamara will be playing Clary, today ABC Family has announced two more casting news.

Matthew Daddario was cast as Alec Lightwood, brother to Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) and Isaiah Mustafa will be taking the role of Luke Garroway, father figure to Clary, in love all his life with Jocelyn and, in the show, he’ll be a NYPD detective (apart from being the adorable werewolf and gorgeous leader of the pack, that we know he is).

I’m kind of excited about Isaiah Mustafa playing Luke, I mean, I never imagined him like that, specially with the blue eyes/brown hair description, but Isaiah is gorgeous and I think he could be AMAZING!!!! Full disclose, I have a HUGE crush on Luke’s character since the first book, I root for him, and Isaiah seems to have all the charisma necessary, so well done people!

About Matthew Daddario as Alec… well… the blue eyes man, it could make a huge difference… I mean, Alex HAS TO HAVE blue eyes and black hair, he just has to, it’s Magnus favorite combo. If only Matthew had his sister’s (Alexandra Daddario) eyes, he would be super perfect. As it is, I hope he wears contacts, other than that, I’m sure he’ll be great. I do hope they make sure that he has amazing chemistry with Magnus though.

ABC renews Galavant, Castle, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., etc… and they cancel Forever

Oh ABC, I’m really happy with you today, though it took it took you long enough! The network has announced yesterday the renewal of 22 shows, including some that made me real happy, such as Castle that will be back for its 8th season (with Stana Katic’s return still up in the air); Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will be back for a 3rd season; Marvel’s Agent Carter was granted a 2nd season (and it’s probably the one I’m most happy about!) and Galavant, that amazing comedy, will be back for a second year!


Other shows renewed include Grey’s Anatomy (season 12), How to Get Away With Murder (season 2), Scandal (season 5), Nashville (season 4), Once Upon a Time (season 5), Secrets and Lies (season 2), Black-ish (season 2), Fresh Off the Boat (season 2), The Goldbergs (season 3), The Middle (season 7), Modern Family (season 7), …


Not everything was good news though, ABC has decided to pull the plug on Forever, not renewing it for a second season, and Resurrection.
