'Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones' Stars Pose For First Cast Photo

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

With production on the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's urban fantasy, "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," in full swing, it was only a matter of time before we peeped the young cast—smiling angelically, of course— in an official photo. And, look! Here it is!

The stars recently took some time off from destroying demons to align for this fancy photocall, the first of many to come, we suspect. Pictured from left to right are Robert Sheehan (Simon), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace), Lily Collins (Clary), Kevin Zegers (Alec) and Jemima West (Isabelle).

A few things in this image jump out at us right away: First, are the darkly dyed 'dos sported by Kevin and Jemima, in keeping with the Lightwood siblings' raven-colored roots. Though both actors are quite comely with their natural locks, we're happy to see the hair department has kept it close to author Cassie's character descriptions. Second, is the utter attractiveness of Robert, who plays Clary's long-suffering BFF. Maybe it's just us, but is he almost too hot to play Simon? I mean, that deep V... We're getting a little tingly over here. If we were Clary, the choice between Jace and Simon wouldn't be so clear...

"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," also starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Lena Headey, will hit theaters in August 2013.
