Jared Harris joins the party to play Hodge. Born August 24, 1961 makes him the oldest member of the cast thus far at 50. But to be truthful I pictured him as an older character just not sure about this old? Perhaps he was older than Valentine and the rest of the circle. Cassandra Clare is very happy with this choice so if she’s happy then I’m happy too.
Hodge is also a really complicated character. He’s not entirely bad, not entirely good. He’s a brilliant man led down a bad path a long time ago and he can’t turn back, but he does love those kids he tutored. So if you’ve seen either Mad Men or Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows (in which he was Moriarty), you know this guy, and you know he’s fantastic at moral ambiguity.
He’s got SAG awards and Emmys all over the place and I think he’ll really nail Hodge’s moral dilemma. Welcome, Jared!
I told you it wasn’t going to be a boring day!
Now if they will just give us Alec!!!
