    He’s at least 20 years too young.

    • Laura says:

      Actually he is just 6 years younger than Hodge. Hodge was 36 years old, but many people think he was like 60 years old…

    He’s a little young…hot… but young…but hot.

    too young!!

  4. Cátia says:

    I know that everyone is sayng that he is too young but in the books Hodge is younger than Valentine. So Jon Cor is not that young.

    • Tess says:

      Finally someone on my level! haha Hodge is actually about 36 according to Cassie so Jon Cor is the perfect age (he’s 30)

    This production needs to take a leaf out of the Flash’s playbook and should cast good adult actors. The relationship between Barry and Jo West is the best father son relationship on television. At the moment this world seems full of hot young people which is bland and unrealistic. I like watching shows that have several different generations.

    • ChrisGa says:

      The Flash’s Barry and Joe is one of the best relationships, of any kind, on television right now; it’ll never happen, but both of those guys deserve Emmy noms IMO. That said, Alan Van Sprang is definitely an adult actor and, if you ever saw Reign, a very good one. Not to mention, a very sexy one.

    In terms of casting “age wise”, Hodge was 36 in the book (not in his 60s like some believe) and Jon is 30. Only 6 years younger than the Hodge character.

  7. Sara says:

    ummmm… this is the first casting call they made on this show I don’t get at all. Isn’t he supposed to be the grey-streaked, thin loner-guy with a beaky nose nobody but Valentine wanted to hang out with at school? I do not really see beefy surfer dude up there pulling that look off. And he is so PRETTY – will they write out his scarred face in order to save hat for the screen? wouldn’t blame them, but… still!
