Clare seems really happy with the news; according to her Tumblr:
I would not want either of these guys mad at me so I’m just going to say that they seem very henchpersonish to me and I am excited to have them on board the project (and be rounding out the cast.)
My Reaction:

Evil Henchmen on the loose! This is totally exciting news! I hope they cast Valentine soon. Clare previously reported that Alec Lightwood has been cast along with Isabelle Lightwood (Jemima West) but was hold off because of the filming schedule. Few things Clare confirms is that:
he’s a British actor, he has dark hair, I’m pretty sure you know who he is, I like him a lot, I’m pleased he’s going to be Alec. He and Jemima are going to be gorgeous siblings.

I hope they announce Alec soon as well as Simon but according to Clare we won't be getting casting news for Simon until mid-July
Simon’s not cast; don’t look out for Simon casting till mid-July, because of Reasons. (They are good Reasons.)
I'm really looking forward when they finally announce the whole cast. I've been a big fan of the series since the moment I read City of Bones; I also quite RANTED here about the casting of Jace Wayland but I'm quite happy how the casting has been rolling. I hope they start shooting really really soon!
