movie news — casting Clary  
Just dropping an entry to announce that, as reported by Deadline, Lily Collins, who starred in The Blind Side and the upcoming Priest**, has been cast to play Clary in the movie adaptation of City of Bones. The producers and director have worked with her before and say great things, and I have to admit right now I haven't seen The Blind Side but am obviously going to go out and watch it NOW.

She is completely adorable and looks right for Clary to me:






[and with curly hair!]

And now, of course, as this article notes, presumably the speculation about who plays Jace will begin in earnest . . .

** And apparently is also famous for dating Taylor Lautner — did I know this? No, but my readers apparently know everything. :)


ETA: There are now 590 comments on the post and I think 589 mention Alex Pettyfer. We get it. Really, we do! It would be hard to miss. Just a reminder that I don't have any influence over casting!

Jace actor
Hay I love the mortal instruments series and I thinK Austin butler would be a perfect for the role of jace. See for urself

Actors :)
I think she'll be great for the part of Clary. Please do not make Alex Pettyfer, Jace. It will completely ruin the movie for me and loads of others. He's not good enough. He will not be able to cast and portray Jace, as Jace is so.... (I can't explain him). Pettyfer will not live up to the part. Thank you, your an amazing writer, and I adore your books. I am slowly anticipating the release to the sequels and prequels :)) x

Re: Actors :)
Well, that's a change of pace at least.

Yeah she will definitely make a great Clary! I'm so excited! I can't wait to see who plays Jace! I love the series and can't wait!

Any ideas for the casting of Jace?

Yeah, I also see Alex as Jace. When I saw him first time I don't really think that he is good for Jace. But now I don't see anyone else as Jace. Lily is too old for Clary, but I think that she can handle it. I have one condition if she play Clary:she must colour her hair because Clary's was red-orange.

Gaspard Uliell
Is it true that Gaspard Uliell was cast as Alec.I have never seen him before, but I do think that after seeing some pictures he would make a good Alec in terms odfapperence.

isnt Jace blonde in the books? he's described as angelic, blonde and pale. tho i love taylor lautnor and his acting acting is good he doesnt suit the part.
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on February 9th, 2011 02:52 am (UTC)
Well, since he's not in the movie, that would seem to solve that problem.

Thomas Dekker
I think she's actually perfect for the part! And, obviously, Alex IS the perfect Jace, and so I think Thomas Dekker could play a nice Sebastian/Jonathan, but he'll have to wait till City of Glass.

Nice photo shoot of "Lily Collins". Meet with lots of dating singles in adult community. http://www.adultfindout.co.nz

Taylor Kitsch would be perfect to play Jace. He also starred in Xmen Wolverine.
(Anonymous) on February 9th, 2011 08:29 pm (UTC)
I know that everyone is super excited about the casting because we all love the characters. While I like Alex, he has a lot on his plate. I know the casting team will make a strong choice and I'm all for the chance to fall for an unknown. ;)

JACE
TAYLOR KITSCH as jace!all the way

Okay, yeah the guy looks like Jace (even though most of the photos online are from years ago...) but WHY is he so arrogant?? I mean Jace is arrogant, but he just needs to be able to act the character, not be arrogant in real life. It's not even cute arrogant like Jace lol, he's just being a snob.

I hope this isn't true(it is a gossip site, but read the comments as well!) because if it is, I don't want him acting as Jace. We can do better. And even if it is true, I still am kind of getting sick of all of Pettyfer's publicity and I am starting to really yearn for an unknown. Just an opinion.

God, I'm going to be restless until they cast Jace! lol

But then again, I guess all actors have their flaws.
Tamaira ChristiansonTamaira Christianson on February 10th, 2011 03:55 am (UTC)
As long as they do a better job at actully following the books story line and cast people who actually have some resemblance to the characters the way the books tell us this movie should be fantastic ! These books are fabulous and deserve to be told the way they are not some screen writers messed up version and casting agents horrible ideas of how the characters should look . So don't mess up like The Twilight saga and Percy Jackson movie makers have done ! Stay true :)

This girl looks like the perfect Clary !!
Tamaira ChristiansonTamaira Christianson on February 10th, 2011 03:59 am (UTC)
Ok if we are going on looks alone Alex could very much be Jace . I have no idea about his acting skill though .
legna69legna69 on February 10th, 2011 06:46 am (UTC)
for jace part
Alex Pettyfer is awsome for jace part!! when i read the books, i saw his picture somewhere and i pictured him as jace, he should defenitely take the part. you have any say like to choose who's gonna play in the movie since you wrote the books? it would be awsome if you would

werka1001@onet.pl
I think that Alexz Johnson will be better than Lily Collins. For me Alexz Johnson is perfect to play Clary.

"I think that Alexz Johnson will be better than Lily Collins."

But... they already cast Lily.

Alex Pettyfer as Jace
alex should definitely NOT be Jace in City of Bones!! Jace is supposed to be 17, not 27!! alex looks too old to play Jace and someone else should be found to be Jace

Re: Alex Pettyfer as Jace

Re: alex pettyfer
Chad Michael Murray is 30. I don't have any say in casting but I do know it's unlikely they'd cast anyone who would be twice Jace's age.
