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!

Alex is perfekt Jace....I`v seen that there were rumors about Nico Tortorella playing Jace and I sooo hope that this wont be the case.

Jace's Character
Alex Pettyfer should play Jace! He played in I am #4 and has the sex appeal that we imagine Jace to have. Plus he looks like he can portray Jace's attitude. He would also look lovely next to Lily Collins.

Re: Jace's Character
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU! he looks way better than jamie campbell bower next to lily collins. plus he has that bad boy look on him, while the other guy looks too old to be next to her

jamie campbell bower
jamie campbell bower is NOT what i would like to be jace to tell you the truth but i havent seen his acting to know exactly how hes like. however he better try really extra hard if hes gonna be jake cause Lily Collins looks wayy out of his league.

Jace Wayland
I think you should rethink who plays the role of Jace Wayland. I personally think that Alex Pettyfer should play the role, he looks more the character than Jamie Campbell Bower. Just saying.

Re: Jace Wayland
Glad to hear you think you know how my characters look better than I do, but

1) I don't control casting
2) Alex Pettyfer was offered the part and refused it.
