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!

She looks adorable and I'm sure she'll be able to pull off Clary.
So far it looks like the casting is going to be great.

And for the people that are saying that she can't act or she doesn't look the part, well, you haven't seen in her in this movie yet, have you? And just because you don't like some of the choices it's kind of wrong not to go see the movie, especially if you love the books and you support the author. But I digress.

Anyway, congratulations, Cassie. I know this is probably super exciting for you. I know that as soon as I saw the news I started screaming and ran to my mom. :P
Did I mention it's almost midnight here? ;)
I can't wait to see who they cast for the other characters!
