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 and Clary
Lily is perfect for Clary. Maybe Thomas Dekker can be Jace. They'll look great together.

Re: Jace and Clary
True, but Alex can deliver just the right amount of arrogance,charm, sex appeal, and vulnerability to make him the perfect Jace.

Re: Jace and Clary

Re: Jace and Clary
NO NO NO, Alex Pettyfer is the absolutely P-E-R-F-E-C-T for Jace.

Re: Jace and Clary
I think Thomas Dekker would be more fitting to play Simon. He's suppose to be handsome, but they could make Thomas a little geeky too. He's amazing, btw, and I'm glad someone else appreciates his name. Haha :)
