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!

Because hair color and eye color are not the definitive thing about a character. I'd rather see Clary a brunette than played by a bad actress and I am glad the producers feel the same. (Also, there are good hair dye jobs and bad ones. And does anyone actually give a crap that Daniel Radcliffe doesn't have "piercing green eyes"?)

No...I wanted to be Clary. I so hoped they would hold auditions. I'm perfect for her, I swear.
Ugh, this makes me so upset.

i reakcon she is great!!!!

but please DO NOT use Taylor Lautner for Jace, he is already in twilight. choose someone that has never been seen before, don't choose any big names or your fans will be at war..

I just recently became obsessed with the serious but I am very excited to have them turned into movies. Not really what I imagined for Clary but she could blow us all away when it comes out.

And to those who haven't seen the Blind Side.. I have.. and I don't remember her. Although I'm sure she's probably Sandra Bullock's daughter in it. :)

And that should say series, not serious. Whoops.

Lily Collins
I just checked in on your site after a couple of weeks away, Lily Collins(Phil Collins daughter) is a great fit. She has an innocent look about her, even the little freckles across her nose. I can't wait to see who plays Jace and Simon.

Shes perfect!!!

I never thought of her as a clary, but who knows, I think she might surprise us. I saw her in The Blind Side and thought she was a really great actress. I think this movie might make her career. :)
