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!

If you look at the TMI IMDB movie page, you can see that they finally added Lily Collins in the cast list and the director is also listed:

What about Jace?
Who is going to be Jace? I would personally love to see Alex Pettyfer as Jace Wayland. He's perfect Jace for me; slender, blond, handsome, muscular enough. Not so tall, but u can't have everything u want, right?

Clary looks great, but I'm hoping for a great Isabelle...
I did like the idea of Molly Quinn, but I've seen the Blind Side, and Lily Collins can act. I'm sure she'll do a good job.
Personally though, my favorite character was Isabelle. When I read the books my first thought was that the girl from A Series of Unfortunate Events would be perfect! All you have to do, is imagine her with darker hair. :)

I can totally see her as Clary. She looks almost kinda like the clary in my head. Fingers crossed that she'll actually be like her character in the movie. She just needs some bold green colored contacts . Now all we need is to know who is being cast as Jace. Dont hold out on Me, miss Clare, i need to know . . .

Casting for Jace
Hi im so excited about the movie!!
I love the books..
I had this idea that either Alex Pettyfer or Cody Linely would make a great Jace. What do you guys think?

I'd also like Alex Pettyfer to play Jace.
Why? Well, I think the article from MTV tells some of the reasons:

Alex Pettyfer should play Jace!! I think it would be such a good match!

Jace will be harder to cast because Clary is beautiful for people who know her, but isn't a 'top model', whereas Jace is supposed to be gorgeous...
