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 Pettyfer absolutely has to be Jace. He's perfect

Wait a minute. Is she short?
Oh, and I really wish that Alex Pettyfer would play Jace (I can imagine how much you hear that), and Adam Lambert for Magnus! They're really perfect match! :D

Now for Alex Pettyfer.
I don't think anyone's going to stop until we get alex! :L

Re: Now for Alex Pettyfer.
I know right? Almost everyone who says something about Jace says Alex Pettyfer is perfect! If only we were the ones making the choice, haha.

EEEE I'm so excited! I think she'll be perfect for clary! I'm so ready to see who plays Jace, and I know i'm with a lot of people who say that Alex Pettyfer would be perfect!:) Unfortunately that's a slim chance :/

alex is SUPER perfect!! hes too bomb!! hes platinium blonde & sexy!! hehe!! i hope they cast him?!?!?!?!?!?! who's all been casted for the movie...so far i know of lily collins...thats the only one!! :/
Ashley Pukashhwhole on December 29th, 2010 02:24 am (UTC)
oh gee.
I am actually semi-pleased with who they've casted because, well, you're not going to get a spot-on actress every time. I thought Molly Quinn would've been cuter for the part with the enormous amounts of freckles and red hair, and of course, closer to the age, but I really hope she doesn't upset!
I have to admit, I haven't seen her in any roles, but let's hope for the best. I wonder if she'll use her british accent (which I doubt) It'll probably just be like all british actors trying to do a new york accent, sounding southern. .____.
Applauding the casting agents right now-- just hoping they don't ruin the "clary look" with so much make-up. (that's what I like about clary!)
(p.s. I like the photoshop magic you did on her hair, cass) :D

(Anonymous) on December 29th, 2010 07:01 pm (UTC)
well magnus is asain and i am pretty sure lambert is not asain. and i am pretty sure that lambert is not that good of an actor (examples taylor swift and justin beiber)

i can sooo totally see her playing Clary. I AM UBER excited to see the movie!!!!
Xochilt SotoXochilt Soto on December 29th, 2010 07:25 pm (UTC)
heck yes!!!! she is the total CLARY!!! i think she will be great...she is definitely cute..& her red hair makes her even better for the part!! as for jace...well lets just hope hes super hot & sexy like he is in the book!!

I am honestly worried that they're going to mess up the book. Almost every book that has been turned into a movie has gone wrong or leaves out too much detail. I loved reading these books in high school. I really hope they stick to the story and come as close to the characters as possible.

Whaen are they casting the other characters!!!! Will you post when they do? I really want Alex Pettyfer to play Jace but he is really busy I guess I just read I am Number Four (good book by the way) Because hes staring in the movie. I also think they made a good choice in casting Clary!
(Anonymous) on December 30th, 2010 02:34 am (UTC)
I think is Perfect for the role of Clary...just what I imagined in my head while reading the books. And I am SO excited about the movie and can't wait to get my hands on the fourth book!!
