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 should be Jace! He's perfect.

Good choice
I think that she will be perfect Clary and I think that Alex Pettyfer is ideal Jace.

sorry- but the ending was terrible
I'm not trying to be rude but I am really disappointed w/ the ending of City of Bones... brother and sister? really? kissing? I wish you would've revealed that a little sooner so I could've put it down then

Re: sorry- but the ending was terrible
You know, you can find full synopses of all the books on Wikipedia. If you don't like surprises, why didn't you just read them before you read the books? By the way, Clary and Jace aren't actually related. Sorry you didn't get that. Most people do.

I can see her as Clary! Also, I could see Alex Pettyfer (Wild Child) as jace!

she seems okay...kinda prettier than i pictured but oh well :) who thinks Drew van Acker would be an almost-perfect Jace? (impossible to get a *truly* perfect Jace...no human is beautiful enough ;) but Drew comes reeeeallly close....)

Re: Jace...
I just looked him up on IMDB and he's might just get my vote.....

I have also been wondering... How will the demons be pulled off? And I would live to see Alex Petteyfer as Jace!!! :D

i dont have taylor pictured as jace. but i can say i would like to see the original victoria from twilight would make a perfect clary and the girl who plays donna from that 70s show would make the perfect jocelyn. dean cane would make an excellent luke. the guy who played doc on back to the future if hes still alive would make a wonderful bane.

I just hope they can make her hair a bit brighter...Its to dark, I think, but I guess shes a good choise...
(Anonymous) on January 3rd, 2011 06:02 am (UTC)
i think she would make an excellent Clary, but for Jace i was thinking Alex Pettyfer. He is perfect for Jace. and thomas dekker would be a great Alec. just my opinion...

Someone Agrees!
yes! Thank you! Somebody who agrees...I bet someone else does too, but I'm just to lazy to read ALL the comments...i don't have anything else to do so...I guess I will.
