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!

Well the second picture is a little creep I think, but I have seen the Blindside and I think the movie is AMAZING! She wasn't in it much, but I think that when she was in it was a brilliant. THe movie should be very good as long as they follow the story line. I hope they dont burcher the book's greatiness like they did with Twilight and basical all movies based of books. I have yet to see a movie based off a book that was correct and good. Wait, I have see Harry Potter. That might be just because I love the British!

First off, I think this is totally totally awesome. Not only is Lily Collins a talented actress (She really stuck out for me inside the Blind Side), but she does have the physical aspects of Clary down almost perfectly.

In my mind as long as they stick green contacts in then I'll be super happy. And as long as they follow the basic plotline of the series that'll be another bonus as well.

Thomas Dekker as Alec Lightwood
I TOTALLY think Thomas Dekker would make a great Alec Lightwood!!! Here's a link to his best picture! http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://static.tvguide.com/MediaBin/Galleries/Imported/BioPix/A/bio26/Thomas_dekker01.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.tvguide.com/celebrities/thomas-dekker/176709&usg=__Jjc6jJ97rfXVV0uLfL5gNtD_Nkk=&h=150&w=218&sz=48&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=BJaFzOTf7jiKvM:&tbnh=119&tbnw=170&prev=/images%3Fq%3DThomas%2BDekker%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D1680%26bih%3D898%26gbv%3D2%26tbs%3Disch:1&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=616&vpy=464&dur=3715&hovh=120&hovw=174&tx=95&ty=74&ei=1VQjTYnuGY-u8AbkgvnZDQ&oei=1VQjTYnuGY-u8AbkgvnZDQ&esq=1&page=1&ndsp=55&ved=1t:429,r:26,s:0

Oh my Gosh!!! I think she is perfect for the part of Clary! Well...she looks the part, anyway. I have never seen anything she's played a role in but lets just cross our fingers and hope she is good. I am personally wondering who they will get to play the role of Izzy. She is going to be a hard one to match with any actresses. Jace is going to be a really hard find, too. I am so excited for the movie!!! It is going to be awesome.

Make sure though that you don't geet as bad of actors as Twilight did even though they are hot. Just get good and hot actors. She'll be perfect for Clary!

I can see her as Clary. She has the right 'Tude for it. I really hope Alex plays Jace. When I found out this was becoming a movie, I totally freaked out! I hope when I get my book published, it becomes a moive. That would be...so...COOL!

I like her although I thought she woulda been great for Tessa if there were a film version for clockwork angel (hint hint)... I also think Austin Robert Butler could be a possible jace? he looks like he can play that smart ass trait that jace has well but could still do the bad ass side too :) I'm so excited!

I Think Alex Pettyfer Should be Jace he is perfect for the role!. Or Jackson Rathbone I mean he has blonde and curly hair and have you seen him in twilight? He is so dark and mysterious

Part of Me was origanilly hoping for Alexz Johnson to play Clary. Now, I'm happy Lily was cast. I think she'll do a better job. I just really hope they do a good job picking someone to play Jace. Prefrably, Alex Pettyfer!!!! (= <3 I'm happy so far!!
