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!

She is perfect!!!! That is how Clary looked to me.....now I can't wait to see Jace!!!

Alex Pettyfer should NOT be Jace!
Jace should be hotter! Alex Pettyfer is more like the type of guy to play Peeta from the hunger games!

amazing choice for clary she's just how I pictured her (especially the second picture)
I just wish she was a bit shorter because Clary was supposed to be just over 5 feet tall (so I was picturing anywhere from 5'-5'3)
and Lily is 5'5
but she is stunning and an excellent pick!
The same thing bugged me with twilight haha alice was supposed to be REALLY short and then the girl who played her was almost the same height as kristen stewart
hopefully they will make the rest of the cast taller so it hides the fact that she is not short (:

Cast for Jace
Well since I started reading your books, the one person that I always picture to be the best Jace, because he naturally has the look and he can play his personality perfectly, is Alex Pettyfer. I hope you can look into him because he just screams "Jace" :)

Re: Cast for Jace

Im soooooo excited the books are becoming a movie and I think she will make a great Clary...now as for Jace I know you have no hold over who gets the part but in my opinion I think Alex Pettyfer should play the part hes EXACTLY what I picture when I think of Jace heres a couple links to him in case you or anyone else is curious =)


Cassie Clarecassandraclare on January 6th, 2011 05:13 am (UTC)
There are about 900 posts on here suggesting Alex so I don't think there's anyone left to be curious!

(Anonymous) on January 6th, 2011 09:29 am (UTC)

Jace Wayland
What a great pick for Clary.Now if we could just get Alex Pettyfer on for Jace I would be soooo happy!
(Anonymous) on January 6th, 2011 07:00 pm (UTC)
Alex Pettyfer would be perfect for Jace. Maybe have a talk to the casting director and see what you can do about getting him to auditinon please

I love how everyone who posts this thinks they are the first person to have had this idea.

Can't do a thang!
OMG! Don't you guys know! Alex Pettyfer has a super good chance. They did an article about it on MTV. The link is on Page 16 of the comments. Plus, Cassandra can't do anything about it. I'm pretty sure she doesn't have much say. Somewhere, she said that she trusts the directors vision. She can't do anything about, really. She get's it. Alex Pettyfer should play Jace. I agree, but what ever happens, happens. Suck it up! I'm just glad it's becoming a movie! I hope one of my books becomes a movie...read my stories on my LiveJournal!
-Inspired by Cassandra Clare-
