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!

Actors :)
I think she'll be great for the part of Clary. Please do not make Alex Pettyfer, Jace. It will completely ruin the movie for me and loads of others. He's not good enough. He will not be able to cast and portray Jace, as Jace is so.... (I can't explain him). Pettyfer will not live up to the part. Thank you, your an amazing writer, and I adore your books. I am slowly anticipating the release to the sequels and prequels :)) x

Re: Actors :)
Well, that's a change of pace at least.

Yeah she will definitely make a great Clary! I'm so excited! I can't wait to see who plays Jace! I love the series and can't wait!

Any ideas for the casting of Jace?

Yeah, I also see Alex as Jace. When I saw him first time I don't really think that he is good for Jace. But now I don't see anyone else as Jace. Lily is too old for Clary, but I think that she can handle it. I have one condition if she play Clary:she must colour her hair because Clary's was red-orange.

Gaspard Uliell
Is it true that Gaspard Uliell was cast as Alec.I have never seen him before, but I do think that after seeing some pictures he would make a good Alec in terms odfapperence.

isnt Jace blonde in the books? he's described as angelic, blonde and pale. tho i love taylor lautnor and his acting acting is good he doesnt suit the part.
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on February 9th, 2011 02:52 am (UTC)
Well, since he's not in the movie, that would seem to solve that problem.

Thomas Dekker
I think she's actually perfect for the part! And, obviously, Alex IS the perfect Jace, and so I think Thomas Dekker could play a nice Sebastian/Jonathan, but he'll have to wait till City of Glass.

Taylor Kitsch would be perfect to play Jace. He also starred in Xmen Wolverine.

I know that everyone is super excited about the casting because we all love the characters. While I like Alex, he has a lot on his plate. I know the casting team will make a strong choice and I'm all for the chance to fall for an unknown. ;)

TAYLOR KITSCH as jace!all the way
