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!

One prob-blame-o!
I can't get over Lily's eyebrows. I've NEVER pictured Clary with such thick eyebrows! >.

Re: Actress!
well even though emma stone would be a good choice, she is contracted for the new spider-man reboot, and possibly sequels. and she also died her hair blonde.

Alex Pettyfer
Alex Pettyfer just has to be Jace, he looks exactly like him and besides no one else is hot enough to pull Jace off. Cant wait till the movie comes out!!!(:

i know they've already casted Clary but when i think Clary i picture Molly C. Quinn from castle especially since her hair basically matches the cover. She to me has the first appearance of fragile like how Clary comes off....

Alex Pettyfer is too baby faced for Jace, haha :) I think that someone more flamboyant should play Jace :D

I think she is beautiful and I cant wait for the movie! It is so hard picturing the characters whenever I read, but the one character I can always see is Magnus Bane and he always looks like Jay Manuel from Americas Next Top Model

Lily And Her Brows
She's great, except she should trim those eyebrows, they just look a litte heavy for clary's delicate features.

Other than that she is perfect!!!!! :) I love her, I just hope they find a good Jace, according to an article, Alex Pettyfer just declined The Mortal Instruments option to be in the Last Apprentice
