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!

Oh love her! I was hoping for Molly Quinn but I'm very happy with Lily Collins too! :D

Oic. Thanks for explaining. :D Sooooo excited! I may have to go re-watch "The Blind Side" now to get a feel for Lily on-screen.

I thought Molly Quinn too
Me too, Lily Collins looks great but I don't know if they can make her convincing as a 15 year old
