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!

If lily collins and taylor are close then maybe..
Hi CC! Im the girl you once diagonised with a werewolf obscession on one of your blog posts before hehe! And i must say, I love how lily collins = Clary!!

Not only because her looks and her acting abilty is very claryesque but also because i love how lily is close friends with a werewolf actor. So can you imagine if taylor lautner visited the COB set because you know thats what friends of actors do to hang out (i think). And then because he is so charming, what if he could score a cameo role! Like a random wolf from Luke's pack who in the background is the voice that always says 'Yeah!' to whenever luke suggests to do something :p That would be classic! So if as an author if you get invited to visit the set during production time, and you spot taylor lautner you know to do haha ;)
