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!

Re: Questions that I'm hoping doesn't annoy you.
1) My -ah.
2) She is as surely Clary as anything is sure in the movie biz.
3) People don't 'turn gay", they are born gay or straight or whatever. Aline flat-out says what's going on with her in CoG : she kissed Jace because she wasn't sure "any guy was her type" — so basically she's not sure she's attracted to men at all. That's where she's at.
4) It's fine, there's a big fanfic section over at ff.net, I believe.
