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!

I really like the idea of Lily Cole as Clary. She looks good for the part and I think red hair could suit her. I wouldn't however want her to have such curly hair as Clary. i always imagined them as bigger and softer, and trust me when i tell you, if Clary had curly hair like that, it would look ridiculous half the time in the book. Take it from someone who knows. I'm glad they picked her, now let us just hope she can act :)

Also, I will just die if they do not pick Alex Pettyfer for Jace, He is definitely the best likeness, but unfortunately he is afraid of flying, which could influence his decision on whether to take the part or not. Hyperventilating over here. *Whoo, hoo, whoo, hoo*
