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!

Great Choice!
I didn't really know who she was until now but I think this is an awesome pick for Clary! I love that she's under the radar because that means most people wont have an already formed opinion of her. She sure does look like Clary.

I just watched the trailer for priest and it looks like she is an amazing actress as well.

Now if only they do just as amazing a job casting Jace. My vote goes for Alex Pettyfer but if not, an unknown would be really really nice.

Thanks for the update!
