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!

She does make a really good Clary, and though I imagined someone different, I think Lily better fits the description.
But now the important part is who will play Jace.
As many others have said before me, Jace will either make the film or break it.

In my opinion, Alex Pettyfer would be an amazing Jace. I hope he auditions for the role.

And are Lily's eyes brown? (I know, I know, she can wear coloured contacts)I was just wondering, her eyes are very pretty.
