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!

Casting for Jace
Hi im so excited about the movie!!
I love the books..
I had this idea that either Alex Pettyfer or Cody Linely would make a great Jace. What do you guys think?

Re: Casting for Jace
No offense, but I think Cody Linely is wayy too associated with Disney. I mean he could look the part possibly, but I feel like the lines he delivers and the acting will come off as somewhat cheesy. Same for people who want Sterling Knight. Even for stuff outside of Sonny With a Chance, he sounded cheesy. I could be totally wrong here, but that's how I feel. Alex Pettyfer is a good option. Or some awesome unknown who is secretly Jace but we just don't know it. :)
