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!

Wow, she looks like she'll do Clary justice. :) [Maybe a bit too pretty, if you're to go on the character's opinion of her own beauty.]

I'm really curious about the actor for Jace, too, although if I'm honest I'm more concerned about Alec - I think he'll be a more difficult character to capture, his personality seems so far beyond anything I've ever seen in a movie that it'll take a hell of a person to portray him without seeming like a brooding emo kid. XD

I don't think an actor set to play a character should be judged on whether or not they meet your expectations for what the person should look like. =/ It's whether or not they can capture the character's personality that I think really matters.

Now that I think of it, Simon might be a hard one as well... :)
