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 . . .
I think that she'll make a good Clary. She was good in the things that I saw her in, and she looks like she could be a redhead, so that's a good thing, too.

I really hope that they cast Alex Pettyfer as Jace. He is a good actor, and he has been in other action oriented movies, so I definitely think he could pull it off. I've kind of always pictured him as Jace since I first started reading the books when they came out, but I'll more than likely deal anyway.

I really worried more about the cast for Simon. He was my favorite character, and I have a very specific mental picture of him, and I'm not sure anything would really come close, but I hoping they'll do a good job. They seem to be on the right track by their casting of Lily.
