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!

oh gee.
I am actually semi-pleased with who they've casted because, well, you're not going to get a spot-on actress every time. I thought Molly Quinn would've been cuter for the part with the enormous amounts of freckles and red hair, and of course, closer to the age, but I really hope she doesn't upset!
I have to admit, I haven't seen her in any roles, but let's hope for the best. I wonder if she'll use her british accent (which I doubt) It'll probably just be like all british actors trying to do a new york accent, sounding southern. .____.
Applauding the casting agents right now-- just hoping they don't ruin the "clary look" with so much make-up. (that's what I like about clary!)
(p.s. I like the photoshop magic you did on her hair, cass) :D
