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!

PLEASE just suggest Alex Pettyfer as Jace! I think he is perfect in the way you have described Jace, as if he was born for the role.
I know you have no choice in the actors, but at least try to get the crew to consider.
I couldn't think of anyone more perfect.
Your writing is amazing. Keep it up.

Re: PLEASE TRY!!!!!!
As I have said many times before, the producers are well aware that Alex is a fan favorite.

Re: PLEASE TRY!!!!!!
I read online somewhere that MTV is actually campaigning for Pettyfer as Jace. Could just be a rumor, but it's a promising rumor...

I'm sure whoever they choose will be GORGEOUS. A lot of us didn't ever think of Lily Collins for Clary, but they obviously hit the nail on the head with that choice...so I think we can all take a breather, sit back, and have some faith that Jace, Simon, Isabelle, Alec, Magnus, etc. will all be cast somewhere in the realms of plausibility!
