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!

New Actress
Sure, she's pretty, and a great actress, but somehow she seems to perfect for the role of Clary. She'd be an awesome Isabelle tho, now that I think of it. I don't know, I was just so excited to have Emma Stone as Clary, she seemed perfect and not looks wise. But I guess it's not my decision.

Your new book to the series by the way looks fabulous! I can't wait to read it!

Keep up the good work, and don't worry, I'll survive with Lily Collin's as Clary :D

Re: New Actress
I doubt anyone was worried.
