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!

hey Cassandra, I know you have no control over casting but would you be able to suggest actors for the part?
I just saw this guy's picture and he is PERFECT for Jace, and, around the perfect age to play him too. He was on Life Unexpected and he could def pull off the part.
his name is Austin Robert Butler guys what do you think?
(I love Alex but I'm saying in case that wouldn't work...)

btw Happy New Years!!!

Re: Jace
No, I cannot suggest actors for the parts. Sorry.
