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 my Gosh!!! I think she is perfect for the part of Clary! Well...she looks the part, anyway. I have never seen anything she's played a role in but lets just cross our fingers and hope she is good. I am personally wondering who they will get to play the role of Izzy. She is going to be a hard one to match with any actresses. Jace is going to be a really hard find, too. I am so excited for the movie!!! It is going to be awesome.
