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!

amazing choice for clary she's just how I pictured her (especially the second picture)
I just wish she was a bit shorter because Clary was supposed to be just over 5 feet tall (so I was picturing anywhere from 5'-5'3)
and Lily is 5'5
but she is stunning and an excellent pick!
The same thing bugged me with twilight haha alice was supposed to be REALLY short and then the girl who played her was almost the same height as kristen stewart
hopefully they will make the rest of the cast taller so it hides the fact that she is not short (:
