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!

I absolutely love Lily but I don't see her as a Clary. But like Clare said nobodies gonna look exactly like we imagined. Who I think should be Clary is Emma Roberts. There's just something in her face that's well.....not in Lily's .So I'm a little disappointed but I know once she has her red curly hair and is in character Ill see what I saw in Emma's face. And remember I'm not trying to be rude to Lily I just think(for my taste) she isn't the right Clary.

I'm honestly really relieved they didn't cast Emma Roberts. She's the opposite of my mental Clary. So I think yes, we do all have different images in our heads.
