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 like Lily in the Blindside but she isn't exactly who I pictured for Clary, I always pictured Molly Quinn, but Lily isn't a bad choice either, they could have gone with someone a lot worse so I am glad that went with someone, and I can't wait to see the movie on the big screen. I know that everyone wants Alex for Jace, I think that he could pull it off, but he is a big up and comer and you never know what he could have on his plate, he just got done filming a movie and he is already filming another one. The person that I always thought would make the perfect Jace would have been Charlie Hunnam back when he was way younger and had the light blond shaggy hair and no facial, he would have been perfect. I also hope they get buildings and sets right, that's what always bugged me. But I am still so extremely excited to see the movie and congrats Cassandra, this has to be a very happy moment for you!
