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!

The choice
Nice pick but I'm hoping the crew makes her come off as having an insecure side. The woman above comes off as ridiculously pretty with too much confidence. So, in other words, a pretty Clary with an outer appearance of insecurity.

I'm excited to see who they pick as Jace! Hopefully we can avoid any Twilight characters or disney stars ^_^ and stick to the age/physical appearances. I.e. Jace coming off as manly and not being portrayed by those twin boys from the disney channel. Zac and Cody? Yeah.

I'm excited to see how this movie turns out! Definitely dragging my boyfriend there!
