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!

No disrespect to Mr. Alex Pettyfer. I think he is a great actor and i think he would probably do justice to the character. However, he is the standard hot, blonde, young actor right now and people are going to want him for everything. His look is standard enough to play a number of our favorite characters. He could be Jace, Peeta from H.G., Cole from shiver. and hes already landed beastly and i am number four. So personally i would like to see some new blood. My suggestion is Drew Van Acker. He is super cute and hes a good actor. That being said...i won't be disappointed if Alex Pettyfer gets the part :)
