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!

Casting
After a lengthy debate with a friend we've come to the conclusion that this casting is not ideal. If you were to direct your attention to youtube, you can see an overwhelming fan response for Alexz Johnson to play Clary. Further, the role of Simon should be played by Kristopher Turner. Jace should be played by Alex Pettyfer.
They all just fit so perfectly, its crazy to think of anyone else for these roles.

Re: Casting
*is puzzled*

I don't really know who this is directed to. You can write to Screen Gems, I guess, if you want.

Re: Casting
So who is all auditioning for the role of Isabelle?
Everyone is talking about Jace, Magnus, and Alec, but not many people have talked about Isabelle.
Who do you think would be a good Isabelle?

Re: Casting
They are not going to try to cast any of the other roles until after they have Jace.
