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!

Clary Casting
No way! I imagined Clary with bright orange/red hair like the front of the book. Her skin tone isn't right as a natural redhead and her dark eyebrows definitely aren't right for a natural redhead who has freckles. I might be the only one who doesn't see her as Clary on the posts, but I'm a natural redhead and never would have picked her.

Re: Clary Casting
I'm a natural redhead too. Just sayin.'
