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!

Since Lily doesnt have green eyes, can't they give her like colored contacts. Cuz face it clary is the flaming hair and emerald eyes. The same goes for Jace, can they give the actor gold colored contacts? So Cassandra... If you could mention that to the producer I can garentee that fans will be relieved. ( and it doesnt have to be contacts just somehing that will change their eye colour.) Please and Thank you.

Re: Cast
The producers know what the characters look like, really. They do. Our of curiosity, do you feel that the Harry Potter movies were ruined by Dan Radcliffe not having green eyes?
