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!

Im excited
Please Please Please let her be a better actress than the Kristen Stewart and not ruin the the book. And i hope the directer knows every girl who has read these books has high expectations for Jace-There has to be looks and talent, Unlike Robert Pat. In all please do not let these movies turn into Twilight, bc the books are amazing and the movies suck. Director if you are reading this Please do not make the humor of the books go away just to make the movies short, i would be willing to sit there for five hours just as long as the movie is good.
