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!

I love how the producers are listening to the fans viewpoints, I really do. However, I hate to say this, but I hope they don't rely on us for all the casting. I would rather have a well-acted movie,than a movie with actors who just look the part and who people swoon over. I'm hoping they hold auditions for the other characters.

*laughs* A very balanced viewpoint. They've actually looked at quite a few actors for Jace. Alex is just getting all the press!

Yes!!! I agree. I would much rather have good actors. Make up can do wonders in the movie world. I really want it acted well.
