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!

Re: yes, Alex again.
I totally understand that. I think Alex is a great choice — I just know they've also been looking at other actors, which they wouldn't bother doing if they were only going to greenlight the film if Alex was in it. Also, it's not your fault, the gossip sites can be very persuasive.

Re: yes, Alex again.
Thanks. ^_^ Oher actors, hmm, could be good too, and your point makes sense. Heh. I don't normally tend to frequent any kind of gossip media, so I find it hard to tell what's true and what isn't.
Do you think AP's acting ability will be up to scratch, able to play Jace? I admit his looks are perfect, but that's not as important.
