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!

Okay, yeah the guy looks like Jace (even though most of the photos online are from years ago...) but WHY is he so arrogant?? I mean Jace is arrogant, but he just needs to be able to act the character, not be arrogant in real life. It's not even cute arrogant like Jace lol, he's just being a snob.

I hope this isn't true(it is a gossip site, but read the comments as well!) because if it is, I don't want him acting as Jace. We can do better. And even if it is true, I still am kind of getting sick of all of Pettyfer's publicity and I am starting to really yearn for an unknown. Just an opinion.

God, I'm going to be restless until they cast Jace! lol

But then again, I guess all actors have their flaws.
