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!

ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE. THAT'S NOTHING AS AWESOME AS I PICTURED CLARY. I HATE IT.
I THINK THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE BLUE EYES AND HAVE BETTER (AND SHORTER THAN THAT) HAIR. WERE YOU DRUNK WHEN YOU PICKED IT?

Kaitlyn,

First, I have no idea who you are addressing this message to. As it says in the message, and I have said hundreds of times, I have nothing to do with picking the actors for the films. You might as well go outside and yell at a random stranger, they have the same amount of input.

Secondly, Clary has green eyes. Not blue eyes. Green eyes. And long hair (not that hair can't be cut— it's hardly a permanent fixture.) You appear to have no idea what the book character looks like, so not sure why I should pay attention to the fact that you "hate it" — her, actually. She's a person, though she has done nothing to earn such nastiness.

I know. But she'd look better with blue eyes and shorter hair. Not short just shorter.
But face it, she's too ugly...

1) She's not remotely ugly, she's a beautiful girl (named one of People's Most Beautiful 2010).

2) I gather that you want her to look like a made-up image in your head rather than a real person or anything like the character in your book, but I cannot imagine why you think she should be cast to match what you imagine, not the description given by the books and by me. You are welcome to imagine Clary as purple if you want, but if you're so married to that idea, don't see the film — it's very unlikely anyone else imagines her the same way.

I wouldn't normally be so short, but I have little tolerance for people screaming at me over things I don't control, and less for people calling obviously beautiful women ugly.

this is just trying to be funny, not rude.
@kaitlyna3: as Olive Pendargast from Easy A says, OOOOOHHHHHHHH BURN!!!!

What is wrong with you? Who are you even yelling at? Cassie isn't in charge of casting. Plus being so rude and disgusting just makes you look stupid to us other fans. Fans who know things like that Clary's eyes are green.

I think they would look better blue.

So you don't care if she looks like the character. You just want her to look like what you think is pretty in your head. Fine. But why the fuck should anyone else care?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on February 22nd, 2011 05:02 pm (UTC)
And you're both done here.
