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'm almost afraid though that Lilly is a little bit TOO pretty to play Clary. If she had a subtle, not so obvious beauty to her, then that would be fine - but then again who they choose to play her is not in my control. I just hope they can ugly her up a bit ;) her acting is great though from what I've seen.

[and this is extremely random... but everytime I see the cover models for Clary on the MI books, I cant help but feel the model looks like shes 40.. anyone else feel this way? :P ]
