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 think she's the perfect Clary, and I'm pretty critical about these kinds of things.
Her hair is pretty, and so what if it's not naturally curly or red? (Is it? I can't really see it...)
It is called hair dye. Or wigs...And curling irons.
:) And there is such a thing as coloured contacts (in case her eyes aren't green. Again, I can't really see. I have terrible vision)
Anyway, for someone to say she's terrible and ugly, well my gosh you must be blind! She. Is. Pretty.And. Gorgeous. And. Amazing. You're just jealous of her.
Congrats on the casting and the movie, Cassandra! I can't wait to see it! (And I can't wait to reach City of Fallen Angels. I know all of the girls at my school are excited. I may or may not have forced them to read City Of Bones and so on...They all love TMI now so let's not focus on the details)
I really hope Alex Pettyfer is Jace. I don't know why, I just think he's the best for the job. He can act, and he looks like I imagined Jace would. (I know you don't have control over casting) Hey, it's a matter of opinion, people disagree with Alex Pettyfer, I disagree with their choices. Not a big deal.
