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!

Uhh... has anyone been cast for Luke yet? I personally LOVE Gerard Butler, as a sexy Irishman or a sexy beast of a werewolf (Ahhh... get it? BEAST?) Anyway... I feel he could pull of the whole "I'm gonna tell you that I won't help you because i'm not your father, but I'll go in and help you find your mother" thing.
I also am under the impression that the girl that plays Bella's mother in "Eclipse" would make a good fit for Clary's mom. She sorta has red hair, and I feel like she looks like she could some serious butt as a shadowhunter. Just some people to take into consideration when making imaginary casts.

Re: Luke
No one else will be cast till they find Jace.
