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!

Alec, Magnus and a random question
Can someone please help me out? I was just wondering, in the ID series The Clockwork Angel, it mentions why the Lightwood's hate Will because of what he did to their little sister, is that going to be elaborated on in a future ID or even TMI book, or was it just my imagination and it's really just a trifling detail?

Also: I know you, Cassandra Clare, have no control over casting but I think that Adam Lambert should be Magnus XD. And of course, Alex Pettyfer as Jace.But the guy who plays Alec needs really pretty blue eyes. Like erm...Frodo's eyes in somne scenes of Lord of the Rings.
Anyway, love the books, can't wait for the movie!!

Re: Alec, Magnus and a random question
I completely agree, that's the same problem I have with Alex Pettyfer as Jace. I think Garrett Hedlund (from Tron) would be perfect for Jace.
