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!

It's kind of annoying when your scrolling through comments and all you see is "HER? I Wanted (Enter actor here) to play Clary! I'm not seeing this movie!" If you were a true fan of the books, you wouldn't even think about doing not going to see the movie because of a stupid reason such as that. Lily Collins is officially Clary! I think she'll be an amazing Clary.I just hope the pick the others soon. I don't know about anyone else, but I think Adam Lambert would be a supermegaawesomefoxyhot Magnus Bane.

He is. Adam Lambert can't play him. I've just been through this so many times I've given up re-explaining it.

Adam would be quite an amazing Magnus, but that bit always gets me. You know Miyavi? He'd be good too. 7 ft tall and everything rainbow.
