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!

Rawr :)
She wouldn't be my first choice but she seems like a sweet girl :)
As for those people who say Alex Pettyfer should be Jace, for some reason I can never take him seriously, from all the movies I have seen him in he is a bit of a fluffy actor, not sure he could take on the sexy, sarcastic but still deep and well intelligent character of Jace. Alec, Simon, and Magnus are definitely a bit more of a concern for me though! They will have to be chosen very carefully!! Thomas Dekker for Alec, hehe? :p
