But I really hope it’s true!
And if not…
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: Look, no actor or actress is going to look perfect or right to absolutely everyone for the part. Keep in mind *I* don’t choose the actors or actresses who star in the movie — I have to trust the vision of the producers and director, and I do. I hope you can be optimistic too, but if not, super-nasty comments about Lily are going to be deleted.
