Hi Mike - great question

First of all, I'm holding out for a cable TV series vs. a movie. I believe the artistic possibilities offered by cable make it a better place for my books.

There have been various starts and stops over the years in Hollywood with regards to my books. It's hard to answer to the question of what's happening because it's hard to know what is true and what is BS when it comes to Hollywood. Even when you're sitting face-to-face with agents, directors, studio executives, and producers, nobody seems to actually mean what they say. It's apparently part of the culture out there. As Lee Child once told me, "Don't believe anything anyone in Hollywood ever says to you." That being said, I remain hopeful. I think the books would make a great series.

On Dewey - I originally wrote the character with Russell Crowe in mind (LA Confidential + Gladiator). I still think he'd be great for a movie, but for a cable series I'd look for someone lesser known. I like Aaron Paul, Tom Hardy, Charlie Hunnam.

Who do you like for Dewey?
