Books & Movies

Books & Movies:

Today I will ask the following question.

"What mystery series would you like to see made into movies or t.v. series and who would you want to play the leading characters?"
I would like to see Carolyn Hart's *Death On Demand Series" and I would have Reece Witherspoon play Annie. I have not clue about who would play Max as he would have to be a blonde and I am not sure who is out there that would fit for Max in his age group.
I also would love to see Victoria Laurie's Psyhic Eye Books made into a movie and I would probably say Sandra Bullock to play Abbey Cooper. Dutch would be easy to cast as he doesn't have to be a blonde.
Tell us your favorites and I just thought this might be a fun way to have some discussion on favorite mystery series.



  1. Simon Baker? He is charming like Max....


  2. Yes Simon Baker would be a perfect sidekick to Reese Witherspoon.

  3. And in real life Simon has a sexy accent. : )

  4. If it's not too late to get in a comment...I think the Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne Mystery series by Julia Spencer-Fleming would translate well to a TV series. Neither are extraordinary superheroes types but very interesting characters. I'm not coming up with any ideas on who should play them but I like the fact that they wouldn't have to be hollywood beauties.

  5. I'd love to see Donna Andrews' Meg Lanslow books as a television series. Not sure who would play Meg, but I'd love to see Alex O'Loughlin as Michael, though he's not quite tall enough.
