… I think Lucy Stone Mysteries would be a great movie series on the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel. I wonder who could be cast as Lucy?
Maybe just me, but doesn’t Gladdy look/remind anyone of Beatrice Arthur ?
Lucky for me I wrote both of these comments down! Now I’d like to know if any of you have someone in mind who could play the following parts:
Beth Kennedy from Laura Alden‘s (aka Laurie Cass) PTA Mystery Series
Meg Langslow from Donna Andrews‘ Meg Langslow Mystery Series
Mrs. Jeffries from Emily Brightwell‘s Mrs. Jeffries Mystery Series
Theodosia Browning from Laura Childs‘ Tea Shop Mystery Series
Desiree Shapiro from Selma Eichler’s Desiree Shapiro Mystery Series
Stephanie Plum from Janet Evanovich‘s Stephanie Plum Mystery Series
Kinsey Millhone from Sue Grafton‘s Kinsey Millhone Mystery Series
Gladdy Gold from Rita Lakin‘s Gladdy Gold Mystery Series
Lucy Stone from Leslie Meier’s Lucy Stone Mystery Series
Sharon McCone from Marcia Muller‘s Sharon McCone Mystery Series
Faith Fairchild from Katherine Hall Page‘s Faith Fairchild Mystery Series
Remember that actresses wear wigs all of the time, although in the case of a new mystery movie series, the blonde actress isn’t wearing a curly, red wig which so many of us had expected her to wear. One actress that always comes to my mind when I read a mystery book with a strong sleuth is Martha Plimpton. Ever since I saw her in a movie way back in 1994, I’ve thought of her as the perfect Kinsey Millhone, Joanna Brady, or Stephanie Plum. As for Gladdy Gold, I totally agree with Esmerlada. I think Bea Arthur would have made a delightful and strong Gladdy Gold.
How about you? Can you imagine who you would cast as these sleuths? If you have any ideas, please post a comment. Thank you!
