    Who would you choose?
    (Alive or dead, matters not.)

    Here who is I pictured throughout the three books....

    Juliet Landau as Holly Gibney:


    Michael B. Jordan as Jerome Robinson:


    Kodi Smit-McPhee as Brady Hartsfield:


    And last but certainly not least, if only his physical form was still with us ~ Lee J. Cobb as 'Det. Ret.' Bill Hodges:

    I'm convinced that Steve had this character/role in mind when he wrote Hodges, rather subconsciously or otherwise....the two are so much alike.

    Either way, looking very forward to it all - DON'T drop the ball, Hollywood!

    Kodi seems too young for me as Brady. IMHO

    (i suddenly remember that Yelchin would play as Brady in upcoming TV series of Mr. Mercedes, and it makes me sad :'( )

    You want a Bill Hodges movie?

    Well, there's already a movie similar with the whole private eye with black kid sidekick.

    It's called Walk Among the Tombstones with Liam Neeson. Neeson even has a young black kid sidekick helping him with a case

    If you have watched the HBO series The Night Of you will see that Bill Camp is the perfect actor to play Bill Hodges. I listened to the trilogy on Audible and could not get him out of my mind.
