Robert Dugoni's "Murder One"

Robert Dugoni practiced as a civil litigator in San Francisco and Seattle for seventeen years. In 1999 he left the full-time practice of law to write, and is a two-time winner of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford University with a degree in journalism and worked as a reporter for the Los Angeles Times before obtaining his doctorate of jurisprudence from the University of California at Los Angeles School of Law.

Here he shares some ideas about casting the lead in an adaptation of his new novel, Murder One:
I’ve had readers suggest Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Junior. Damon and Downey seem more the type. I never thought Downey until I saw him in the Sherlock Holmes movie and he carried it off so well. I can’t honestly say who would fit the role well. I’d almost like to see an unknown or little known actor get a shot. Since Murder One is the fourth in the series, it would have to be an actor with some staying power.
