Brad Smith's "Rough Justice"

Brad Smith was born and raised in southern Ontario. He has worked as a farmer, signalman, insulator, truck driver, bartender, schoolteacher, maintenance mechanic, roofer, and carpenter. His novels include Shoot the Dog and other Virgil Cain mysteries, All Hat, which was made into a major feature film, and One-Eyed Jacks, which was shortlisted for the Dashiell Hammett Award.

Here Smith tags a few actors he'd like to see in an adaptation of his new novel, Rough Justice:
I am of the opinion that Christopher Walken, Steve Buscemi and Amy Sedaris should be in every movie, so I would cast them first and then just build the rest of the film around them.

If we’re reaching into the past, I would have to include Strother Martin, Peter Lorre, Sidney Greenstreet and W. C. Fields. What the hell—throw in the great Stan Laurel too.
