Here Dugoni dreamcasts an adaptation of his new Tracy Crosswhite novel, A Cold Trail:
I had this discussion with friends some years ago. There are a number of different directions that could be taken with respect to actors.

For Tracy Crosswhite, Charlize Theron comes to mind because of her similar physicality, and she’s played tough as nails characters. People have mentioned others like Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson, Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett. Me, I’d be happy with any of that stellar group.

For Dan O’Leary people have suggested Bradley Cooper, Peter Stormare and William Hurt. He’d have to be someone in good shape, with a sharp whit and likeable.

Del and Faz, the two Italian stallions. This is a tough one. You’d need two big, Italian looking guys, but many of the better known actors from the mafia movies of the 1980s would now be too old. This would require some thought.

Kinsington Rowe – Someone like Josh Duhamel or Matt Damon, even Matthew McConaughey - Actors who physically could play a guy who played football in college and is now in his 40s.
