Robert Dugoni's "The Last Agent"

Robert Dugoni is the critically acclaimed New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and #1 Amazon bestselling author of the Tracy Crosswhite police series set in Seattle, which has sold more than 6 million books worldwide. He is also the author of The Charles Jenkins espionage series, and the David Sloane legal thriller series. He is also the author of several stand-alone novels including The 7th Canon, Damage Control, and the literary novel, The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell; as well as the nonfiction exposé The Cyanide Canary, a Washington Post Best Book of the Year. Several of his novels have been optioned for movies and television series.

Here Dugoni dreamcasts an adaptation of his new novel, The Last Agent:
This may be closer to a reality as I sold the rights to The Eighth Sister and The Last Agent to Roadside Productions.

I’m optimistic that the story is perfect for this day and age with an African American lead actor. I always thought Denzel Washington would make a perfect Charles Jenkins, but more recently I’ve felt that Idris Elba would also be ideal.

I also thought of Matt Damon as I wrote the role of Matt Lemore. I’m a big fan of his acting and always have been.

For Alex Jenkins, Salma Hayek is a dead ringer.

The really fun casting would be the Russian agents. For Victor Federov, someone like Liev Schreiber would be perfect and Niklolay Valuev would be an ideal Arkady Volkov.

That would be an all-star cast.
