I Kinda preferred Zoey Deschanel...

Some of you readers may know about my HUGE addiction to the written word. My crazy need to read everything out there. I do have some favorites though and Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series is one of them. I even was lucky enough to go to a book signing a few years ago and meet the author herself! I'm currently reading book 17 and anxiously awaiting book 18 out later this month.
So imagine how excited I was to hear they were making the first book into a movie. Anyone who reads a book gets an idea of certain characters in their head. This idea gets especially ingrained when it's a series and the characters become beloved. I recently watched the trailer for the movie and I have to say I'm disappointed with the casting. Katherine Heigl as Stephanie? Seriously? Just because an actress is bankable doesn't mean they are right for a part. I don't have anything personal against Katherine. I like her well enough. I tend to see and enjoy most of her movies....especially ones with my boyfriend Gerry in it. But she is NOT Stephanie.

I will still probably see the movie because I can't help myself, but I cant guarantee that I will like it.

Have any of you read the books? What do you think of the casting? Do you think you'll see the movie?
