Default If you read.....

Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books, Sherrie Sheppard announced today on the View, she will be playing Lula......Catherine Heigel had already been announced to play Stephanie....

The books make me laugh outloud, I love them,and I am redaing her latest as we speak....oddly, I don't care for either of these ladies, but, I think they will paly the characters well...Ranger and Joe, I forget the guys names I like them, & I do see them in the roles. What do you think?

I love the Stephanie boosk. I always thought Sandra Bullock would be a great Stephanie not sure about Catherine Heigel. But I have alwys thought that Sherri would be great as Lula. She has the personallity for it, even though I do think she is smaller that I have pictured Lula.

I don't even remember who Sherri said would be playing the guys.

Having grown up in Trenton I absolutely love these books!
I can see Sherrie as Lula but not Katherine Heigl as Stephanie....not sure who I would pick for her. I want to say I read somewhere that they're not even filming it anywhere near Trenton.
Here's a great blog with some pictures of The Burg:

Angela, these books are such a hoot! I totally agree, Katherine is a poor choice I don't care for Sherrie, but, I sure can see her as Lula, especially the boobs and big mouth

I love her books! I cant imagine Heigle in Stephanie's role. For the black lady, there's lots of possibilities! This could be such a hoot (as her books are) with the correct casting.

Linda - is #16 out? What is the title?

I don't like the choice of Heigel to play Stephanie, but I can see Sherrie as Lula! What I want to know is who is going to play Grandma Mazur! Betty White? And who are going to play Joe and Ranger?

I haven't read them, but seems lately, there has been a lack in good comedy movies, may-be this will be a good one. Looking forward to seeing it.

Thumbs down on Catherine Heigl and I've never heard of Sherry. Can't wait to hear who's cast for the men's roles.

I've never heard of any of the actors. They look handsome enough, but not what I imagined for Ranger.

I don't think there is a man alive who can live up to what I imagine Morelli and Ranger look like in my mind!

I really wish Sandra Bullock got the role of Stephanie.........she would be so good in that! I'm willing to give Heigel a chance, but to me, she is just not italian/hungarian enough!

Not sure about the guy for Morelli but the one for Ranger pretty much fits the way I have pictured him.

And yes Betty White would be great as Grandma!

I think Estelle Getty <RIP> could have played Gramma M beautifully...
