I think Sandra Bullock would be perfect to play Kinsey in the "Movie Version" (should there ever be one.

I think she is too feminine for the character. Kinsey seems a bit more plain and tomboyish. If they made a movie version back in the 80s
Lindsey Crouse comes to mind. But even then, she was in her 40s.

I think Sandra Bullock would be an awesome Kinsey. She is able to glam it up or down whatever the part calls for.

I always thought Jamie Lee Curtis would be perfect when she was in her thirties.

Sue Grafton said that there will never be a movie for this series.
She said no ghost writers and Kinsey 'dies' with her.

I have always thought it a shame that Grafton would not allow her books to be made into movies, but it's her choice. In days past, I envisioned delectable Paul Newman as Henry and Eva Gabor as Rosie doling out the Hungarian specialties.

When they make a movie out of good books they usually change it so is very loosely made about the original book. I would hate to see her books cut up. Reading is more enjoyable because you get to use your imagination. Glad she won't allow it. Can't wait for the next one.

I never thought about Kinsey in a movie version. Sandra Bullock would fit closely with the description of Kinsey that I have in my head. But, the Sandra of a lot younger years. You're right about Henry's and Rosa's characters being played by Paul N and Eva G. But, again, well... they're dead.
Actually, with the right hair and make up, Miley Cyrus could be Kinsey.

Only if Miley gets 'her act' together. Does anyone have an exact date on the X book?

I don't blame Grafton. Most writers don't have much control over what ends up on the screen, and it doesn't usually bear much resemblance to their books. Jo Rowling being a huge exception.

Sandra Bullock - fine, great! Miley Cyrus, NO! NO! NO! Hopefully not in MY lifetime! She is as much like Kinsey as I am and I'm over 60 - well over. I truly hope she doesn't allow movies to be made out of her books. The reason I like books so much is that I can picture these people as I choose and it makes for a more fun story for me.
