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 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.
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. Leprechaun
