June 3rd is the premier of Longmire on A and E. Fans of Walt Longmire might want to tune in. Robert Taylor is playing Walt's role (he really has Walt's look down.) or at least in my head and Lou Diamond Phillips is playing Henry Standing Bear. ( I love Lou, but can't see him in this part, he isn't tall enough.) But I guess if Tom Cruise can play Reacher, what does height have to do with anything.  Vic is played by Katee Sackhoff. I can't wait!!

Hmmm...good to know, but will have to think about it!!  I love Craig Johnson's books (at least the ones I've been able to get ahold of!).  If I really like a book, I rarely will watch it on TV or go to the movie.  I guess I have all the characters, etc. so visualized in my mind and they always mess it up...IMP!!!!  The only exception I can think of to that was the Colin Dexter Morse series...thought that one was close to being right on!

Oh crahhp, I don't know if we still get A&E on my tier w/cable. I haven't watch A&E in such a long time that they may have moved it up to the next level. I'll be very disappointed - I'll have to surf the schedule.

I like Lou Diamond Phillips a lot - and I'm only familiar with Katy Sackoff from her appearance in one episode of "Big Bang Theory".

Thanks for the update, Keri.
