As happy as I am that Bosch will be back, I'm a little PO'd we have to wait a year. Well over seems to fit the Bosch character just as well as Robert Urich (R.I.P.) fit Spenser back in the 80s. The only other thing I remember him from is when he was Jimmy O on Sons of Anarchy. Now I need to look up his filmography to see what else he was in.

Looking forward to season 2 and if Man in the High Castle is at least half as good as Bosch, Amazon may be on to something

Have read all of them--more than once in some cases
To me Hugh Laurie looks thin even if tall--maybe influenced by the House role even if didn't watch the series and doesn't fit my image of Bosch

When I first started reading Michael Connelly, I pictured Gene Hackman, and later, for a long time, Robert Clohessy. Hugh Laurie is my most recent mental image.

BTW, you cited Richard Grieco as a supporting actor in Bosch upthread. If you meant the actor who played Raynard Waits, that was actually Jason Gedrick. They do look alike, though.

I think Titus Welliver is perfect as Bosch.

When I read the books, I envisioned someone like Fred Dryer as Harry, but he's now too old for the part. It took a few moments to visualize, but I agree that Hugh Laurie would be good, too.

I do love Titus Welliver in the role, he's done a great job capturing the essence of the character. I've seen him in a few things, but really know him as "The Man in Black" from the tv show, LOST.

I've read all the books but so sporadically stretched out over the years I get everything mixed up between Bosch and Joe Pike and others.

I think I always imagined Bosch a little less buffed out/masculine. The music, the living in his head. I think I imagined him something more like....Elvis Costello? Old suit, glasses, big but a little nerdy. Yah, IDK I think my mind has left the bldg LOL

Never. He's brilliant!

Is Eleanor (ex FBI agent...won't say more) in the series? I've read almost all of the books but have not seen the series.

I'm now reading Echo Park, in Chapter 17 of which Harry has to change into scrubs at a hospital, and the person giving them to him decides that Medium would be the proper size.
