Fantasy Cast: The 87th Precinct

As with most blogs I do they start of either small, and then become grander, or I have massive plans for them and they never pay off. Recently, I toyed with the idea of starting a blog detailing every novel of the 87th Precinct, going so far as to make this.

Anyway, as part of this blog I started to think about my cast. How I would cast the series as I see it now. If they were to make it now… and this is what I have came up with.


Stephen “Steve” Louis Carella - Damian Lewis

Arthur “Artie” Brown - Roger Cross


Betram “Bert” Kling - myself (but really, Mark-Paul Gosselaar)


Cotton Hawes – Bradley Cooper

Hal Willis – Jeffery Nordling

Richard Genero – Matthew Settle


Eileen Burke – Gillian Anderson

Meyer Meyer – Stephen Tobolowsky


Tak Fujiwara – Hiroyuki Sanada

Andy Parker – Patrick Wilson


Oillie Weeks – Jeffery Tambor

Lt. Pete Byrnes – Xander Berkley


The Deaf Man – Robert Patrick

Teddy Carella – Alyssa Milano



Yeah. I’d be a brilliant Bert Kling.
