    I watched the tv series of this years ago in the UK.
    I just can't imagine it as a movie, much less with Katie Holmes in the role previously filled by Joanne Whalley-Kilmer. That does not sit well with me.

    Michael Gambon (the new Dumbledore) played the lead role, but I do think Downey Jr could do a good job with the character.

    I'm not sold on the idea of turning this onto a movie.

    Hmm...this one sounds interesting. It looks like it has a good cast, and story sounds intriguing. I'll probably go see it.
