: I am a huge fan of the books. I have read them all and I am really excited about the film. I loved Chevy as Fletch and found that he really nailed the part, but the script for Fletch was weak. They made it more comedy even though the book was funny enough. I definately hated the ending. It ruined the chance for sequels.
: I hope you do end up using Chase for voice overs, that would be real cool. If not thats ok too.
: I am really scared you are going to cast Jason Lee or Ben Affleck for the role. This frightens me dearly. I know both are your friends but I can't see either in the role. I mention this to other fans and they groan too. We have the perfect writer, we need the perfect actor. Chase was it before, but he is too old now. I like both Lee and Affleck, but neither seem to be Fletch for me. The humor has to be dry and charming.
: I also know you want to work with David Duchovny. He would make a perfect Fletch. I hope you seriously consider him for the part. It would be an ideal casting job. I have mentioned this to others and they mostly agree. Plus he has bigger star power than Jason Lee.
: I hope you consider it. I also hope this message gets to you as I know you are busy.
