Very hard to do.

Most are tied up reading scripts.

If you call an actors agent and offer to send a book through the very first question you're asked is, 'Is the project funded?' if the answers no, then the books binned.

If its yes, they want to know studio, director etc...

You can't get anyone to read it without having funding and you can't get funding until you have a name !!!!
Welcome to the wonderful world of movies making...

It needs someone to pick up a book or get told about it (in others words you have to be lucky).

What a pain.

Mind you, even if it was easier, I still wouldn't know who to ask. I can't think of an actor for Taylor. (I thought of one for Walker, though.)

I've always thought Sean Pertwee might be a good Taylor.

We had a thread somewhere talking about possible cast idea's.

When I said Mark Strong, I was thinking of Walker.

If they make a movie with the Nightside set in anything else but London I will scream in frustration. Repeatedly.

Frankly I don't really know how they'd be able to cram 11 books into one movie.

I'd prefer to see a BBC series, seeing the good old beeb has a really good track record with awesome series based on books and this kind of thing.

As for the cast, well the UK has a ton of great actors. I don't know who I'd like to see as John Taylor, I think Benedict Cumberbatch could be awesome.
I think it would be a hard job to cast well for all the characters to be honest.

You know, in all this wishful casting of John, Walker, etc., we have neglected one of the most pivotal characters, without whom the stories would have come to an abrupt and screeching halt.

The Doormouse! (It's ok, I forgive you for the oversight)

How about Eddie Izzard? He was a great Reepicheep in Prince Caspian! :D

Absolutely! I also vote for Eddie Izzard for the Doormouse :D
Well if we could vote and would have a say I'd vote for him :)

HBO is who I would like see turn it into a series. they have proven they can turn books into quality programming and they would not cheapen the series with bad cgi and no name actors.

speaking as an american, I can't see them placing the series in the states. it wouldnt feel right if they did and we dont have enough history to make the fit well.
