Angie Harmon to play Jane Rizzoli

Over the weekend, while I was teaching a writing workshop in Cape Cod, I got word of the exciting news.

Actress Angie Harmon (Law and Order) has signed on to play the part of Jane Rizzoli in TNT’s pilot TV episode of “Rizzoli,” based on my Jane and Maura books. No word yet on who will be cast for Maura Isles and Gabriel Dean.

Here’s hoping the pilot episode passes muster, and TNT picks up “Rizzoli” for a regular series!

    Angie Harmon isn’t how I pictured Jane in my mind, but she’s a fine actress and will do her best to make a sale of the series.

    I wouldn’t mind another Law & Order alum, Jill Hennessy, cast as Maura Isles.

    OMG OMG OMG OMG Please please please TNT pick this up, I know this is going to be a great series, though I didnt picture angie harmon as Jane, because Angie is very beautiful with soft features and jane is well she is beautiful too but in a different way with strong features. Im not sure who I would have wanted to play her but Im sure Angie will do a great job, she is a very talented actress and she can pull it off. I am sooo exited!! you all have no Idea how big a fan I am of these books. I cant wait for the next one!

    I would like to see Sandra Bullock as Jane and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Maura.
    Am I asking too much?
