When I met James lee Burke the first time I asked who he thought would be god in the role of Dave, he said Tomy Lee Jones. Seems a perfect fit to me.

And White out by Greg Rucka is amazing. If the movie is half as good as the graphic novel it will be great.

I heard a rumor several years ago that Jones would play Robicheaux in a film version of Dixie City Jam. I think this was even before the Alec Baldwin flick. Nice to hear that it's finally sort of coming true.
