One of my favorite easy read novels growing up was the Fletch series of mysteries. They’re a lot of fun and funny. So, I’m keenly interested in what Jon Hamm’s take on the character will be.
Apparently, he’s working on a new Fletch movie, “Confess, Fletch.” There are a lot of really great novels in the series. My personal favorite is “Fletch And The Man Who.” But all the novels are great because they’re so short you can finish them virtually in one setting and they’ve got a very wry sense of humor to them.
Of all the actors out there, I think Hamm is one of the better suited. But I think in an ideal world, a Fletch movie would be done by someone like Greta Gerwig. The movies have been a little too broad in their humor for my tastes and don’t really reflect the tone of the novels.
Anyway. I’m looking forward to it.
