    I dunno. I mean, I can see him physically in the role, but William H. Macy seems way too benevolent and good-natured to be Meyers. Remember, Meyers would've murdered an unarmed man in a hospital bed without a second thought if he'd gotten the go-ahead from his superiors.  I'm not sure Macy could pull off that kind of character.

    I think many people undersetimate Macy's acting ability.

      Ironically enough, the Big Show read MHI and tweeted that Kane is Agent Franks. :)

    I have no problem believing that...I've met a few of the WWE folks while on active duty (I was a photographer) and they were all really normal guys and gals. 

    I do hope if MHI does make it to a script...they keep it as close to the book as possible.

    I love the MHI series and look forward to the next book.

    Nope.  Actually hadn't really heard of it (knew the title, nothing else) until you mentioned it.

    Suffice to say, you William H. Macy might surprise you.

    There's something showing on TV now, that has him in it - grounged up, long hair, unshaven... I want to say it's called Shame.

    Yeah, Mr. Macy is a very talented individual.

    Shameless... not your expected Macy character.

    I could see Gary Senise as Meyers, he can bring the coldness necessary

    Michael Gross could do a great job too, but I think he carries so much baggage as Burt Gummer that it would distract many viewers.

    Just had a crazy idea: what about Williem Dafoe or Gary Oldman as Meyers?

    Both those guys seem a little too menacing for Meyers, who I always saw as being a bit more to the weasel side of the equation.

    He was a MHI Hunter and well respected by its "inner circle" until he quit and joined the feds.

      Okay, I'm bumping this back up because:

    http://monsterhunternation.com/2016/04/05/free-tom-stranger-interdimensional-insurance-agent-audible-exclusive-narrated-by-adam-baldwin/

    So Larry Correia has now subverted Adam Baldwin  :cool   And some of the comments got me thinking.

     My old list, I thought Baldwin to play Franks....well.....he's a bit old for that now.    I had James Caan playing Earl....now he's too old (still woulda been perfect say 10 years ago though).  DITTO again with my choice for Myers (Keith Carradine)

      So.....again:
     Earl Harbinger:  Adam Baldwin.   He can obviously play a "hick" from his role on firefly.
     Julie Harbinger:  Probably need someone younger, but someone who looks just like Jordana Brewster
     Owen:  Some big dude.....
     Franks: Same.   Probably get some type of smart wrestler......if there is such a thing....lol.
      Myers:    Mark Harmon would probably fit the bill nicely here.   
      Trip Jones and Holly I'm not sure, no one really sticks out.
      Milo:    Alan Tudyk with a red beard?    And he could be fatted up for the role ;)
      Sam:   Sam Elliot.
      Susan:  Carrie-ann Moss maybe?

      For MH:Alpha:
      Heather:  Jamie Luner.  SHe's PERFECT for the role, can play a deputy pretty well..and...hot huge boobed redhead.
