I always thought Will Farrell would be a good choice for the Fletch role.

Don't get me wrong Braff's a funny, talented bloke but Fletch he aint. His more neurotic aproach to comedy applied to the sly-old-street-smart-dog character of Fletch would have been all wrong. Now let's hope they hire Jason Lee like Kev Smith was going to do when he tried to get a Fletch project off the ground a few years back. JASON LEE FOR FLETCH!

Ryan Reynolds would make a good Fletch.

Yeah, A few years ago Jason Lee didnt have the profile for a studio to risk him carrying a fletch movie, but now with the success of My Name Is Earl they should really consider him for the role.

Ryan Reynolds is a good idea. With the right material, he is a very funny man. Pity he whores himself to rather rubbish films.

Jason Lee is also a good idea but with a full time series it might be hard for him to find the time.

is kind of a good choice but his comic persona, in my opinion, is a touch too similar to earlier Chevy Chase's. Obviously not a bad thing in and of itself but I'd personally prefer Jason Lee partially due to the fact he's that bit older. I've got a funny feelin that the Lee/Reynolds split has a lot to do with age, the youngsters favouring Reynolds. Nowt wrong with that of course.
I can't beleive that the casting of Fletch has prompted me to post TWICE.
I am a sad little man.

This project is doomed. First of all, the studio dicks won't allow Kevin Smith to cast Jason Lee (who was perfect) and now this. I was coming round to idea of Zach Braff, however, I won't be jumping on the Ryan Reynolds bandwagon. He's a good comedy actor but just can't see him as Fletch.

Whoever they cast as Fletch it doesn't matter, I will only ever be able to picture Chevy Chase as Fletch. Chances are it will probably be a turd of a movie anyhoo, these things usually are.

Hollywood, please take note. STOP REMAKING STUFF!! PLEASE! Fletch was never a Beverly Hills Cop, or a Caddyshack but it is still a classic example of the time, a nice slice of retro cheese, if you will. Chevy Chase was THE perfect Fletch and the role was his - no-one could do it better as it was a case of Chevy Chase played Fletch playing Chevy Chase...awesome!

Is there such a lack of orignality that history must repeat itself? Move on, please...

Jason Lee or Ryan Reynolds would be great. 2 very great actors who are both channeling some fletch.
