Janet Evanovich: "Katherine Heigl is the perfect Stephanie Plum."

USA TODAY puts author Janet Evanovich and actress Katherine Heigl in the same room to discuss the upcoming big screen adaptation of One For the Money, the first romantic thriller starring Stephanie Plum.
Seventeen years after the book was released, the actress will finally put a face to the lingerie saleswoman turned bounty hunter who has sparked a behemoth 80 million copies in book sales (including nine No. 1 USA TODAY best sellers) and an audience of die-hard fans. "I don't know why it took so long, but as far as I'm concerned, the search is over," says Evanovich, 68, who last week released her 18th Plum novel, Explosive Eighteen (Bantam, $28). "Every time I write Stephanie Plum, it's going to be Katherine Heigl's face there. She totally nailed it."

The film hits theaters in January. Do you plan to see it?
