Casting Call.

There's no doubt the ongoing case of Canadian Forces Colonel Russell Williams is one of the odder crime stories to pop up in Canada in recent years.  Williams was commander of Canadian Forces Base Trenton, one of the most important of Canada's air bases, when he is alleged to have murdered Armed Forces Corporal Marie-France Comeau and bus company employee Jessica Lloyd, as well as raping two other women.  This week he was also charged with multiple counts of break and enter and theft, reportedly of women's underwear, including those of his victims before and after his assaults. And all this went on while he was a very busy man in his role of base commander.  Given the lurid and bizarre nature of the case there's also no doubt a made for TV movie will likely appear based on the story sooner or later.  Thinking about who might be cast in the role the obvious thought was Paul Gross.  Whether Gross would consider playing such a role is another question.  I also wouldn't be surprised if the braintrust at the Law and Order franchise take a crack at the story on one of their shows, altered to make it about a fictitious American military officer of course.

Just about tailor made for NCIS too.
