Just read this:

http://www.deadline.com/2010/04/stephen-kings-dark-tower-set-for-film-trilogy-tv-series-by-beautiful-mind-trio/


Let the debate over who should play Roland... begin!


Bruce Campbell: too much camp baggage to be taken seriously.

Russell Crowe: too angry

Gerard Butler: not ... gruff enough.

Nathan Fillion: too Whedon?

any other ideas?

Sean Bean.

yes, I know, he's totally type cast, but he fits the type so nicely.

I like Clive Owen's look, and he's never done much of this type of stuff....sorry it's another foreigner playing American but I like him a lot as an actor.

This is one of the few fantasy books I have read, at least the first three (there's more, right?). I like Julie's remark, Jeffery Dean Morgan would be good, but I don't know...I never pictured the main character as stocky and ripped, more kind of a slim yet muscular....I feel like he didn't eat much.

I'm going way out on the limb and saying Willian DeFoe........... this guy can act, I can virtually see him playing most any role well and personaly I think he's add some unf to Roland. Just my thought though

Thanks, Comcast, for ruining our fun. Again.

Javier Bardem? He's not anything like I would have pictured as Roland.
