    Default the DT movie thread

    Didn't see this one anywhere, maybe I missed it. If I did, cry pardon.
    Who would be the best actor(past or present) to play Roland if you could have a fantasy casting call? Who do you think out of the people we have now could fill his shoes?

    My thoughts for any actor would have to lie with Clint Eastwood, King just uses too much of his energy in Roland. Sadly, Clint is too old now.

    My vote for anyone right now has to lie with Josh Brolin. He looks very Rolandish and I have seen him in a couple of westerns. I think he would be good for the role.

    monte and i were just talking about this last night in chat.

    If we can't build a time machine and get Fistful of Dollars Clint Eastwood, then no one.

    This is Roland:

    Adam Baldwin = Eddie

    Clint = too old

    No other good ideas.

    He could drop weight. Ever seen how much weight Christian Bale lost for The Machinist?

    I like my actors to earn their money by putting their health at risk.

    Can you post a pic of Adam Baldwin - I don't know what he looks like.

    I'm another Clint voter - I don't think he has to be too young though, I picture Roland as looking in his 50's.

    When he gets a bit older I think Viggo Mortensen in his Aragorn get up, would be passable.

    This wasn't my idea, so I can't take credit for it, but some guy posted at the .net that he thought Hugh Laurie (from House) would make a good Roland. I think it was an excellent idea. He's much how I pictured him in my head.


    and for those who asked...here's a picture of Adam Baldwin, he was Jayne on Firefly.

    Hugh Laurie is exactly how Roland looks in my mind.

    House looks the part...totally! I had this discussion with Darkthoughts before....she is BANNED from this thread.
    She can't stand him because apparently he was on a pretty popular show in England and now she can't think of him in any other way.

    Someone else said this in another DT forum and I agree with him : I don't think there is any actor who could play the character Roland and give it the justice it deserves, including Clint Eastwood in his Fistful of Dollars days.

    That is very negative and cynical feev, don't you think?

    NOBODY is going to be perfect, that is impossible. So, we have to go off of looks and/or acting ability.

    I did, I know. So you don't think there is one single actor that has any chance whatsoever of playing him? That is surprising.

    Clint Eastwood would obviously make the best Roland, but it's just not possible now, considering the age. I think Thomas Jane would make a good Roland. But I don't think he has the eyes for it.

    I just looked that guy up on imdb. I'm not too familiar with him.
    He looks the part too, I think.
