    Are you Joel Kinnaman? If not, then why are you copy-pasting that exact question onto so many sites?

    In any case, it's Javier Bardem all the way for me.

    Default Anyone think Robert Carlyle would make a great Man in Black?

    I'm watching 'Once Upon a Time' where he plays Rumpelstiltskin (or 'Mr. Gold'). He's easily the best part of the show, and he has this little 'giggle' that is just how I pictured Walter's 'titters'.



    Maybe not Randall Flagg, but I think he'd make a great Walter o'Dim. Thoughts?

    Default Having Doubts

    I'm not sure if it's "older" news or not, but I just read that Russell Crow is being considered to take on the role of Roland.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1737199.html

    I'm not a huge (or even slight fan of Russell Crow) and that fact admittedly biases my feelings...I'm in complete abhorrence to the idea. Russell Crow possesses no qualities that would translate into a believable Roland Deschain (in my opinion, anyway). The enormity of turning the Dark Tower into a movie is already so complex...I don't think Mr. Crow could carry it. I am inclined to agree with several others' suggestions of Viggo Mortensen taking the role. He has the look and the acting range that I think would be crucial for any actor taking on Roland.

    What does everyone else think?

    A younger Sam Shepard as Roland. There is about 10 seconds at the end of The Right Stuff where Sam is walking away from a test flight crash carring his parachute, one eye closed with blood, and that squinting shamble of his IS Roland in the Mohain(?) Desert, following the The Man in Black.

    I think he could play the whole thing. He has that creep you out factor going for a certainty.

    Not too sure about Russell Crow for Roland. I would like a younger Sam Sheperd but that isn't possible. Still good with Javier Bardem.

    i think michael fassbender would do a real good job. he's quite cold and something about him smiling scares me a little, as roland would.

    Hmm, Michael Fassbender would be an interesting choice, if a little younger than I imagined Roland to look. Still, can't deny I'd be interested in seeing him in such a role. Then again, I've been a fan of his stuff ever since he did tv series Hex. Still weird to think just how big his roles have been since then, really. Definitely deserves it, though.

    I liked the suggestion of Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad as Eddie. Clint Eastwood is obviously Roland, but since thats not really possible any longer, I'd have to go with Anson Mount from Hell on Wheels as Roland. His eyes are blue

    For some reason (Ka) I keep wanting to hear that Glenn Close will play Rhea of the Cos. I don't know why that seem important, or even right, but I can't shake it. As far as Roland goes, I see a lot of Hugh Laurie votes, and while I would be content with a Russell Crowe or a Viggo Mortensen, I'd like to follow the Hugh Laurie train of thinking and offer up a similar vote... Daniel Day Lewis. When I picture Roland in the Mohaine Desert, I see Daniel Day Lewis squinting at the hardpan. If only Sam Shepard wasn't so goddamn old...

    Robert Carlyle could pull off a great Walter O'Dim, and I'm not sure if anyone has posed it yet, but what about Josh Brolin as the Man In Black? Less angular than Carlyle, and beefier too, but I could see him doin a greasy knowing grin from under the hood, or roaring atop the waterfall in book1 "Would you kill all your answers so easily?". There's that internal argument over having a single actor play Man in Black/ Walter/ Martin/ John Farson, or different actors in the same robe through the series (all hypothetically speaking). The Robe, if handled deftly and made recognizably iconic by the filmaker, could allow for different actors at different stages in the series (in the same way a character's "theme" in the score can alert you to them in the scene even before they enter the shot). Jus' thinkin' out loud...

    I just watched a trailer for a Harry Dean Stanton documentary and I'll throw this into the arena... Sam Shepard as Steven Deschain.
