Though no official lead for Ron Howard's adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Dark Tower has been announced, at least one possible candidate is in the right mindset. Whatever that means.
Javier Bardem is having one helluva week! Along with being nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for Biutiful and becoming a new dad to a bouncing baby boy (mom is Penelope Cruz), he's been named as the number one pick to portray gunslinger Roland Deschain in Ron Howard's The Dark Tower with an offer officially being made by director Howard and Universal Pictures.
It's great to see a Stephen King property getting so much attention in tinsel town! There's no doubt Ron Howard's adaptation of King's epic horror/fantasy/western series Dark Tower is on everyone's lips, and the list of potential stars is growing faster than anyone could have expected!
