The Dark TowerAccording to The New York Post, in addition to names like Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman, Jon Hamm, and Viggo Mortensen, you can also add Javier Bardem to the list of folks being looked at to play the tale’s lead character, Roland Deschain.

Who’s gonna nab the top line? Expect to find out soon!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Masked Slasher

    I’m hoping for either Viggo or Hugh Jackman.

  • Mr. Dark

    Oh dear GOD no. Couldn’t be more wrong. King based Roland on Eastwood. Those other cats have a -little- Eastwood in them. Mortensen is pretty much ideal when it comes to age, body type, and acting range. (Jackman doesn’t have the acting chops, Hamm isn’t the right type.) Bardem? Wrong, well, everything.
