The dork in me was thinking about who should play who in the new Dark Tower movie series that's in the planning stages right now. This is by far my favorite series of books...and one I plan on reading again soon. The fan of the series are Die-Hards....I've not met one person yet that thought it was just a "meh" series. I have met a few that didn't like it so much...but whatever it. wasn't for them.
So I called up another die-hard friend and we put our heads together on what the characters looked like to us while we were reading. To me...Roland was always an older man. Unless they were talking about his younger years of course. We are stuck on a few characters and would like to hear suggestions from other people on who they think would be good for the parts. So far this is what we have.
Roland Deschain: Sam Elliot.
Eddie Dean: Jim Caveiziel
Sheemie: Michael Marisi Ornstein
