    Default Dark Tower Movie speculation

    Ok.. Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I'm not sure where to put it.

    So I've been thinking about how cool it would be if there was a dark tower movie made... With the following actors.



    Viggo Mortensen as Roland Deschain



    Shia Labeouf as Eddie Dean



    Rosario Dawson as Susannah Dean/ Detta-Odetta Holmes



    Max Records as Jake Chambers

    Anything to add/dispute?

    I actually made the following fantasy cast list last night:
    Roland

    Dennis Quaid, so long as you could keep him from grinning like an idiot like he seems prone to do. Has dark hair, blue eyes, and looks especially rugged when he's sporting a 5 o'clock shadow. Plus he has the deep voice needed that other possibles like Hugh Laurie and Viggo Mortensen sort of lack.

    Eddie

    Jake Gyllenghaal. The pic is just an example of him with shaggy hair, though he'd need to wear hazel green contacts.

    Susannah

    Jada Pinkett looks the part to me and I think she could pull off a Detta pretty well.

    Jake
    I think Jake's actor doesn't need to be famous. Any young teenage boy with sandy blond hair and blue eyes could fill the role.


    I also had some ideas for some of the more minor characters.
    Walter
    I can't think of anyone who could possibly be better than Willem Dafoe. As Randall Flagg though they might want to have a different actor.

    Callahan
    James Cromwell. What can I say? They did a good job casting him in 'Salem's Lot.

    Mia

    Claire Forlani. She has the face, hair, body. I think she could pull off the "innocent" look better than someone like Angelina Jolie for instance.

    Eldred Jonas

    Sam Elliott. Nuff Said.

    Sounds like a dance for me!

    mmm... Shia Labeouf? Don't know if I'd want to see him as Eddie. I LIKE Eddie and I really think a soft-spoken, clean faced Shia would be very unconvincing as an x-drug addict. Not enough charm for my taste...

    I like you other ideas though. Do you really think they'd make this movie? I know there are many talks and big names running around this project, but I remain very skeptic.

    Just a request to Ms. Mod. Can you make a sticky Dark Tower Movie thread where all chat about that topic can go into instead of just having multiple threads on one topic?

    The title of this one is as good as any so have pinned it. I can't go back through the other threads to add them in here, though, as I've got too much else on my plate at the moment.

    Yeah, I was not thinking you'd do that, but thanks for making one thread sticky.

    Mousey makes a wonderful argument without arguing.

    Sam Elliiott as Eldred Jonas is perfect,an exact copy of the Jonas I saw in my mind's eye. I also like Jada and Rosario for Susannah.

    I don't really agree with either of the "Rolands." They have that gritty feel, but they don't seem "cool" enough. That's not quite right, but they just don't do it for me.
