    Default Official Casting News

    I have the official go-ahead to announce that Ron Howard/Universal has offered Javier Bardem the part of Roland. I do not know if he has accepted the offer but chances are they wouldn't make this announcement if he wasn't considering it. The announcement was made through Deadline Hollywood--here's the link for the full story.

    I hope that Bardem does not agree, do not want that it interprets Roland

    Steve is happy with the offer and thinks it is "a very good choice."

    Ok, Ms. Mod.
    Javier Barden is a good actor but I do not see it as Rland.
    I hope to be mistaken and that it realizes an excellent interpretation.

    Long days and Pleasant nights.....

    Guess we'll have to wait and see. Viggo Mortensen had been in the running also but I don't know if he was offered the part and declined. A lot of people thought he would be a poor choice because they associated him with his portrayal of Aragorn from LOTR.

    I like Bardem a lot more than the other two people whose names were bandied about. He was fantastic in No Country for Old Men, and the salvation of Eat, Pray, Love. I think he's one of those guys who can become something completely different in each role, so I like this. I agree with the Mortensen issue. I was still holding out for Timothy Olyphant, who proved in Justified that he can wear a stetson and shoot a man down without blinking.

    Hi,

    Moi aussi.

    The way I see it, if Sai King is happy I'm happy, good luck to Bardem.

    Long days and pleasant nights

    Will be interesting to see if they have him wear tinted contacts or will just skip over the blue bombardier's eyes.

    That's one of the interesting things about being partly colorblind -- I don't notice things like that. What color are Bardem's eyes?
