There is a guy on Game of Thrones, Iain Glen, who I think would make an excellent Roland.
For a better look at him, go to the HBO site, then Game of Thrones, and then cast and crew.
If you've been watching this show, what do you think?
I think he brings a certain presence to a scene, what few he is in.
Eastwood would have been all to perfect. Man. Kurt Russell or Val Kilmer maybe? Both did very well with Tombstone. You know, some people may think I'm crazy but I think Johnny Depp could pull it off.
I would really like to see Josh Brolin play Roland, I didn't realize it till I saw him recently that he is what I pictured in my head when I read the books.
I just registered only to tell you how much I agree with that! While reading the book I knew that there was someone I had seen who would make a perfect Roland with his presence and charisma but I couldn't remember who and where it was. It was just in the back of my head somewhere. Now that I watch Game of Thrones again I know it was Iain Glen. Well, we have to take Russell Crowe, I fear, anyway :/
I was seeing picture of this man and start immediately to think of Roland
Daniel Day Luis = Roland. End of discussion. Moving on....
