    I'm happy with Bardem (now) if we actually get him. If not we could go for Jeffrey Dean Morgan aka The Comedian from The Watchmen. They even look similar he's like a poor man's Bardem. Just kidding he's a great actor I've seen him in lots of films

    I like Bardem, but I also like the idea of Jon Hamm.

    James Caviezel would be interesting as Roland. He almost has a Clint-like quality.

    i dont understand why anytime i suggest stephen moyer as roland to my friends they shoot me down. he's dark haired,haggard and gaunt looking but at the same time youthful,slim build, and he's a fine british actor,with quiet,brooding acting sensibilities. ironicaly enough, i think his performance in true blood isnt a good example of how good an actor he is. sometimes the 'vamp' acting can be a bit cheesy maybe.
    oh, and arron paul(from breaking bad) as eddie, also a fine actor. i can really see both of 'em in those roles.
    and michael massee as the man in black,
    and daniel day lewis as oy, He's that good an actor!!!:-) jus kidding!!!

    Man, you guys have sold me on James Caviezel! He'd make a Christing good Roland (heh heh)...he looks about the way I picture ol' boy in my head whilst reading.

    ! And he'd win an Oscar! I still like Bardem. I know he has a different look than Roland as described in the books, but I think it is the acting along with what the audience perceives as the appropriate look that wins the day in movies. It is all about suspension of disbelief.

    They have always had to do that for a lot of actors. For Alan Ladd they would dig a trench for the other actors to stand or walk in when they were in a shot or scene with him. I was watching an Oscars pre-show years back. The interviewer was talking to Tim Robbins and saw Clint Eastwood nearby and asked him to join them. Tim Robbins quick had to get up on a box when Eastwood came over! I do not mean to make fun, it is just that movie success depends largely on audience perception of what is acceptable.
