    I agree, you just have to look at the tv series they did of The Stand to see that it can't be made right!!

Dennis Quaid, on the other hand, is about 50. Is Roland that old? If so, Harrison Ford would be too old. What about George Clooney? He's not a great actor, but he did an excellent job in Michael Clayton. Maybe he would be able to connect with the character of Roland equally well.

    i have never read the dark tower books but heres my choice ?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ????

    Did Javier ever officially accept the part? Which by the way think he would be an excellent choice for the part. Although the Spanish accent may be kind of funky.

    I've posted a message in the News Forum.

    I just watched No Country for Old Men this weekend and I couldn't detect any trace of his accent in that part.

    Have to agree with you there. I just recently saw the movie too and didn't notice the accent.

    I saw N.C.F.O.M too, didn't notice an accent. What I DID notice was a stone-cold killer who had an ageless quality that, with a decent haircut and the proper clothes, would make a great Gunslinger.

    While reading the books, I imagined the characters- - - - -javiar, Brolin- - -both good actors, but Viggo has proven his ability to vascilate between the very quiet desperation of his "The Road" character, and the kingly voice of Aragorn with great dramatic effect. To me, he IS Roland- - - -and Shia LeBeouff is most definitely Eddie. Susannah: Zoe Salandar, as she has immense physical prowess as the Susannah character must have. Jake- - - -somebody new with some "grit" for his age- - -can't be too much of a pretty boy. Pere Callahan would have been played very well by Richard Harris, if he were still with us. Gotta be Viggo to get the desperation and exhaustion over.
