    oh my computer is acting up again- this was my reply to JOhnD #91- seems it got intertwined with Johns original post. Might make more sense now. Sorry..........

    Thinking about that---- we all were read Disney's stories,thus knowing the endings, yet the movie versions were still something special. Think Cinderella, Snow White.
    I tend to think for those who never read the books, the movies will give similar reactions as those we experienced in reading.
    IMO, for those who did read the books, the ending will be a lesson re told- Ka is a wheel. And hopefully all will come to understand that it "is the journey not the ending" that mattered most.
    Did knowing the ending spoil your re reads? Not for me- knowing the ending gave me freedom to relax and enjoy the journey all the more. And as the ending approached, I became even more one with Roland and experienced Ka.

    I think the casting of Eddie and Jake will be huge for these movies.Eddie is the comedy and Jake is a big part for a young actor portray.Can't wait to get more news.I vote for Tim Curry for the voice of Blaine.

    Hi,

    Ah, that makes fer more sense, thankee.

    Very true, Spidey, I sit corrected, but Ill never forget the impact that the ending of DT had on me the first time I read it.

    But I'd read LotR many times before I'd seen the movies and it certainly didn't lessen my enjoyment of the movies.

    Long days and pleasant nights

    I just watched Javier on The Tonight Show, and I think he would be perfect. He has a crazy ruff face, and way about him. Not a man of to many words. But when he does speak, he has an excellent command of the English language. And, I bet he dances a great Commala!

    Actually SK's son looks exactly like him, he could play young King.

    And Javier, wtf dude? How long does it take to say yay or nay?!

    He sure does. You can't dance, you can't dance with death, or Calla folk. He also needs to be able to spin plates, ten at a time...wait...no...wrong medium all together. I was thinking of Art Linkletter.

    Attachment 11316Attachment 11315Bardem is too big for what I pictured. Timonthy Olypant (think Justified) is perfect, I think.

    I don't know, Anthony Hopkins could be a good choice here, as Hannibal he has the power to 'charm' you with his voice while at the same time being menacing, maybe swarmy is the right word I'm looking for?
