I'm sure Javier will do well enough for me to be content with — he can be intimidating, and he looks rugged and whatnot. I am worried about his accent though; for while Roland may have troubles with pronunciation at times, I can't really imagine him having those troubles with a Spanish accent.
I would have been a bit more than content if it had been Viggo Mortensen though (hopefully he's still an option). Aside from the fact that he looks absolutely perfect for the part, in my humble opinion, he's also a fantastic actor. I can't really understand the assumptions by people that he can't be cold or threatening enough. I suppose these are assumptions by those who were big Lord Of The Rings fans or those who haven't seen enough of his previous works, because on such films as Eastern Promises and A History of Violence there were times that I feared he was going to hurt someone lol.
Hopefully if Javier gets the part he'll at least attempt to lose the accent and get a little more lean. But I'm still grasping onto what hope I can to get Viggo.
I think that is a flat out brilliant idea to offer him that role.
Does one one know how you and I can apply as an extra for the series or movie?
I haven't heard anything yet about casting for extras.
How could they skip it??? To me, that is essential Rloand..
