    Dennis Quaid. Google his name under google images. He's the right age and build, and if you've ever sen the movei Wyatt Earp, he can play a cowboy type.

    This picture from the Waste Lands has always been the Roland I picture in my head:

    And this is Dennis Quaid:

    I HATE the pictures of Roland in the Wastelands. He looks like David frickin' Hasselhoff.

    I can't see Dennis Quid as Roland, sorry. I think there's a similar thread for this somewhere. My vote goes to Viggo Mortensen, number one. I'd prefer Clint Eastwood, of course, but he's too old now. Maybe Clint as Cort, calling them maggots?

    OY, with the Viggo Mortensen! He's a dang fine actor, sure...but he just AIN'T Roland to me...don't know why...I think it's the butt-chin.

    How 'bout this:

    Roland--younger Clint Eastwood
    Eddie--James Dean
    Suze--Billy Holiday
    Jake--gosh, you know, I really dont give a damn who plays Jake
    Walter--Richard Widmark
    Jonas--Lee Marvin
    Cort--John Wayne (with a shaven head...wouldn't that be a riot?)
    Balazarr--Edward G Robinson
    Steve Deschain--Humphrey Bogart

    you see where I'm going with this? Have the whole thing directed by Sergio Leonne, or John Huston, with a Morricone soundtrack and were in buisness.

    Just watched a movie I never heard of before on Netflix a few weeks ago called Centurion and kept thinking throughout the film that the lead actor (Michael Fassbender) would make a good Roland. It was actually a pretty good movie too.
