I think it's a little concerning that based upon the photos from the premiere event, they're going to have a hard time shooting anything from here out with Tom Taylor playing Jake. The kid has grown like a weed since they finished shooting. He's as tall as Matthew now and catching Idris quickly. I know studios can do a lot these days, but you can't stop time. Having said that, I'm sure anything played loosey goosey with the canon at this point will be written off or justified through the getting-old-quickly, get out of jail free card of "this being a continuation rather than an interpretation". Dangerous ground IMO but holding out hope.

If they can film Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher, I'm sure they can deal with Tom Taylor's growth spurt. ;-D

Hell yes. I've been saying that for years--lol. Popular culture is absolutely stuffed with references to our gracious host's work.

Thank you, Mr. King, for just about everything that makes my nerdy little heart happy.

yeh, it just never really truly clicked until now- as i said, i'm a bit slow.
I think Lincoln would be a badass Roland in a filming of the book stories, down to the faded blue eyes and lean physique. I'd even be down with him using his normal accent--who says Roland is American? As the "last in the line of Arthur Eld" a British accent would be natural! :)
