    I'm hoping HBO and Ron Howard get this TV show going. The fans WANT to see it! and it'd make a great show for non-readers to watch.

    Following is my personal opinion on best Actors/Actresses to play key roles in the show.
    I'm hoping someone somewhere reads this post and thinks the same way.

    Roland Deschain: Anson Mount

    Anson Mount best known for the role of Cullen Bohannan in TV show Hell on wheels.

    Eddie Dean: Aaron Paul
    Aaron Paul is best known for his role as Jesse Pinkman in the hit TV show Breaking Bad.
    Susannah Dean: Naomie Harris
    Naomie Harris is best known as the new Money Penny in the Bond films and a prolific TV show actress.

    Jake Chambers: Chandler Riggs

    Chandler Riggs is best known for the role of Carl Grimes in the TV show The Walking Dead.

    Awesome choices, agree with all of them, especially Jake Chambers.

    I set the computer up for these Billy-Bumblers.. They agree also.

    I hope this series/film whatever is going to happen, happens in my lifetime. I like your choices, not so sure that Roland should be so handsome and Eddie look so young though. But we all have them in our own mind in a very personal way. Welcome aboard!

    [​IMG] speaking of the Walking Dead, I think David Morrissey would actually make a Good Roland Deschain...

    All of those choices are great!! I really hope we can see a DT movie. I just think it could knock the viewers on their asses.

    Hi there! Good choices. I sure hope this series/movie gets made, and soon. As far as Eddie and Roland, my picks are too old to the roles justice anymore, most likely.

    I recently watched 'The Night of the Grizzly' (1966) with Clint Walker. He would have been good as Roland Deschain. He was born in 1927 (Walker, not Deschain, the same year my mother was born). My mother thought Walker was nice, but I can't remember her saying that in front of my father. That Grizzly wouldn't go down even though Walker kept shooting it with the rifle( I can't remember the name of the rifle, maybe it was a 'Remington'.) Mark.

    So the over-opinionated forum-n00b bass player arrives at this thread, reads the OP aaaaand...totally agrees with those choices! :D

    Except I dont think Chandler Riggs can pass for a 12-year-old anymore :(

    I would not watch it cause I am afraid the film version would stick in my head. Do not watch tv or movies anyway. I really picture Roland as a young Clint Eastwood.
