    Nobody. Except someone with magic. Maybe.

    I reckon a clean Eddie Dean could work long tall and ugly into a sweat if he tried real hard, or mayhaps Jack Torrance would find something useful to swing at the big guy.

    Cort, if we're talking no weapons. Roland would have been sent West if he hadn't had his hawk as a weapon.

    Well, to be fair now. The thread question which of STEPHEN KING'S other characters could take down Roland - if we are stepping outside of that then there are many characters who could get the job done quite handily.

    Hell, outside of King universe characters and into other pieces fiction there are characters who could probably make him work up a sweat in a gunfight

    Arthur Eld, Steven Deschain, Cort's dad, (whose name slips my brain just now), maybe a young Speedy Parkins?

    The little girl (main character) from Firestarter perhaps but I don't think she would hurt Roland, as he is not evil.

    Perhaps no one can take Roland in a fight. I can see Jack Bauer and Roland having a very fine mutual respect. Can almost see them out whispering the other as Jack Bauer has the voice I picture Roland having.

    Actually now that I think about it I think Keifer Sutherland would be perfect to play the part of Roland.

    I fail to see what was rude but I take by what you said you do not like the choice. Well if that is the case, we simply disagree.

    I don't know , I mean mr Sutherland is cool and all but I just see Roland as , like if you could take the genetics of Clint Eastwood, King Arthur, Alexander the Great make a guy out of him and then put him in a smoker until he's mostly beef jerky - then cut off half his hand his big toe - if he shoots for it, you made a Roland. lol sorry I'm just a huge dark tower fan no offense to you I swear, I just couldn't see it with him, too blond, too pretty,
