    I think Drew Barrymore ought to have a roll here... because it seems she's not gonna Play ALLY in
    the gunslinger movie,... Gan knows ... there might not even BE an Ally in the movie, ...

    If King makes another Sequel to any of his older books, I hope its Firestarter and I hope the bad robot guys have
    NOTHING to do with it. ...Or that richie cunningham

    Dan is in his forties, right? I'm thinking Vince Vaughn. Dan can't be too handsome, after all, he is a recovering drunk, and has had a hard life.
    Vaughn can play good guy, and tortured soul quite well.
    Leto...nah, too young, and too good looking.
    Abra? Hmmm....Chloe Grace, but she's too old. Ditto for the Fanning girls. I'm not too familiar with current young stars.

    How about this guy?

    Yes, he was the lead in Psych. But he can do drama, too.

    Yeah, he could pull it off. But can he look really rough, like Dan has to be in the first few chapters of the book..and the very end?

    Wil Horneff maybe?
    Hey if he could play a future Danny in the mini series, certainly he could pull it off twice?

    Or maybe this guy from The Drinkee. He obviously has a wide range:

    Cusack actually expressed interest in playing Danny when Doctor sleep was released.

    He's a little too old, don't you think? Danny's younger than I am...he was born in 69, 70, as he's four in the books, isn't he?

    When I read Doctor Sleep, I kept thinking of Timothy Hutton. He's too old to play the part now, but I think a younger version of him would be a perfect Danny.
