I think he's been getting better offers now for bigger budget projects since Hollywood loves adapting other people's stories. If it is a mini-series, we see television actors. If it's a feature film, then we're more likely to see movie stars. I hope they make it a mini-series so they tell the whole story!
True, I think I'd rather have a tv version if it meant most of the book would be covered.

On a slightly off topic note, I think I read that Samuel l Jackson had agreed in principle to star in a movie adaptation of one of kings books, but it is still not a done deal. Anyone know of this?

^edit^ It is "cell"

I can see him playing Deke or Al Templeton.

Ιt is not that I have thought about this thorougly but here are my initial candidates:
Jake Epping: Stephen Merchant?
Al Templeton: Christopher Lloyd
Sadie Dunhill: Rebecca Romin (she is 5'11'' too :D)
Harry Dunning: Brian Posehn
Frank Dunning: Neil Flynn. I know, weird huh? :D
Mimi: Isabella Rosellini
Deke: Sam Elliot sounds great but I would go with John Hurt too.
Oswald: That's very difficult. No idea.

So we know a movie/mini-series is in the works. Who would you cast?

Jake Epping: Leonardo DiCaprio - Great actor, he would nail this role.
Al Templeton: Bryan Cranston - He can play a likeable, quirky character.
Frank Dunning: Walton Goggins (Boyd Crowder from Justified) - He plays villain roles well.
Harry Dunning: Robin Williams - May have too much of a presence, but he can be very likeable and he's a great actor.
Deke: Tommy Lee Jones - I pictured a folksy cowboy type. Jones's performance from Space Cowboys would be perfect.
Mimi: Frances McDormand - Likeable and easy to sympathize with.
Sadie Dunhill: Natalie Portman - I picture Sadie as insecure woman who finds herself. Portman can do that well.
Ellen: Lily Tomlin - I imagined someone who was a bit like a prosecutor. Tomlin definitely fits that build.

I had a hard time picking an actor for Oswald. I couldn't think of many actors in their early 20's who would fit.
When I was reading the novel, I actually pictured Chris Cooper as Al. It was a mind blower to see him cast.

I actually worked hard on this. I already put who I thought should be Oswald and he actually got cast for the other Oswald in another show so pretty proud on that pick. Sadie would be Charlize theron. Just has that look of sadie. AL temp would be close between Jeff Bridges an sean Connery but pick goes to sean. Jake was either Matt Damon or Joseph Gordon levitt. Went with levitt. Tell me what u think. Basher welcome lol
