I've always found it interesting to see who people want to play as in films, I just have to block them out of my mind later to not ruin my view of the character's in my mind.

My first would be (like a lot of people) Javier Bardem as Roland, even if Roland isn't Mexican, to me he just fits.

Colin Farrell as Eddie, he just, I don't even know, looks the part, if you can make this guy look like a junky stoner, that is.

As Susannah, Whoopi Goldberg Sanaa Lathan. Sanaa is beautiful and (I don't know if this is racist, cry your pardon if it is) has that black dialect accent.

As Jake, you know what? Maybe Chandler Riggs. He's a bit old for the role, but they might change the age like they did in Under the Dome, so it might be good.

Father Callahan: God, that's a hard one. I can't even figure that out. As for the rest, I dont even know, this is my first dream cast list.


So let us see yours!

Father Callahan is John Lithgow. I just saw some pics of Clint Eastwood's son and think he would be perfect for Roland and then Clint could play his father. Funny, Elijah, you mention Whoopie as Detta- when I read The Drawing Of The Three that is exactly who I pictured! I see Eddie as Tom Hardy now.

Now I see a younger Angela Bassett as Detta.

I like! Like Sanaa Lathan as Susannah!

John Lithgow, I think your right. I never saw Father Callahan as he was in the 'Salem's Lot miniseries. But I think theyd have to make him look worn out, for if you havent noticed, Father Callahan is a very worn out man xD killing all those vampires and becoming a homeless drunk for a while.

I would love to see Billy Burke as Roland.
If you watch Revolution you might find a badass character just like Roland. In my head, while reading DT, I just imagine Roland like him.

Vanessa Williams (but a little bit younger) as Odetta

Jay Baruchel as Eddie

I thought about Chandler Riggs as Jake too, lol.
But again, Billy Burke is my favourite performer to Roland. I mean, everytime I see him, I can only think of Roland.

That's what make-up artists are for. Or, maybe we should get to see exactly what Lithgow looks without make-up? I just know GNTLGNT is going to post a pic of Lithgow from The World According To Garp......

Very good choices!
I have said many times that I think Anson Mount could be Roland.....
....except for the time I suggested Dwight Yoakam, as a joke.....and kinda just to watch Bev Vincent's head spin
Bardem, while very fine actor, just doesn't have the right look. That pic is more the lean, weathered look I imagine while reading.

Okay, first I have to say that I really don't want the Dark Tower to be made into a movie/mini series/anything. I love it so much and the people look, in my head, not the way they look in anyone else's, I'm sure. I want them to stay that way (then don't watch the movie if they make it, right? I probably will, and then be sorely disappointed). That being said...this is a nice start to casting right here...
