We see none other than Viggo playing Roland of Gilead and Kit Harington, as Eddie Dean. We sincerely hope that the casting director will run these men thru their heads. We would love to see both men in these beloved roles.

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

Chester might be getting emails because he checked the box that enables that function in the Watch Thread tool.

chester brooks As Out of Order suggested, you might check your settings in your Watched Thread area (top of the page) or check your Profile settings in the Contact Details section as you may have the box checked to receive email notifications when a new conversation message is posted. If so, uncheck that and be sure to save your settings before leaving the page.

I think Viggo Mortensen would be a good Roland ... (IF someone could actually do a decent job at these movies which is still on my doubtful list).

I've also always thought Christopher Walken would make a good Flagg :)

VI don't know if anyone has posted it, but I would love to see Jared Leto play Eddie Dean. I'm thinking more of his lord or war apperance. Just switch out cocane for heroin.

At 43, Leto's just too old for Eddie. He's a very good actor, and I'd like to see him in some role some day, but not as Eddie. Eddie starts off in his mid-twenties so no actor older than a young-looking early 30's should be chosen.

Eddie Dean == tony oller

Susannah Dean== danai gurira

YES, thank you! Anson Mount is and always will be my first pick for Roland. I'd like Aaron Paul to have a chance at Eddie, but Tony Oller is a great choice too.

I also NEED William Dafoe as the Man in Black... I need it like my life depends on it lol:

From the replies here, it seems people either haven't read the books in a while or have no idea what the characters are supposed to look like.

That's a pretty pretentious opinion. Writing and other creative outlets are extremely subjective. Every individual interprets art differently, what one reader envisions from a book a different reader might envision an entirely different way. Same with music, what one person might consider a masterpiece another person might consider garbage. I think threads like this are wonderful, it's a great thing to be able to see all the varying ways people see these characters. I know King himself has quoted that he enjoys leaving things up to the reader allowing them to envision the world of his creation in their own way. If you really wanted to stick right and true to what the characters are "supposed" to look like, you'd have Stephen King himself posting this thread and acting as casting director. A movie is an artistic interpretation of a movie, therefore people choose to post people they personally think are fitting fit for the characters as they see them in their head.
