For Roland I was thinking an older Hugh Jackman would be a good fit.

Gandolphini for Balazar is perfect. Walken as Flagg is great too. ;-D


Sure a better kid actor would be great for Jake, but I couldn't really put down "some unknown kid" for the part. Kinda defeats the purpose of filling out the cast. :-D

Jackman is way to young for Roland, I agree Eastwood is a bit too old now but I couldn't think of anyone else who fit the mold. Eastwood circa Unforgiven is almost exactly what I pictured Roland as.

Henriksen was as close to current as I could think of.

Yeah, Clint Eastwood 10 years ago is the best choice of any, bar none. Too bad he's past the prime age to play Roland at this point.

I made the book 7 cover you posted my new computer background, Tavish. Sweet! ;-D

OK, I got it. For Roland, I would cast... Jerry O'Connell

And the best part, if Jerry's unavailable, Charlie will be!

I would be tempted to go with Clint Eastwood or maybe Lance Henriksen.

Jake - Haley Joel Osment
Susannah - Depends on if you want to cast one for all three roles, if so I'll go with Angela Bassett.
Eddie - Marky Mark Wahlberg
Flagg - Christopher Walken (I don't want to typecast Jamey Sheridan)

The only other one that is an automatic for me is Balazar should be James Gandolfini.


Clint Eastwood 8-o ? Yuck! :-P

I think Christopher Walken as Flagg would be great! ;-D My first thought was him for Roland, but Flagg works much better for him. Nicely done. ;-D

As to the others, I dunno. Need time to think about it. :-?

Gandolphini for Balazar is perfect. Walken as Flagg is great too. ;-D

Are you talking about Dark Towers? I've never read those, but Flagg was in The Stand. If you're talking about Dark Towers, did he reuse the same character?

Also, Stephen King is fine enough with his books, but his endings almost always blow. Maximum Overdrive, IT, The Stand, Langoliers, Sun Dog... They all had sucky endings. I prefer to read his shorter stories (<100 pages) because they are just better, imo. Night Shift rocked!

Yep, Flagg was actually Walter aka the man in black aka about a billion other names. Flagg tied into a bunch of different King books! He was also the evil magician from Eyes of the Dragon- he was awesome in that book. B-)

I love how the Dark Tower theme was so enormous that he couldn't contain it to it's own series and it spread into a ton of his other works as well.

Have you read any of the Dark Tower/ Gunslinger series Sluggers?

You should definitely lick it then. :-b

If you like Star Wars/ Lord of the Rings/ Dune... Dark Tower is superior to them all.

It's like the greatest fantasy/ sci-fi/ horror/ buddy story ever told in my opinion- and I've read a lot of books. :-°

The first book is kind of slow, but the second book will blow you away- and the hits keep coming after that. ;-D

I'll look into reading them. I'm getting sick of three books I'm reading now: "The History of the Bible," "Divided by God," & "Three Nights in August."

Yes, that's right. I'm trying to read Three Nights in August, and I just can't stand it. The guy uses 14 words where he only needs to use one. Sure, the story he's telling is interesting, but I can't get past the way he's telling it.

Yes, I'm a Cardinal fan. Shoot me.

"History of the Bible?"

"Divided by God?"

Yeah, it sounds like you need a break from all that stuffy stuff... I suggest dark tower too.
