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.
I think Christopher Walken as Flagg would be great!
My first thought was him for Roland, but Flagg works much better for him. Nicely done.
As to the others, I dunno. Need time to think about it.
Yeah, and Hailey Joel Osmont? I'd rather have an unknown kid who can actually act than him I think
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.
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!
