Roland should be played by Jason Stratham! mmmm
Stephen Moyer of True Blood fame,he's got that weather worn look which would be perfect
Clint Eastwood y'all. He was Stephen's inspiration for Roland in the first place, when he took Stephen's breath away seeing him on the big screen. Stephen is lucky that Clint is still with us, he is getting on, but who else is rugged, weathered and a true cowboy, still kicking after John Wayne. I started a post rooting for Clint, please join me.
yeah that guy does have a sinister look about him.. chilly
If Roland were known as bald, shorter and uglier - yeah!
Seriously, Roland is a far deeper character than any (maybe the only) character Stratham has ever portrayed. The generic action movie star won't work here.
Clint Eastwood would be my first choice, since he is semi-retired on acting, or at least retired from roles such as of a gunslinger, I would pick Toby Stephens. Stephens has the right age, right looks (portrayed a younger version of Eastwood's character in Space Cowboys) and good acting skills.
Russell Crowe would be good
Christian Bale would be great...he is dark...
I would to see Clint Eastwood do a cameo as Jamie Jaffords of Calla Bryn Sturgis
Believe it or not he is old enough.He was born on the 31st May 1930.By my calculations that makes him 82 in 30 days time.A tad too old to play Roland me thinks
