I just read that for the movie adaption of the books it looks like Javier Bardem is going to score the role of Roland. What is your take on this? I personally am a wee bit disappointed by the casting. I really would have rather seen an unknown or much lesser known actor in this role. Plus it just irks me a bit when movie adaptions use actors that are far off of the description of the character in the book. I am still excited for the movie and can't wait to see the first trailer for it.

As long as they dont use the guy who played The Man in Black in the Stand...terrible.

He doesn't really fit with my brain's image of Roland, but he may be ok...they'll have to do something about that hair :)

Completely agree! I loved pretty much everyone else but when it came to him, I found him to be laughable.
