Javier Bardem Is Roland Deschain In The Dark Tower
The New York Post is reporting that Javier Bardem has officially signed on to star as Roland Deschain in the film adaption of 'The Dark Tower'...
We've been hearing a lot of rumors about who will be cast in the role of Roland Deschain, the rumors have suggested names like Christian Bale, Viggo Mortenson, and Javier Bardem.
Well now The New York Post is reporting that Bardem has now officially signed on to star as the old west gunslinger Roland Deschain
"Javier Bardem has officially signed an epic deal to star in the movie and TV adaptations of Stephen King's "Dark Tower" book series. The Oscar-winning actor will play Roland Deschain in the eagerly awaited Ron Howard and Brian Grazer adaptation of King's beloved seven-novel saga.
It's a momentous deal because each of the three movies in the series is to be followed by a TV miniseries. A well-placed source confirmed to Page Six, "Bardem has signed on to the first movie and the miniseries, but the intention is that he will star in all three movies and each of the TV series. It's an enormous deal for any actor, but Bardem was always the first choice."
The Old West-inspired fantasy epic sees Deschain on a journey to find the mythical Dark Tower, with the hope of saving civilization.
I know a lot of you already had Javier pegged for the role but now that it seems to be official what do you guys think?
