Javier Bardem Is "Psychologically Locked In" To Star As Roland In <i>The Dark Tower</i>

No, I'm not 100% sure what that means either. But long story short, he's interested! Click for the details..

Last we heard about the planned multi platform adaptation of Stephen King's Dark Tower series was that the lead role of The Gunslinger, Roland Deshcain, was offered to Javier Bardem. Now although we haven't heard anything official from the man himself, producer Brian Glazer tells MTV that he really wants to play the part..



"'Dark Tower,' Javier Bardem, that's what we're hoping. We're in the process of trying to put that together. Will that make you happy? Will that make MTV happy?"


MTV said yes, it would! Then asked for an update. Has he signed on officially?

"He's locked in psychologically, He really wants to do it, so we're absolutely rooting for him to do it."


There were other names mentioned in connection for the part too. Christian Bale among them. But Glazer suggests there is only one man to play their Gun Slinger..

"We're really just focused on Javier right now,"


Bardem is also rumored to be in talks to join Sam Mendes' new Bond movie as the villain, so that may be why he is hesitating to commit to the Daek Tower. Which role would you rather see him take?
