    This is great! I don't know how I feel about the whole movie/TV thing they have planned, but at least they've got something going. I'm very much looking forward to seeing who they're casting for The Three and Roland.

    I believe Javier Bardem was named as the lead for the movie.

    Ah, great. He wasn't my pet cat for the role (that would've been Dr. Gregory House), but Bardem was an inspired choice (if he can make people forget about Anton Chigurh, anyway).

    Anybody who watches many movies knows that Bardem is a ****** actor, and Chigurh was not close to his best performance. Watch Biutiful if you can handle foreign language film.

    I think it was just because Chigurh was so damned creepy...

    Thanks for the recommend on Biutiful. Just saved it to my queue.

    Yup. If Howard can get Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play Eddie Dean and Cuthbert, I'd be even happier.

    Ive been reading the series, I'm reading through Wolves of Calla now.

    It's a weird series, interesting but at times very boring. Seems like theres one good event/fight per book, and a lot of talking inbetween.

    I've never read any of the books. I don't like westerns.

    The Dark Tower is a western like Firefly was a western. Except less so.
