According to several sources, Universal and Ron Howard have decided who sits atop their wishlist to star as Roland in “The Dark Tower” movie series. No, it’s not my favorite choice of Viggo Mortensen, but I can definitely get behind this choice. In fact…yes, I think it’s a fantastic pick.
Yes, notoriously unattractive man Javier Bardem is now leading the charge to play the time traveling gunslinger on what will be a landmark entertainment event. Not only will there be movies, there will be a TV series featuring the same cast. Whomever decides to do this is pretty much giving up years upon years to really focus only on this project. I always felt that a more unknown actor would only be willing to accept such a role, but it sounds like Bardem may actually say yes.
Do you think he and Penelope Cruz have their Academy Awards beside each other? That would be so cool. Also, will their offspring be the most beautiful human beings to ever grace this Earth? The DNA combo alone gives them about a 1.4 million percent better chance alone.
