i like Lance and Angela in this grouping.
Caveziel doesn't work for me.
i don't even know who your Eddie and Jake are.
can't tell who your Flagg is from that pic either.

here's mine of that particular grouping of characters:

Roland



and i think Storke did a wonderful job as Larry Underwood and afterall, Larry and Eddie...same character if you ask me so i say Adam Stork for Eddie!! Big Grin



i like angela...that would work well for me




i don't even know any kid actors anymore

Flagg is the guy who played Killer Bob from Twin Peaks.... kind of a tongue in cheeck choice.

Roland is a hard one. I like LC cuz of the depictions of Bernie Wrighston and the "blue bombadier eyes" thing. Who is your Roland?

I'd actually thought of Adam Storke as well, but I truly wasn't all that thrilled with his Larry...but that might not be his fault. My Eddie is Tom Cavanaugh from Ed and Love Monkey.

Jake is Rry Culkin, the kid from "Signs".

There's only one man who can play Roland, and that's Kurt Russell.

Gina Torres as Suzanna, maybe Bale as Eddie.

i agree, Bale could play Eddie too. Russell might not be bad as Roland.

he's got the eyes after all! Wink

Yeah, Lance is definitely a good choice for Father Callahan.

I started reading the DT books in the '80s, and I've always pictured Kurt Russell as Roland. He's got the eyes, the mannerisms, the physique....And even as he's aged, he's still Roland to me, possibly even more so.

Likewise, after I saw Firefly, Gina Torres became Suze for me.

Nah, I don't like Kurt Russel for Roland...too square.

I quite like Guns' choice for Roland though...give that guy 10/15 years and a bit of weathering and he could do it, whoever he is.

Bishop good for Callahan and the woman for Susannah. Not too keen on the rest. Very Happy

Nope, sorry, just doesn't do it for me. The eye's aren't bad, but I could never take that chin seriously.

And considering he hasn't had more than 10 lines of dialogue in the last 10 movies he's been in and Roland has a lot...

Never saw either of those. My thing was I've never seen him actually act. Very Happy Don't think he can pull off the emotional complexity of Roland's character. Maybe I just haven't seen enough movies with him in. *shrug* And he's still too square...Roland was lean.

Check out Dreamer, Miracle, and Dark Blue. There's a Hell of a lot more than 10 lines of dialog, and he's fantastic in all of them.

Heh, I thought you meant 'square' as in 'L7'.
