Not sure how they will split up the books, will they have The Dark Tower as the first movie or The Gunslinger?

My Top Picks:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt - Eddie Dean

K.D. Aubert Marion Cotillard - Susannah Dean

Michael Pitt - Mordred Deschain

Ralph Fiennes – The Crimson King

Gary Oldman – Randall Flagg

Bill Nighy – John Farson

Mads Mikkelsen -Arthur Eld

Dakota Goyo - Jake Chambers

Interesting casting choices, Neo. I wouldn't pick Cotillard as Susannah.... she's a great actress, but she still speaks English with a fairly thick accent, and you need someone from the American South (or who could pass as such). Not to mention, she needs to be African-American! ;)

Thanks had no idea will fix. Took me awhile to pick them. Went on TDT wiki page to look at their pictures, if they were good/bad and their description and tried to find the best match. Also took into account's actors franchises.

I think there`s a confusion about Susannah Dean (Odetta) and Susan Delgado (Roland`s love interest witch). First is African American which is very important for the story and would cause riots if race-bended.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously, though, this is true. You might as well make an entirely different character if you were going to do that, since Susannah/Odetta's entire experience(s) are based around racial hatred in the deep South.
