Javier Bardem Offered Lead Role In THE DARK TOWER
Earlier today we reported that Christian Bale was thought to be one of the frontrunner’s for the role. Viggo Mortenson has also been a name tossed around for the part. Deschain is the last living member of a knightly order of gunslingers, and humanity’s last hope to save a civilization that will fall unless he finds the Dark Tower.
I would have loved Viggo Mortenson or Christian Bale in this role, but I am also happy with Bardem. It is important to have an actor that is able to immerse himself in this role, which Bardem will do.
