Ron Howard wants Viggo Mortensen (maybe) for 'Dark Tower'
Image Credit: Albert L. Ortega/PR PhotosWhom does Ron Howard want to see as Roland Deschain in The Dark Tower? Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman, Jon Hamm, or Viggo Mortensen, according to the LA Times. Howard “nodded” when their names came up, and even suggested Mortensen based on his popularity on fansites.
Howard said that he “can’t stop thinking about” the upcoming mega-adaptation of Stephen King’s sprawling work. In print, Tower currently includes seven novels (with another in the works) and seven volumes of comic books; on screen, the plan is to have three movies and a two-season television series. That’s a lot of Dark Tower!
And it’s a massive, massive undertaking for whoever gets cast as the beloved Gunslinger. Who would you want to see in the role, PopWatchers?
