Christian Bale & Javier Bardem Wanted For 'Dark Tower' Main Role

Reported by Outsiders - 08:45 PM 2011.01.26
The NYPost is reporting that Christian Bale is looking to be the lead that Ron Howard and Stephen King want for the "Dark Tower" main character, gunslinger Roland Deschain.

Other actors concerned for the role are Javier Bardem and Viggo Mortensen and Jennifer Carpenter is rising on the short list for the role of Susannah, as is French/Moroccan Ghita Tazi.


UPDATE:

Deadline is reporting that Javier Bardem has offered the part of the gunslinger Roland Deschain in "The Dark Tower" series.

"Bardem has officially been offered the lead role by director Ron Howard and Universal Pictures. While formal negotiations haven't yet begun, there's a high level of enthusiasm internally that they've got their cowboy."

It sounds to me as a stand off and both would be great in the role. I just have a feeling the role will go to Javier Bardem only because the next and final installment of "Dark Knight" is going into production/shooting soon. I can't see Christian Bale trying to bounce between the final "Dark Knight" movie and trying to do two movies and a mini-series of "The Dark Tower."
