Javier Bardem In Final Negotiations For ‘The Dark Tower’ In Today’s Casting Call » MTV Movies Blog
Javier Bardem, you have reached "The Dark Tower."
After months of casting rumors that eventually squared firmly on the "psychologically" locked Spanish actor, it now appears all but certain that Bardem will step into the role of gunslinger Roland Deschain. Deadline has the news (and we say thankya) that Bardem is close enough to completing his deal that director Ron Howard is already meeting with other actors to cast roles based on Bardem's commitment to a trilogy of films and a limited television run between each movie.
