Javier Bardem Nearly Locked as Roland in The Dark Tower

It’s been a little bit of a roller coaster to lock down who would play Roland in The Dark Tower movies and TV series with multiple actors being rumored for the role of the Gunslinger. Now, Deadline is reporting that Javier Bardem is very close to finalizing his deal to play Roland in all three Dark Tower movies as well as the two seasons of the television show that’ll bridge the trilogy installments. They apparently begin filming the first movie in September.
