More casting news was close to follow as other pivotal roles were filled. Odessa Young would be cast as Frannie Goldsmith and Greg Kinnear would play the educated widower Glen Bateman. In August, we learned that Henry Zaga was cast to play the deaf and mute Nick Andros.
As September rolled around the two most talked about roles had yet to be cast. On September 11th, it was announced that Whoopi Goldberg would step into the role of Mother Abagail and Alexander Skarsgård would play Randall Flagg, a much loved baddie in the Stephen King universe.
