NEW ROLE: Michael Rooker has Been Cast in Amazon's 'The Dark Tower'
Amazon Studios along with executive producer and showrunner Glen Mazzara of The Walking Dead fame, will bring an adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower to television.
Earlier this week it was announced that Sam Strike (Leatherface, HBO's Chernobyl) would play Roland Deschains, our hero and gunslinger who later in life pursues the man in black played by Jasper Pääkkönen (BlacKkKlansman).
We can now add Michael Rooker of The Walking Dead and GotG fame to the mix in a yet unknown role in the Stephen King adaptation that has no ties to the horrible Akiva Goldsman movie. Striving to be a more faithful telling of the book, it was announced earlier that this series would focus on Roland's origin which was some what covered in the series of books.
