i'm mentally working on a dark tower cast. here's what i have so far.

roland: daniel day lewis. please. how amazing. i've thought this for years. if he can't do it, i'd settle with viggo mortenson, i reckon. but i'd be sad.

eddie: joshua jackson (if he lost weight) or ben foster (if he dyed his hair)

susannah: GINA TORRES from firefly. hands down. if i see one more list online suggesting zoe saldana, i'm going to stab someone. she is too frail and girlish. susannah is definitely NEITHER of those things.

jake: would have to be an unknown. child actors are few and far between as far as talent on that scale goes.

flagg: gary oldman. i know he's a villain a lot, but dude is just so good at it. or maybe sam rockwell. after watching choke and moon, i have more respect for the guy. he's kind of childish and creepy looking. and i bet he's got a hell of a giggle.

stephen deschain: clint eastwood. with a toupee. and some mustache dye. it would be a nice homage.

young roland: considerable thought needed. will get back to you.

cuthbert: nobody but joseph gordon levitt

alain: unsure. a pudgy blonde nobody. alain doesn't talk much, so i'm not picky.

susan delgado: unsure. (see: young roland)

me: i really wanted to be lady indy this year.
me: alas...
me: it will have to wait.

bronson: i can just imagine you with a greasepaint jaw
me: no way!
bronson: or whatever that stuff is they use to give the impression of manly blue stubble

me: i plan on fucking going balls out with it.

bronson: ...
bronson: so, like, actual balls?
bronson: that does not fit with the idea of lady indy, kristin.
bronson: oooh
bronson: you should hire some dudes to dress up as nazis

me: boots, skirt, whip, gun belt with s&w hand ejector ii, whip holder on belt, hat, dirty ass shirt with one sleeve torn off, satchel.
me: OH GOD

bronson: carrying a valuable artifact to a secluded location without much skill

me: i hope i am dating someone or have a guy friend next year who will dress up as a nazi and let me abuse him all night.

bronson: hells yeah.

me: fuck. that would be my favorite night ever.
me: the only way that could be better is if 1984 harrison ford was abusing MY nazi.
me: with his penis.

bronson: hahahahahahaha
bronson: you made stuff come outta my nose
bronson: and i'm not even drinking anything

me: i hope you lol'ed. cause i did.
