Since word hit that Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' was being adapted, everyone has been wondering who will play Roland Deschain. Though the likes of Viggo Mortensen and Christian Bale have entered and left the mix, one actor's name has remained throughout -- Javier Bardem. With Mortensen out (and presumably occupied with 'Snow White and the Huntsman') and Bale busy with 'The 13 Women of Nanjing' and the next Batman, there's one gruff-and-tough man left.

Though whittling down the rumored choices doesn't exactly lend clarity to the possibility of his casting, this does: Producer Brian Grazer confirms that they want Bardem for the role and are currently doing what they can to make that happen.
