Questionable Casting: 'The Dark Tower', Javier Bardem offered lead role as Roland in Stephen King adaptation

I may have mentioned this before but I am kind of a nerd. 

And in true nerd fashion I have read many many Stephen King books.

As a true fan of King I have spent dozens of hours pouring over his epic "Dark Tower" series and waited for the day when the books would be brought to life via film. 

So the thing is: A. a movie is actually happening and B. Javier Bardem has been offered the lead as Rowland. 

I mean, yay awesome Javier is talented and all but since King has freely admitted that Rowland was modeled after a 1970's Clint Eastwood, Javier just does not compute. 

My ideal casting for Rowland would have been Daniel Craig who has the right look and evidenced by his portrayal of Bond can do the cold-hearted bastard that we all learn to love very well. 

Hmm.. let's see where this goes.
