Javier Bardem Offered The Lead In Dark Tower

Yesterday we reported here that Christian Bale was rumored to be in talks for the lead in the Dark Tower, now Deadline reports that an official offer from Universal has been made to Javier Bardem to star as Roland Deschain, the last living member of an order of gunslinger’s, and he’s humanity’s last hope to save civilization that will crumble unless he finds the Dark Tower.

This doesn’t come as a surprise, we reported right here earlier this month that he was a finalist for the role.

I’m sure fans will not be pleased as the favorite among readers of the franchise have long favored Viggo Mortensen. As someone who has read the books I can say I’m among those who wanted Mortensen for the role but Bardem is a great actor and I think will do right by the fans and the character.
