I have less issues with the casting news than I have with King mentioning they're not adapting The Gunslinger first and will instead, I assume, start somewhere around book 2. Granted, The Gunslinger is the shortest of the Dark Tower books but its kind of neccessary to setup both Roland and Jake...
Also, Ryan Reynolds must be cast as Eddie. Minus the heroin addiction, Reynolds is perfect.
