The New York Times is pegging actor Christian Bale as up for the TV series based on the Dark Tower novels.
Bale would be appearing in Stephen King's Tower series as its hero, gun-hand Roland Deschain.
For those who have missed the novels, it's a kind of fantasy Western thing channelling the spirit of David Gemmell's Wolf in Shadow books, with a knightly twist.
For the record, Christian Bale would make a fine Roland. Dark is as dark does, after all.
