Cast the actors for the series


I don't know exactly who should play who, but I can really see Jon Hamm in this. Either as Stu or Randall Flagg.

Who are your picks for the cast?

reply

Hamm is nearly fifty; that's too old for Stu.

reply

How about John Travolta as Flagg? Or even Glen Bateman?

reply

I kinda like Travolta as Flagg.

reply

Never liked him as a bad guy. (The Punisher, Broken Arrow)

What about Face Off?

reply

What about Face Off?
Or The Taking of Pelham 123?

reply

Didn’t like him in that either. To be clear, it’s not an issue of the quality of his acting. It’s an issue of my own preferences and preconceptions.

reply

Hugo weaving as flagg would be interesting.

reply

What do you think of James Marsden?

reply

I'm ok with Marsden as Stu..He wouldn't have been my first choice but I think that might be because he's so good looking. We don't expect that from a regular joe from Texas..

I'd be ok with the rest of the cast filled mainly by more obscure actors..
Of course, for me, a lot of the tv actors today are pretty obscure if they come off of reg broadcast channels.

reply

I'm ok with Marsden...hell, I'm even ok with Whoopi as Mother Abigail.

But if it turns out that Marilyn Manson is playing Flagg, I am definitely NOT gonna be ok with that!

reply

Marsden is all right by me as well.

reply

I agree with you on Manson and would be shocked if he was cast as Flagg. I actually think Whoopi will do a great job.

reply

Can we bring Jamey Sheridan back as Randall Flagg? I don't care if he's older now. Throw that mullet and some denim on him and I would watch. I've read elsewhere, where people have suggested Dacre Montgomery from "Stranger Things" play Flagg simply because his character was an homage to RF.
