I have a feeling that Tom Hanks will be involved with the “Dark Tower” cast somehow but I know he won’t be playing any of the main characters. What character could Tom play? Well Tom might be able to voice Stuttering Bill, which is a talking robot in the books.
I can see Tom playing Cuthbert Allgood or Alain Johns, one of the original ka-tet members.
Tom will not be playing Roland ’cause the leading character wouldn’t work for Tom. Tom would probably get one of the other characters that’s for sure. Tom would just play a smaller role in the first “Dark Tower” film.
Remember, Tom Hanks is a big Stephen King fan. The two worked closely together when Tom starred in “The Green Mile” in 1999.
