First Look At Matthew McConaughey In The Dark Tower

SHARE:

When it came to Matthew McConaughey’s next role, the actor was faced with an odd choice between two Stephen King adaptions with was technically the same role. For you see Randall Flagg, the big bad of The Stand, and The Dark Tower’s The Man in Black (or Walter O’Dim to fans) are the same person, a malevolent being who tiptoes through the odd shared universe of Stephen King novels. With The Stand shelved for the time being, McConaughey took the antagonist role, opposite Idris Elba’s heroic Roland Deschain, whose plan to topple the titular tower, thus collapsing the entire multiverse of different realities, takes him from his home in Mid-World to our reality and right to the door step of Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), whose ability to ‘shine’ is exactly what Walter needs. And we all know what book and movie we’ve seen that power in before, don’t we? Those of you who said The Tommyknockers can just leave.



Following on from our first look at Elba’s bad ass gunslinger earlier today, EW have the first image of McConaughey in full bad guy mode, walking the concrete of The Dixie Pig, a haven for monsters of all kinds in our reality that also has a door to Mid-World. The actor also talked to the publication about what we can expect from his character:

“Well, he is a man, actually. They wanted to go very human and grounded with this. Obviously there are mythical proportions of good and evil in Walter. But we didn’t want to go overly fantastic. That would drop the humanity. So Walter, for me, is a man who exposes hypocrisies.”
The Dark Tower is set for release February 17th 2017
