Unlike the books and the movie, which feature a grizzled veteran warrior, the web series will feature a younger Roland and will tell the story of how he became a gunslinger and also his first encounter with the Man in Black. Game of Thrones’ Jerome Flynn (Ser Bronn) has also been cast. It earned a 16 per cent score at Rotten Tomatoes. The role of his ultimate nemesis, Randall Flagg or The Man in Black, will be played by Jasper Pääkkönen. 0
