Tom Taylor cast as John “Jake” Chambers


I don’t really know who Tom Taylor is, but apparently he plays a young Uhtred in BBC’s The Last Kingdom, and according to IMDB he has been cast to play John “Jake” Chambers in the upcoming Dark Tower film.

I tend to be pretty opinionated on who I think should play certain characters in the film/tv versions of the Dark Tower series, but I haven’t had much opinion on Jake. I haven’t seen this kid act, but he looks like he might make a good Jake based on how I envisioned him in my head while reading.

Also, it looks like Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) has been cast as Tirana, but unless that is going to be a different role than in the books, it will be a tiny role near the end of the story (Tirana was one of the low women in the Dixie Pig in the 7th book)
