Michael Rooker has made a name for himself over last couple of years due to his involvements in Guardians of the Galaxy and The Walking Dead. In a recent announcement on his website earlier today, the actor has revealed that he will be appearing in the pilot for Amazon’s Dark Tower.
Thanks to the latest announcement, we now know that the actor will be joining Jerome Flynn for the upcoming pilot. However, both of the actors’ roles are unknown at the moment and it’ll be interesting to see what kind of roles both of these actors end up playing in the series.
In case you aren’t aware, Amazon’s The Dark Tower is the story of the first encounter between Roland and The Man in Black. Due to the plot, rumors over last couple of weeks have suggested that both of the actors will be playing entirely new roles with Rooker set to play the character of Cort. In case you didn’t know Cort was one of Roland’s instructors in his early years.
At the moment, these are all speculations and we will have to wait to find out more about Rooker’s role in the upcoming TV series. While it won’t be the first time we will see Rooker to appear in small screen, he hasn’t been in a whole lot of different television show after his role in The Walking Dead. As a result, expectations might be pretty high regarding his role in the series. As we move forward to the filming of the upcoming series, more details are likely to come out in the following months.
