    In the books, Roland is a white guy, but Elba sees that as a superficial description of the character. What’s more important is the character underneath:


    “It’s better just to treat it like no big deal,” Elba answers. “There should be no difference. The character that was written in Stephen’s imagination, it could be any color. It just happens to be me and, you know? In the artwork, it just so happens to be a white guy, but I don’t think that makes any difference. … I think what’s great about it, if I want to say anything about it, is that it is a sign of the times in terms of a colorless society. People go, ‘A good actor is a good actor,’ you know?”

    Everyone freaked out when he got cast as a Norse god. "Everyone knows they're white!"

    Elba was like, " :secret: You know they don't exist, right?"

    The Cell


    TOMATOMETER

    Average Rating: 3.6/10
    Reviews Counted: 23

    Rotten: 23

    Critics Consensus: Shoddily crafted and devoid of suspense, Cell squanders a capable cast and Stephen King's once-prescient source material on a bland rehash of zombie cliches.

    Book was great, and I had reserved hopes for the movie.
