So I know there was the Aaron Paul announcement yesterday but apparently this got tucked in over at Bleeding Cool:

So Aaron Paul has "had a lot of meetings" about the Eddie Dean role in Ron Howard's The Dark Tower adaptation, but what about the gunslinger himself?Schmoes Know were quick to jump on that one, and bring word that according to their source, Liam Neeson is (or was, at some point) "interested" in the role of Roland Deschain. Actors previously linked to the role include Russell Crowe, Viggo Mortensen and Javier Bardem, so Neeson seems to fit into that group quite nicely.

Also? The TV portion might be on Netflix! Binge away my friends. Binge away!
