The Stand trailer

No idea where this is going to stream in Australia. Hopefully not on Ten, but it’s a fair chance given the CBS connection. I think I’d have to buy it on iTunes if it ended up on FTA, butchered by ads.

I like James Marsden as Stu Redman. It’s a nice shout out to his role in Westworld. Larry Underwood was always meant to be a black man, given the way he sang. It’s good to see the producers go all in on that. I do wonder from this clip if they decided to gender swap a few roles too. I thought maybe a female Glenn Bateman might happen, but I see from the all knowing Wikipedia that Greg Kinnear grabbed up that role.

And Alexander Skarsgård as Randall Flagg?

Awesomesauce.

I’m looking forward to this.
