Flagg goes by many names in the books including Merlyn and Walter, but he’s a very cool, laid back, almost rock star character with an evil, hate driven and supernatural darkness bubbling just below the surface… all capped off with a cool Southern drawl.
We reckon the scene being filmed currently in New York will see Flagg as Walter O’Dim meeting Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) for the first, fateful time… but we’re not totally sure.
So yeah, the image above, shared by the Stephen King Writer FB page, is pretty much on the money… like a cross between the Terminator and Johnny cash.
Let us know what you think of McConaughey in the image…
