    YYYYYEEEEESSSS!!!!! He is exactly what I pictured Big Jim looking like in the book. Maybe they could make him look a little older though….or not. I just hope I don’t end up hating the actor for the character he is going to play. Can’t wait for this show to air

    I saw the head line and thought …gotta be Big Jim!!

  3. Carrie says:

    Up until now, I thought meh, but I will definitely tune in now. Great casting choice!

  4. Nick says:

    At first, even when reading the book, I pictured John Goodman…but I actually really like this choice, it’s a meaty role for him to dig into

    This is shaping up to be a very random cast. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but still, random.
