More photos from the set of “The Dark Tower”show Roland and Richard Sayre played by Jackie Earle Haley. For those that don’t remember, Sayre is a Low-Man or Can-toi, and is a servant to the Crimson King. He and Roland don’t cross paths in the book, where he is killed by Susannah after giving birth to Mordred, but since this is set AFTER the book series, anything is possible. He’s seen ripping a door off a car, and involved in a shootout with Roland.

Jackie Earle Haley has black dots on his face where it will be changed in post-production. The low-men actually have rat-like heads with a human mask over the top. From a distance they can pass as human, but up close you’ll notice an open wound in the forehead that the mask – itself a living organism, uses to breathe. I cannot wait to see this film. Any other Tower Junkies out there traveling the path of the beam? Comment below if Ka wills it.

Move ahead carefully faithful reader, there be potential spoilers ahead.
