From Word and Film-
"Stephen King’s novels and stories have inspired dozens of films, which run the gamut from unforgettable to … well, extremely forgettable. The author’s TV adaptations have been nearly as frequent and just as variable, spinning memorable television “events” out of anything-goes casting and huge (for TV) special-effects budgets. The latest entry, A&E’s miniseries based on King’s 1998 novel Bag of Bones, is no exception, mixing stalwart Hollywood types like Pierce Brosnan with up-and-coming stars such as Anika Noni Rose (the “what the hell?” moment when someone unlikely like Jason Priestley turns up is yet another inevitable feature of these adaptations). Here’s a rundown of who’s who in King TV adaptations of yore."
There have been some great actors in King adaptations. Some awful ones too.
