Yeah. I remember reading in TV Guide when it first came out years back that he'd be in it, playing that role. I foolishly watched it anyways. I think the book it's from is 'Four Past Midnight' that has four really great novellas in it. It's really great, you should definitely check it out.
Classically bad in a good way. Creepy premise, hilarious cgi, and the paper ripping. Would watch again for the nteenth time. All stephen king adaptations regardless of quality remind me of when i was a kid.
