* ToughActToFollow: Averted for the most part in regards to casting (see WhatTheHellCastingAgency), but played straight with regards to Bill Fagerbakke as Tom Cullen. It's widely agreed by fans he fit the character perfectly and the upcoming adaption will have a hard time topping that.

Though considering the ''Dark Tower'' mythos' strong ties to ''The Stand'', it might not be a coincidence...

* DracoInLeatherPants: specifically, Jamey Sheridan as Randall Flagg in the miniseries. There's a ''reason'' people wanted him back as Flagg in the [[DevelopmentHell never-to-be-made]] adaptation of ''Franchise/TheDarkTower''.
