According to AICN, three actors have been approached for Zack Snyder’s WATCHMEN Patrick Wilson, Keanu Reeves and Jude Law:
So that means we’ll see The Prom King, Patrick Wilson, suit up as Night Owl. I think he’s a great choice for Dan, and all you need to do is look at the work he did in LITTLE CHILDREN as an example of the sort of quiet sadness he’ll bring to the role.
Dr. Manhattan is a tricky part, and there’s something alien and otherworldly about him. Keanu Reeves always seems to me to be on a different wavelength than anyone else on the planet, so when he steps into the part as the big blue superbeing, it might be a nice fit.
And in the biggest “duh” of the year, Jude Law has been offered the role of Adrien Veidt, aka Ozymandias. Perfect choice, and Law’s been saying for years that he is a huge fan of the material. If anyone out there is more right for the role, I don’t know who it is.
JUDE LAW! Maybe FINALLY he will show us the location of his secret Rorschach tattoo!
Now, quickly my children, cast Sally Jupiter, the Comedian and…RORSCHACH.
