Jackie Earle Haley, More Confirmed for Watchmen Cast

Rorschach, Oxymandias, Night Owl and Silk Spectre set.

Expect to see a whole lot of Watchmen updates over the next several months. And here’s one: Jackie Earle Haley, Matthew Goode, and Malin Akerman have signed deals to appear in Zack Snyder’s Alan Moore adaptation.

(Obviously you don’t need me reminding you that Snyder gave us the kick-ass Dawn of the Dead remake — as well as that mega-wild 300 flick.)

Haley, who made a big impact (years ago) with The Bad News Bears and Breaking Away, and made a huge comeback last year with Little Children and All the King’s Men, has been cast as “Rorschach.” Latino Review also seems absolutely positive that the lovely Malin Akerman has been locked to play a character called Silk Spectre. (And also that Billy Crudup will be playing Dr. Manhattan.)

Although best known (so far) for her work in Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Ms. Akerman has a whole bunch of high-profile projects on the way. Including this one.

Also, IESB.net informs us that Matthew Goode (as “Oxymandias”) and Patrick Wilson (as “Night Owl”) have been confirmed by their sources. Whew.

As all our source point out, we can probably expect a lot of the Watchmen casting to be shared / confirmed at this week’s mega-geek-tastic Comic Con event. Looking forward to it.
