As we wait and wonder about what Zack Snyder‘s "Watchmen" will end up like, we have a big juicy casting report to share. It might not be 100% finished just yet, but it’s still fun to look through anyway.
According to Film ick, here’s what one scooper is calling the "Watchmen" cast. Some (or all) of the names are subject to change, but someone sure seems to think this is the real deal:
Kate Winslet as Silk Spectre
Patrick Wilson as Night Owl
Jason Patric as Dr. Manhattan
Jude Law as Ozymandias
Thomas Jane as The Comedian
Jeremy Irons as Moloch
Virginia Madsen as Sally Jupiter
Jonah Hill as Seymour
Henry Gibson as Mr. Figure
William Fichtner as Detective Fine
Noah Emmerich as Captain Metropolis
Gretchen Mol as Janey Slater
Additionally, IGN Movies mentions that Jackie Earle Haley might be playing the character of "Rorschach." That’d be three "Little Children" alumni in "Watchmen." Someone please find a spot for Jennifer Connelly too!
So what say the Alan Moore fans? Does this sound like a serviceable cast list? I haven’t read the book, but there’s a lot of cool actors on that list…
