More Watchmen cast?

While I was out catching up on some summer movies (finally saw LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD), the boys at Latino Review and IESB.net broke some scoops wide open on WATCHMEN casting. Pretty much what we know at this point is that Jackie Earle Haley and Billy Crudup are confirmed. But now we have word who will be playing Ozymandias and Silk Spectre Sally in the film. If you'd be guessing the previously rumored Jude Law and Kate Winslet, you'd be reading too many gossip sites. The real word is that Malin Akerman will play Sally and Matthew Goode will play Ozymandias. Certainly two names that never came up during the early rumor rounds but decent choices nonetheless. Akerman you might remember from her hot thresome on "Entourage" or whipping out her jubblies in HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE (NSFWness follows). Goode is probably best known for his role in Woody Allen's MATCH POINT but was also recently starring in THE LOOKOUT. It certainly seems that Zack Snyder is keeping the cast low-key and will spend more of that money on the film's effects. Sounds like a smart plan to me. Expect more announcements this weekend at the Comic-Con and stay tuned to JoBlo.com for live breaking updates from Hall H on WATCHMEN and more!

So she playing Sally, not Laurie? Damn. Didn't catch on at first. She'd be hotter as Laurie.

good choices

Akerman looks alot like Laurie, just dying the hair and she's there. I disagree deadshot, we've seen many more examples of great aging makeup in film than reverse aging. It's easier to add wrinkles than remove them. Plus Laurie looks pretty good for a 36 year old. Still not sure if synder will be able to pull this off though.

hmm...

Well... I am officially approaching this project with some trepidation. I like a lot of the casting so far... but are we going to believe this young Akerman lady is going to age almost 20 years? Because I personally would have gone the opposite route and cast someone who was older and made her look younger as opposed to the opposite because NO WAY will I buy Akerman as a 36-year-old Laurie. And my other trepidation is that there are no marquee names at all... however that didn't hurt 300 by any

But I'd like to see one more recognizable name because with the people that have been attracted to this project (like Law and John Cusack... not Keanu) I'm sure would be happy to work for close to scale for their enthusiasm for a project like this. And it couldn't hurt box office either.
