Watchmen casting news

The Watchmen Whenever we've used the word "watchmen" or "watchman" in an article title recently, we've usually been referring to the Keanu Reeves-starring thriller NIGHT WATCH. As a result, most of you are left frustrated that we weren't referring to the Zack Snyder-directed WATCHMEN, a live action adaptation of Alan Moore's groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name. Well today, dear schmoes, we actually are referring to WATCHMEN and we have some actual casting scoop courtesy of the folks over at AICN. And, ironically enough, one of the names being bandied about for a role in the film is Keanu Reeves. If that cinematic ring-a-round hasn't sufficiently blown your mind, let's discuss casting, shall we? According to the AICN-ers, Kate Winslet wash room banger Patrick Wilson is being sought to play The Night Owl, Michael Caine old role resurrecter Jude Law is being courted for Adrien Veidt aka Ozymandias and the aforementioned former Christ-like savior K. Ree is being asked to strip and slap on some blue paint for the role of the super powered Dr. Manhattan. Not that you need me to tell you but, schmoes, please, strike back at will.

Extra Tidbit: the twelve-issue "Watchmen" series was originally published by DC Comics as a monthly limited series from 1986 to 1987.
