A Nice Big Slice Of Watchmen Cast Cake, Serve With Salt

Regular reader Antonello alerted me to a rumoured Watchmen cast list. Of course, I haven't been able to confirm it, so take it for what it is: a group of actors who may or may not have signed, or be in talks, but that certain whispering voices insist is 100% genuine. Of course, it is almost certainly not genuine at all and is a combination of already exisiting rumours and fanboy wish fulfillment. Why so many Little Children alum? It's not Little Children was any good or anything.

We'll soon know more Watchmen casting for sure, but myself... I'd like to believe this list. Not least because I don't have much patience for weeks of rumours and I'd just like to see it all locked off as soon as possible.

Snyder's clearly a talented filmmaker but, honestly, this isn't going to touch the book. It will probably end up looking really very redundant.

Here's the list:

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

[EDIT: And the same list now appears to have turned up on a Russian site, which adds a certain amount of fuel to the fire, don'tcha think?]

Where's Rorschach?

Rorschach is rumored to have gone to Jackie Earle Haley. And by looking at recent pictures of him it appears to be a good choice.

This rumor is shaping up to be pretty solid. Chris' info is damn good on this, unless something goes horribly wrong, but I don't believe it will.

If you've read Watchmen, you know that they won't tell you who is starring as's part of the surprise!
