Billy Crudup Cast as Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen
Today is just full of rumors! Besides more back-n-forth on the Superman Returns sequel, the latest comes from the guys over at CHUD regarding more Watchmen casting. The Watchmen movie coming from Zack Snyder has been as closely followed as Indiana Jones IV, and that means every little consideration about who might be cast as who, becomes massive news. Thankfully we've been smart to dodge the really flimsy rumors, but this one seems a little more sure.
CHUD says a "very reliable source" has told them that Snyder has chosen Billy Crudup to play the big blue super-powered Dr. Manhattan. Although the official announcement won't come until Comic-Con, where it was recently announced that Snyder would be there and will likely be announcing the full cast, CHUD says this is certainly what we'll here when he announces.
Interesting choice? I'd say so! Crudup is incredibly talented and I've enjoyed his performance in everything he's done recently, including The Good Shepherd and his role in Mission: Impossible III. Let's just hope the rest of the Watchmen line-up is just as exciting!
