Watchmen Casting Rumors - Wilson, Law, and Reeves?!
The good folks at Ain't It Cool News claim to have a solid news scoop regarding some casting rumors for Zack Snyder's adaptation of the comic book Watchmen. No time to dabble on introductions, we'll dive right into the rumors. They say Patrick Wilson will play Night Owl, Jude Law will play Ozymandias aka Adrien Veidt, and Keanu Reeves will play the super powered Dr. Manhattan. They claim that these deals are not finalized or signed in ink, but are out to them as final offers, so it's likely they'll come together in time and turn out as real.
I'm sure we'll hit on this again once it is officially confirmed and a few more important characters (like Rorschach) are cast, but for now that's the rumor out. I won't be one to make claims about these choices, as I'm not very familiar with the Watchmen comic book, so I'll leave this up to all the real fans to discuss!
Keanu Reeves? C'mon. I like the guy but he's really wrong for this. Law I think would work. Wilson is far too young.

Jesus, Neo is the best they could come up with? I would rather see Jerry Lewis as Dr. Manhattan. I would rather they dig up Frank Sinatra, paint him blue, and use strings to move him around than have to watch Keanu fuck it up.
