HBO’s Watchmen Get Its First Cast Members
The new Watchmen television series has cast some of its first actors. Damon Lindelof who is heading up the series has said it’ll explore other aspects of the world and isn’t an adaptation of the modern classic comic series. It will air on HBO.
Cast in unknown roles are Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, and Andrew Howard. King will have the lead role.
Lindelof has said that some of the characters for the series will be unknown. There’ll be new faces, new masks to uncover, and there’ll be an exploration of the world.
King and Johnson have yet to be attached to a comic property in their careers. Tim Blake Nelson played Dr. Allen in Fantastic Four and Samuel Sterns in The Incredible Hulk. Louis Gossett Jr. was the voice of Lucious Fox in The Batman and Jake Berkowitz in The Punisher. Adelaide Clemens appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as Carnival Girl. Andrew Howard was Luther Banks in multiple episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
