Casting the Watchmen

The fabulous Mr. Strong Bad Hunt and I had a discussion about casting the Watchmen movie. Here are some thoughts … can you fill in the blanks?
(If you have no clue as to what I’m talking about, get thee to a comic store.)

BERNARD – Ossie Davis cliossie1.gif
BERNIE – Larenz Tate tate.jpg
COMEDIAN – ???

HOODED JUSTICE – Arnold Schwarzenegger arnold.jpg
DOCTOR MANHATTAN – Daniel Craig craig.jpg
DR. MALCOLM LONG ???

MOLOCH – Peter O’Toole peter.jpg
NITE OWL I ???

NITE OWL II – Stephen Root root.jpg
OZYMANDIAS ???

RORSCHACH – William H. Macy macy.jpg
SILK SPECTRE I – Bette Midler midler.jpg
SILK SPECTRE II ???

What say you?

  1. Mr Strongbad Hunt… Heeheeheehee! I like that.

    Actually, shouldn’t both of you guys take a starring role in this? It’s not like Mr Bad to hide in the shadows.

    Um.. then again. Scratch that.

    I would totally take a starring role!! I’d be that guy who’s always bumming around, reading the pirate comics.

    That would be awesome.

  3. Concrete Block 15

    I say…

    DOUG HUTCHISON IS RORSCHACH! :

    Okay…I love the notion of Daniel Craig as Dr. Manhattan, as well as Peter O’Toole.

    Kudos.

    Macy is a stronger and more versatile actor, but I actually think David Caruso would be a decent back up choice for Rorschach. His range would work for the character. That’s an alternate choice mind you, I like Macy a great deal.

  7. Ok – still looking for suggestions on The Comedian, Silk Spectre 2, Ozymandius and Malcolm Long.
    Anyone?
