    Vin's a good actor, he has some good comedic timing and he was cool as hell in the Pitch Black movie. He's just not right for Dr. Manhattan.

    yeah, Vin's more of a young action hero type actor. Doc Manhattan is a thirty year old scientist detached from humanity, not really Diesel's forte, from what we've seen of him so far.

    Wow, you must be the only person in the world who doesn't like Jude Law. How is that even possible? He's so charming. :confused:

    Eric Bana would be good for either Manhattan or Nite-Owl.

    Pegg for Rorschach and Cusack for Nite-Owl works for me!

    dude...how could you guys not see it? the perfect rorshach is SEAN BEAN. he looks just like walter kovacs. and defenitely jude law for ozymandias. and im not too sure about this (just popped in my head) but, maybe ewan mcgreggor for dr. manhattan....???? think it over for a sec. and i kind dig the idea of liotta as the comedian, who ever mentioned that.

    I love how people bring up Vin Diesel just because he shaves his head bald and the character is bald...haha.

    Eric Bana for Manhattan is a great choice. I suggested him too months ago.
    And back in the early nineties, my top choice for Ozymandias was Iain Glen and the one for Niteowl was Jeff Bridges.

    Yeah, Bana can do that whole unemotional, detached from humanity aspect of the character. Jeff Bridges does remind me of Nite-Owl, now that I think about it. That's really creepy because I just saw K-PAX, awesome movie. I'm still rooting for Pegg as Rorschach, Val Kilmer as Ozymandias, and Ray Liotta as the Comedian.

    Ok, my personal cast at the moment is:

    Rorschach - Simon Pegg
    Nite Owl 2 - John Cusack
    Dr. Manhattan - Eric Bana
    Ozymandius - Cary Elwes
    The Comedian - Dennis Farina

    I will scream this as often as I can! The perfect Rorschach is DOUG HUTCHISON. He was Percy Wetmore in "The Green Mile" and "Toomes" in The X-Files.

    Burt Reynolds should be the old Comedian.

    Cary Elwes is Ozymandius, or he SHOULD be!

    nice stuff. I love the image with Rorschach. Although they'd have to update the 2005 bit there with the big poster.
