    They've cast a dwarf instead of 'a small guy', Leslie Jordan from Will and Grace should have played him.

    If IMDB is the only source, then take this faux-news like so many grains of salt. Personally, I think it's a bit off the mark for Snyder to go all Willow with this character.

    Snyder: Henry Gibson, please!

    Among the other things, he played Edna in the Canadian stage version of Hairspray.

    Heh. I can actually see that working. That would've been insane.

    Buscemi is actually my favorite actor of our times.

    Maybe we gives him many
    Perhaps that they give him many second roles of hypocritical characters, but he had a veritable talent. You just owe to see him in the movies of Tarantino or of the Coen Brothers.

    And maybe Buscemi wasn't a bad choice for Rorscharch... After, for his voice.

    Robin Williams wasn't a great idea too for this role ? :woot:

    I guess that's how it looks in the movie then.

    It was a money thing right?

    Hopefully younger audiences aren't confused about the Earth Stood Still remake in December '08 and seeing the title in March '09 in the 1980s.

    I'm glad he's not Manhattan.

    "Dude...." :pal:

    Keanu Reeves is incapable of playing a character with emotion, and perpetually looks confused. He'd be great for Dr. Manhattan.

    that's the way I felt when he was rumoured for the role so long ago... Plus, a little bit of star power might have guaranteed more asses in seats.
    BTW, is it too late to cast Bill Cosby as Dr Malcom Long?

    I dont think his star power would help all that much. Keanu doesn't really seem to have the best reputation, does he?

    But yeah, I think he could actually play the role quite well.

    A bit too late, as they finished shooting the movie.
    Btw, we still don't know who's playing dr. Long yet.

    Who is this Mothman character? Does anybody have any pictures? Supposedly there's an actor playing him in the movie by the name of Niall Matter.

    Whoever suggested Hamill as Rorsharch is a genius. Yes yes a thousand times yes. Imagine his voice under there and it's perfect.

    Alas, not to be.

    Pegg would still have been amazing, I can hear him shouting 'GIVE ME BACK MY FACE!'

    I get goosebumps everytime I think about that lol.

    I'm sure Haley will do well though :up:
