Watchmen TV series cast

Update: HBO has officially picked up Damon Lindelof’s new take on Watchmen, which isn’t an adaptation or a sequel as much as a remix of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic comic book series.

Our original story about actor Jeremy Irons joining the show’s cast can be read below.

The Watchmen TV series just added a surprising new cast member: Jeremy Irons.

Killroy Was Here Movie

Kevin Smith got his start with a true indie in the form of Clerks, a movie shot for $27,575 that ended up selected by Sundance, made $3 million at the box office, and launched the career the filmmaker has today. For his latest project, the director is going back to those lower budget roots, complete with a student film crew full of nothing but passion for filmmaking.

As we’ve previously heard, Killroy Was Here is a new horror anthology film Kevin Smith co-wrote with executive producer Andrew McElfresh. The film has been described by Smith as being in the vein of Creepshow, as well as having the “ironic twists and grisly moments” of The Twilight Zone. Now Smith has revealed one of the film’s characters, one who will be played by WWE wrestler Chris Jericho. Read More »
