Response to A Nerd

So it seems Darren Aranofsky has been replaced by Paul “Bourne Supremacy” Greengrass to direct the upcoming adaptation of The Watchmen.

When he heard the news, Billy sent me his cast list:

Nite Owl IPaul Newman
Nite Owl IIWilliam H. Macy
The ComedianBurt Reynolds (with moustache)
The Young ComedianMark Ruffalo (with moustache)
RorschachEdward Norton or Paul Bettany
OzymandiasOwen Wilson

A day later someone on the internet had put out another line-up and also made a really great poster:

So poster guy’s cast list would be:

Nite Owl I – Michael Douglas
Nite Owl II – John Cusack
The Comedian – Mel Gibson
Rorschach – Edward Norton
Ozymandias – Ralph Fiennes
Dr. Manhattan – Ed Harris
Silk Spectre II – Catherine Zeta-Jones

Anyway so since i’m lying ill in bed and this is fun entertainment, let me make my own list. I like a few of the suggestions already, so some of the actors are similar:

Nite Owl IAlan Arkin
Nite Owl IIMark Ruffalo
The Comedian – Burt Reynolds
RorschachBarry Pepper
OzymandiasJude Law (blonde)
Dr. Manhattan – Ed Harris
Silk Spectre IHelen Mirren
Silk Spectre IIMira Sorvino

Any more suggestions?
