The LA Daily News reports that the Watchmen production is facing a challenge when it comes to casting look-alikes of famous names for the big screen adaptation:
A challenging casting task involving look-alikes is under way for Warner Bros.’ “Watchmen” adaptation of Alan Moore’s 1980s graphic novel set in an alternative universe’s United States. Names include Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, H.R. Haldeman, Ted Koppel, John McLaughlin, Annie Liebowitz, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Fidel Castro, Albert Einstein, Norman Rockwell, JFK and Jackie Kennedy, Andy Warhol, Mao Tze Tung and Larry King. That’s going to be quite a movie.
The film will be directed by 300 helmer Zack Snyder. No cast members have been officially announced.
