We previously told you that Warner Bros. was casting look-alikes of famous names for Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. Now, Moviehole has posted a breakdown of some of the characters that will be appearing (Spoilers ahead!):
President Richard Nixon: 35-45. We’ll be aging him up for a variety of scenes that occur from 1960-1985. The President of the United States, profane, paranoid and panicky. Looking for someone who really resembles and can closely impersonate him
McLaughlin: Circa 1985 and at age 60. The host of The McLaughlin Group, a cable roundtable newschat show, McLaughlin introduces a debate on the likelihood of nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union
Eleanor Clift: Circa 1985 and at age 45. (She’s older than 45 in the photo, but you can get the idea). One of the pundits on The McLaughlin Group, she comments on the protective power of Dr. Manhattan
Pat Buchanan: Circa 1985 and at age 47. One of the pundits on The McLaughlin Group, this conservative commentator is convinced the Soviets would never attack the United States
John Lennon: Circa Early 70’s and at age 37. Non-speaking role. Key sequence in movie
Yoko Ono: Circa Early 70’s and at age 44. Non-speaking role. Key sequence in movie
Dick Cavett: 39. Non-speaking role. Key sequence in movie. Interviewing John Lennon and Yoko Ono in early 70’s.
More names are expected to appear as well in the big screen adaptation coming to theaters on March 6, 2009.
