Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen? Priceless.

CHUD is reporting that Billy Crudup, who starred in Almost Famous and Mission: Impossible III, and is the voice of the MasterCard commercials, has been cast as Dr. Manhattan in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen.

A very reliable source tells me that Snyder has settled on Crudup for the role of Watchmen’s only super-powered character, a scientist who accidentally gets annihilated on an atomic level and reconstructs himself into a big, naked, blue, floating demigod.

Visit the link above for more on this. The movie is based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s graphic novel.
