Well, Comic-Con hasn't even "officially" started yet (although it is Preview Night right now) and already there's some fantastic Comic Book-related casting news to bring you. According to the Hollywood Reporter, casting for most of the roles in director Zack Snyder's upcoming adaptation of Alan Moore and David Gibbons' classic graphic novel, the award-winning Watchmen, have just been announced.

So, who will be playing your favorite characters like Rorschach, Ozymandias, Silk Spectre and Dr. Manhattan? Well, according to the article, here's what we can expect in the way of casting: Jackie Earle Haley will be playing Walter Kovachs (aka Rorschach), Billy Crudup will play Dr. Manhattan, Matthew Goode has been cast as Adrian Veidt (aka Ozymandias), Jeffrey Dean Morgan will play the Comedian and Malin Ackerman will play Laurie Juspeczyk (aka Silk Spectre).

With all the buildup to this movie and with all the casting rumors being bandied about of late, its great to finally have some definitive answers. Although, I'm not sure how much I love some of the casting choices. I was still sorta interested in seeing Keanu Reeves as Dr. Manhattan back when that was among the rumors. I thought he would have made an interesting choice. Still, with Snyder's track record of late, I guess we should give him the benefit of the doubt here -- at least until we see some more of the film. If it starts to not look so good at that point, then we can start complaining.
