That Watchmen casting is all wrong. Really ... Can Jeffrey Dean Morgan compare to Linus? Malin Akerman to Lucy*? Jackie Earle Haley to Snoopy? Patrick Wilson to Pigpen? Schroeder to Matthew Goode? And finally -- Billy Crudup to Charlie Brown!?

This has been making the rounds for a few weeks now, but has just hit BoingBoing and my eyes. This excellent re-creation comes from Evan Shaner (check out his blog here), and really, I can't think of a better, and more fitting, spoof. It's so good, in fact, that I think Zack Snyder should add more than just the Black Freighter to the DVD. Can you imagine these guys fighting crime? Snoopy would finally get some of the toughness of his Red Baron dreams. Charlie could hang out on other planets. Linus could get randy with the sexy ladies.

It won't happen, but I can dream. We're finally less than a year away from the film's release, and anticipation is mounting. The first character stills, which were appropriately released on March 6 -- the one-year countdown -- are great, but trust me -- you ain't seen nothin' yet!

*Thanks to Gregory for pointing out my ridiculous error!
