Damon Lindelof is going to have viewers lost as to what to expect from the ‘Watchmen‘ casting as he once again only shared a few details about who the latest actor added will be playing. James Wolk (‘Tell Me a Story,’ ‘Man Men’) has joined the production in “a major recurring role” as a junior senator from Oklahoma. Outside of that, nothing is known about his part so far.
As he’ll be in politics, I suspect that we could see him either being for or against vigilante work. The flip side is we could see him being involved in some kind of a scandal or secretly be a hero or villain himself.
Wolk will be joining a cast which already includes Jeremy Irons, Tim Mison, Regina King, Don Johnson, and quite a few more. The point of the new take on Alan Moore’s masterpiece “embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.” That being said, his new take seems to try to be capturing the same vibe while giving us a new story on Moore’s universe set years after the events of the original graphic novel.
The idea sounds interesting, and while Alan Moore will likely dislike any adaptation of his work from now until his death, co-creator Dave Gibbons is excited for this one which is a sharp change from his thoughts on previous updates in the comics.
Are you excited to see James Wolk join the cast of HBO’s ‘Watchmen’? What do you think he’ll be up to on the show as a junior senator from Oklahoma? Will he be a friend or foe to the vigilantes at large? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
