Dustin Ingram (‘Sun Records’) has officially signed on as a “key” supporting character in HBO’s upcoming ‘Watchmen‘ series. Just as we’ve learned from most of the casting news in Damon Lindelof‘s take on this world of vigilantes, we have no idea who Ingram will be playing or what he’ll be doing in the show. This new take on the series is set in the same world as the graphic novel but years after the events from there have unfolded.
What we do know is that he’ll be joining Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, James Wolk, and Hong Chau on the show. For the most part, no one has any idea which characters any of these actors will be playing or if we’ll see any surviving from the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ graphic novel.
What kind of a role do you hope to see Dustin Ingram play in ‘Watchmen’? Do you feel that he’ll be aligned with the heroes or villains of this story? Will a “key” supporting role mean that he could even be one of the vigilantes or their enemies? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, this drama series from executive producer Damon Lindelof embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own. Produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television, based on characters from DC; executive producer/writer Damon Lindelof; executive producer/pilot director, Nicole Kassell; executive producer, Tom Spezialy; executive producer/director, Stephen Williams; executive producer, Joseph Iberti.
We’ll all be watching the ‘Watchmen’ in 2019 on HBO!
