No Watchmen for Keanu, but maybe for Cusack

Actor Keanu Reeves has declined an offered part in the new Watchmen film, but John Cusack would be happy to step into the breach.
According to Club Keanu, Keanu Reeves' manager has confirmed that Keanu Reeves was offered a role in Zack Snyder's "Watchmen," but that he turned it down. Now, however, John Cusack tells MTV he would love to be a part of the film.

"I haven't read the script nor have I ever met Mr. Snyder," said Cusack. "I thought that was a really, really cool comic. I'm into it. But, you know, we have to talk to Zack's representatives. Warner Bros. might want Ashton Kutcher."

Cusack can next be seen in "1408," opening June 22.

"Watchmen," created by writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons, was released as a 12-issue comic book in 1986 and is one of the most critically acclaimed series in the genre. The comic is a crime-conspiracy story that provided the first realistic look at the behind-the-heroics lives of superhero archetypes.
