Watchmen: Haley as Rorschach? Wilson as Nite Owl?

The rumors swirling around the Internet of Jackie Earle Haley and Patrick Wilson being cast as Rorschach and Nite Owl respectively in Zach Snyder's Watchmen appear closer to confirmation.
Warner Bros. has now gone out to Oscar Nominee Jackie Earle Haley (Little Children) for the role of Rorschach in "300" director Zack Snyder's big screen adaptation of Alan Moore's & Dave Gibbon's classic "Watchmen." This is according to a posting by actor Paddy Considine on his official fan site. Considine was earlier being considered for the part.

Meanwhile, Superhero Hype's Max Evry recently talked with actor Patrick Wilson and decided to try to put to rest the rampant rumors that he's in talks to play Nite Owl in the film. Wilson didn't deny the rumors.

"I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about this stuff," said Wilson. "I mean, I would blab my mouth cause I certainly haven't been told to keep quiet. It's just out of respect for them trying to get everybody else on board before I go ahead and blab my mouth, but it's pretty cool."

The 12-issue "Watchmen" comic is a crime-conspiracy story that provided the first realistic look at the behind-the-heroics lives of superhero archetypes. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin are producing the film version.
