Daniel Robert Epstein has an interview with Ron Perlman over at Newsarama, in which the actor says he may be up for the role of the Comedian in the Zach Snyder directed Watchmen movie. Interesting if it is true!

Daniel Robert Epstein: Besides Hellboy what has been necessary for your work in terms of reading comics?

Ron Perlman: Well, Frank Darabont is a really close friend of Guillermo’s and they share a boyish passion for comic books. The first time I ever met Frank was in a comic book store here on Melrose in Los Angeles. In aisle three we had a long, wonderful meeting and he told me I had to read League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and everything that Alan Moore wrote. Then Watchmen came up because [Hellboy producers] Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin have the rights to make the film version of that. They were pushing for me to play the Comedian.
